Last week we showed you how to sign up for a new Slack account, and how to create a new Slack Team as well. Now we’re going to show you how to send money using PayPal’s new payments bot on Slack.
The new money transfer and payments bot is super easy to set up and also to use. Unfortunately, PayPal’s new payments bot on Slack is only available in the United States, UK, Canada, and Australia at the moment, according to TechCrunch, but I’m sure they will start rolling it out to more countries very soon.
So if you live somewhere where the payments bot is available and want to take advantage of the new service to save both money and time, then simply follow these steps:
How to Use PayPal’s Payments Bot on Slack to Send Money
- Go to Slack’s app directory, type “PayPal” in blank field at the top center of your screen and press enter.
- Install the app.
- Then follow the provided the provided instructions to link your PayPal account to your Slack account.
- Now you can pay or send money to anyone by simply something like this: “/paypal send $5 to @yourfriendsusername“.
Is that simple! Check out the video below if you still don’t believe me:
