PayPal, the Elon Musk-founded online payment platform, has recently developed a PayPal bot for use inside the Slack chat application. Though PayPal has consistently been on the forefront of technological convenience, the Slack PayPal bot is the company's first foray into the use of chat-integrated systems.

Slack has over five million daily active users, and it has garnered a reputation as one of the best chat platforms for businesses. With such sustained use from professionals, incorporating PayPal into Slack has the potential to make exchanges between team members all the more convenient.

To use the Slack PayPal bot, users just have to activate the bot with the "/PayPal" command. After that, they can ask the bot to send money to another Slack user, and it will do so directly in the app.
