How to request money on Facebook using Facebook Messenger
1. Open the Facebook Messenger app on your iPhone or Android phone and tap on the conversation between you and the person you want to request money from.
If you are having trouble finding your previous conversation, or have never contacted them on Facebook Messenger before, you can start a new conversation by tapping the pencil icon in the upper-right corner of your screen and typing in the person’s name.
2. Once you have the conversation open in Messenger, tap the icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen that resembles four dots arranged in a square shape.
3. A pop-up menu will appear at the bottom of the screen. Tap on “Pay or Request.”
4. Type in the amount of money you want to request. You can also include a note. Once you’ve filled out the pertinent information, tap “Request.”
Your payment request will now appear in your conversation with the person who you requested money from. However, your payment request will expire after seven days, and you can’t control whether or not the person will actually respond to your request.
