M365 Changelog: (Updated) Announcing Payments in Microsoft Teams

MC445767 – Updated November 21, 2022: Microsoft has updated the timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

The Payments app in the Microsoft Teams app store will help you to get paid by customers for appointments, classes, or events hosted on Teams. The Payments app is free to use with your Teams or M365 subscription as a tool for small businesses – or businesses of any size – looking to grow their revenue. At launch, the app will only be supported for businesses registered in the United States and Canada.

When this will happen:

The app will be available in the Microsoft Teams app store in December 2022 (previously November 2022) as a Public Preview.

How this will affect your organization:

Microsoft Teams users will be able to install the app from the Microsoft Teams store during the Public Preview. After users connect a third-party service, like PayPal or Stripe, to the Payments app, they’ll be able to request payments during a Teams meeting – and have customers pay in just a few clicks.
