The new payment platform, currently live to users who are running the application on their Facebook accounts, lets users buy credits in order to make a purchase.
The much-anticipated payments model appears on the application with a ‘Pay with Facebook’ option, and users can purchase approximately 10 Facebook credits for US$1.
Although the Facebook payment roll-out happened quietly, it is sure to be followed closely by the Facebook community. A group of staunch supporters of the free Facebook model titled “We Will Not Pay To Use Facebook. We Are Gone If This Happens”, currently boasts over four and a half million members.
