Are you a Westpac customer and love spending time using your social messaging apps? Now, you have a reason to rejoice! If you hated quitting your messaging apps to get back to the boring stuff related to personal finances then very soon your problem can be solved.
You will now be able to send and receive payments right from within your social messaging accounts in Snapchat, Twitter, or Facebook Messenger.
How will that be possible?
Well, for all Westpac customers, the company will now provide a secure keyboard that will give you easy access to the existing apps of the bank. With these apps, users will be able to share their bank details with others and also make payments online without having to leave the messaging apps. The users will also be able to use the app to generate and send codes that will enable the receiver to withdraw the said amount of funds from the customer’s bank account using the ATM.
According to Travis Tyler, the consumer digital general manager at Westpac, to pay your friends and family members on your contacts list, you simply need to tap on the Westpac icon you see on the keyboard. This will enable you to pay with ease without having to leave the messaging app.
The unique six-digit code that is generated by the app will expire after being used once or within a period of 3 hours. To ensure security, this code can only be used at a Westpac-affiliated ATM.
