Recently Whatsapp has launched the payment feature in its app. Payment feature of whatsapp means that you can now send money through Whatsapp. These features are currently in beta mode. It means that some people have got the permission to use it. Gradually it will be available for everyone. But there are some things about this feature that will lessen your happiness.
Have a look at some of the cons using whatsapp:
Money will go to the bank account only
If you feel like storing money on Whatsapp, then stop it. Whatsapp is not an e-wallet system. Meaning you will be able to send money only to someone’s bank account. Like any other wallet, you will not be able to deposit money.
Purchase not possible
Whatsapp is still a messenger app only. There are no plans for the company to convert into an online store. Therefore, no purchase can be made on this. So give up the idea of running a business on Whatsapp. Although, you have an option to switch to Whatsapp business.
It is not possible to send money to the whatsapp group
If you are thinking that after forming a group of liabilities and sending money to everyone, stop it. Money cannot be sent to everyone in the group. Sending money to anyone is possible only in an individual chat.
