Azimo Now Allows Digital Money Transfers through Facebook Messenger

August 9, 2016         Written By John H. Oldshue

Facebook has teamed up with Azimo to allow users to send money to one another through Facebook Messenger. With the Azimo app, available for both Apple and Android devices, customers can digitally transfer money to over 190 countries.

Here’s how it works: A user downloads the Azimo app to a smartphone or tablet. On the app, you can request another person’s payment details through Facebook Messenger. After they respond to the prompt, you will get a reply in your inbox. This will create a portal through Facebook Messenger that allows you to send money to that person in the future without filling out any extra forms. The recipient can choose how they want to receive their funds, either through their bank account or through one of Azimo’s 290,000 pickup locations.

In addition to permitting digital money transfers through Messenger, Facebook has now opened the door for small businesses to sell to their customers for free using their Facebook pages. The companies get the benefit of drawing in business through their social media account, and Facebook gets the potential to gain new customers for its paid advertising program.
