WhatsApp adds new payment method to it's messaging App in India. This App provide users with the ability to transfer funds to each other.

According to a spoke man Ndubisi Ekewewho is familiar with the development, Saying that banks have everything to worry about the risks.

“The telcos have hated the global messaging app; now the banks join the fray. The risk to banks is clear: if WhatsApp becomes very successful in payments, it may become a small bank of itself. In other words, if people decide to be leaving money in their wallets without moving them to their bank accounts, most banks would struggle [liquidity issues]” Ekewe Said.

The case maybe worse for Nigerian banks because as Ekewe pointed out, most Nigerian banks are enjoying growing transaction-based fees with ATM charges and all kinds of charges including stamp duty on digital transfer.
