WhatsApp works in a payment system like Bizum

WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging application in the world, with more than 2 billion users globally. One of the main reasons for its success is how closely it caters to users’ needs, and is continually releasing new features to meet them. Now, as published exclusively by ‘WABetaInfo’, WhatsApp is working on a payment system like Bizum .

What is Bizum?

Bizum is the mobile payment solution for banking in Spain, and in recent years it has become a medium that is increasingly used by users . Since its birth, 370 million operations have been carried out through Bizum.

The truth is that it is a very convenient payment system to use . You do not have to give the bank account number to anyone and, in addition, the money arrives at the moment.

To understand well how it works, we are going to give a simple example. If we are registered in Bizum with the application of our bank and we want to pay our part of the dinner to a friend who is also a Bizum user, we simply have to do the following.

Access the app, find your contact in the phone book, enter the amount , and that’s it! Our friend receives the money instantly in his bank account.

The WhatsApp payment system like Bizum

Well, everything seems to indicate that WhatsApp is working on a payment system like Bizum so that we can send money to our contacts through the instant messaging application.

The first tests are being carried out in India, and the icon already appears in the WhatsApp interface of version 2.21.17 for the Asian country.

But, will this functionality reach Spain and other European countries? For now, it seems that not since implementing a feature of this type requires communication with local banks and authorities , and there is still a long way to go before they give their approval.
