Finally we can send money by WhatsApp without exiting the application. A very fast way to settle our accounts with anyone to whom we owe money.
Waiting for that WhatsApp implement its native function of sending money, which they are already testing in countries like Brazil, BBVA has launched the service BBVA Cashup that allows us to send money to any contact you have Bizum activated in your bank account and have your mobile phone linked to it.
It is very simple to use, that is, as long as you have an account in the BBVA. The app allows us to download a third-party keyboard that, when activated, allows us to send money for WhatsApp, Telegram or any other app. Next we tell you how to activate it and how it works.

To activate the service that allows us to make payments through a messaging app, first of all, you must sign up for Bizum.
Bizum is a platform that allows you to make instant payments with anyone. With this you will avoid having to make tedious bank transfers.
If you are registered, you must perform the following steps to activate the service BBVA Cashup:

- At the bottom of the screen that appears, click on “BBVA Cashup”. There he will explain how to activate the keyboard that will allow us to make payments through WhatsApp, Telegram … or from the app you want and that allows you to show that keyboard. Here we leave them in image.
This is how payments are made by WhatsApp:
Once we have the keyboard activated we access WhatsApp and We enter the chat of any person, group or the person to whom we are going to send the money.
You have to give your contacts access to the BBVA app in order to carry out this step. To do this, go to Settings / Privacy / Contacts and activate the BBVA box.
