What Is Facebook Pay?


Facebook is no longer a simple social media site that allows people to chat with each other. It has grown to a well-functioning marketplace specialized in dealing with certain types of retailers and e-commerce goods.

Basically, Facebook pay is Facebook’s very own online payment portal that allows you to have smooth transactions for any goods you purchase or sell over the platform. Other than that, you can send money to your friend, make donations, purchase games, pay for Facebook ads, buy tickets for the events hosted on the Facebook platform, and much more.
