BBM will soon let you make and receive PayPal payments

BlackBerry has started testing a new BBM feature that allows you to send and receive money using PayPal from within the messenger app. The feature is currently available for BlackBerry, iOS, and Android BBM users in Canada, and will roll out to other markets in the coming weeks.

The way it works is: first you have to select the PayPal "Send Money" icon in BBM and connect your PayPal account. Once your contacts also do the same, you can start sending money to them by selecting the PayPal icon in the app, entering the amount of money, reviewing the details, and finally hitting the send button.
Another thing worth mentioning here is that you don't need to have the PayPal app installed on your device for the feature to work.
