Users Can Securely Exchange Money on WhatsApp Using Novi Payments
Moreover, with the expected feature, Novi Payments, WhatsApp users will have a new secure way to exchange money with friends and family instantly. The digital wallet requires no fees for instant money transfers and given that the privacy of users and their information is prioritized by Novi Payments, the incorporation of the digital wallet feature is “totally compatible with the principles of WhatsApp”.
However, WhatsApp users cannot utilize the service currently because it is not available for the public yet as Whatsapp is testing how to integrate Novi Payments into the app. The tests are between the developers so the time of the arrival of this update for the public is not certain.
