The new Mobile Payment from Facebook
Author Avatar


Shopping at online retail stores or websites has been the in-thing over the
past few years, there are websites all
about ecommerce in Malaysia
, yet one major hassle remains for most folks:
filling in your credit card information. Facebook might have came up with a
solution for that.

Announcing a new autofill product trial a spokesperson for the world’s
largest social network said:

“We are working on a mobile payments test called Autofill with Facebook
that gives people the option to use their payment information already stored on
Facebook to populate the payment form when they make a purchase in a mobile
app. The app then processes and completes the payment. The test is designed to
make it easier and faster for people to make a purchase in a mobile app by
simply pre-populating your payment information. Today we started publicly
testing Autofill with Facebook on two iOS apps – JackThread and Mosaic.”

Mark Zuckerberg and his team at Facebook are rolling out Autofill over the
coming weeks
. It’s a beta trial so it will only work if your credit card
info is stored in your Facebook page or account. The principle market for the
new time-saving feature is customers who shop from their smartphones, by simply
pre-populating your details you will not have to struggle entering your credit
card number, name and other security details on a tiny mobile screen.

The first two apps trialling the service are powered by Braintree
and Facebook has plans to work more with them along with both PayPal and Stripe
so it’s obvious there are far bigger plans afoot to make shopping on the go
even easier!
