Facebook Messenger bots can now accept payments

VentureBeat:

Facebook Messenger bots can now accept payments from customers without making them leave the Messenger app, said Messenger VP David Marcus. The ability to make payments is one part of the Messenger platform update to version 1.2 announced today. Before the update, merchants and businesses using Messenger had to finish transactions in a web browser or app. The ability to make payments within Messenger brings it one step closer to becoming a platform for conversational commerce like the kind practiced by WeChat in China.
