WhatsApp Payments Brazil

WhatsApp today announced that users in Brazil can now pay their local small business right within WhatsApp chat experience starting today. This new payment feature will help people looking to buy and sell on WhatsApp without having to use a payments website, another payments app or pay in person. This payment feature is rolling out to a small number of businesses starting today and will be available to more in the coming months.

As expected, user’s card numbers are encrypted and securely stored, and people are required to create a Payment PIN and use it for each payment. Also, WhatsApp is now offering customer support for this new payments feature.
