Facebook Pay Brings Consistent System to Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp

Facebook Pay

Because Facebook has so many different services that so many of you unfortunately use,  they wanted to integrate a payment system that is more consistent. Today, they are introducing Facebook Pay to help with that, so you’ll soon have a similar payment experience between Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp.

What can you do with this new Facebook Pay? This is how Facebook described it in a press release today:

  • Add your preferred payment method once then use Facebook Pay where available to make payments and purchases on our apps, instead of having to re-enter your payment information each time
  • Set up Facebook Pay app-by-app, or choose to set it up for use across apps (where available) — that means we won’t automatically set up Facebook Pay across the apps you are active on, unless you choose to do so
  • View payment history, manage payment methods and update your settings in one place
  • Get real-time customer support via live chat in the US (and in more places around the world in the future)
  • Clearly understand which payment services are part of Facebook

To start, Facebook Pay arrives on Facebook and Messenger this week for fundraisers, in-game purchases, event tickets, person-to-person payments, and purchases from select Pages and businesses from the Marketplace. The Instagram and WhatsApp integration will happen “over time.”

To find Facebook Pay and get setup with a payment method, you’ll open Settings>Facebook Pay on Facebook or within Messenger.
