How WhatsApp Pay works
whatsapp payment function can be used for transfers with prepaid, debit cards or multiple cards with debit function without paying any fees. Please note that the card must be issued by one of the participating banks or partners (Banco do Brasil, Banco Inter, Bradesco, Itaú, Mercado Pago, Next, Nubank, Sicredi and Woop).
To use it, you just need to add the card issued by one of the banks once. In terms of security, the company claims that the user can only approve financial activities with a Facebook Pay PIN or mobile phone biometrics. In addition, card data is secured with encryption.
