It was announced today that FCA-UK regulated e-money service TransferWise has partnered with Facebook. The company has unleashed the ‘TransferWise Bot’ within Facebook Messenger. If you’re a TransferWise customer, you can now send money – and set up rate alerts through the popular Facebook Messenger app.
Here’s what TransferWise Bot does:
– It guides you through your transfers
– You can use the bot to setup transfers from the US, UK, Canada, Australia or Europe.
TransferWise Bot was built using the TransferWise API.
Scott Miller, TransferWise Head of Global Partnerships said:
Our mission at TransferWise is to bring faster, cheaper, and more convenient international money transfers to everyone in the world. Building the TransferWise bot for Messenger is a great step in that direction. It’s also a powerful example of how our API can be used to seamlessly integrate TransferWise into almost any messaging, bank, or business payment system.
