What is Facebook Pay?

Facebook Pay, currently called Meta Pay, is an electronic payment platform. It facilitates digital transactions across all of the Meta platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Messenger. It can be used for both personal and commercial transactions.

More About Facebook Pay

Facebook Pay was introduced in 2019 and is based on the concept of enabling quick payments within the already existing application. In August 2021, Facebook Pay evolved into a form of payment tool that businesses could include on their websites. Shopify businesses were the first to receive the service.

To use Facebook Pay, users must first connect a means of payment, which can be a debit or credit card or a PayPal account, with their Facebook profiles. Once the Facebook payment platform has been linked to an existing mode of payment, users may complete payments simply by entering the amount of money they want to transfer or pay and then approving the purchase. Users can also set up automated payments for recurring bills like subscriptions using Facebook Pay.
