Just this week, London-based TransferWise has announced it has integrated its API with Messenger, to offer money transfers with its bot. If you already use the service to transfer money, this means you can now send money and set up rate alerts directly through its TransferWise Bot, without ever leaving Messenger.
[quote]You can use the bot to setup transfers from the US, UK, Canada, Australia or Europe [and when] you’re sending money, it’ll guide you through each step.[/quote]
Yes! The TransferWise Messenger bot is handy – and helpful. The announcement also mentions that the bot will also “help you out” if you get stuck at any point. Additionally, as I mentioned above, it will also send you alerts, so you’re alway on top of the daily exchange rate. Alerts can be set up for as many currencies as you want, and the bot will send you an update every morning for your reference.
And if the rate is right, you can simply “ask the bot to set up your transfer.” You can chat with the TransferWise Bot here.
The company explained that its

Integration of the TransferWise integration with Messenger also shows how easily it is for “any messaging, bank, or business payment system” to set up payments. Developers can integrate with the API to make payments across the globe.
