The PayPal bot on Slack allows consumers to send and request money while they are chatting with friends or coworkers on Slack. The PayPal bot will be added to a Slack team by the Slack team administrator. This will allow users to link their PayPal accounts to send, request, and receive money. For the recipient to accept a payment they must also have a PayPal account connected to Slack.
