SafetyPay Added as Payment Method for Facebook Credits

On Friday, SafetyPay was added as one of the 80 payment methods for Facebook Credits. According to the Facebook Help Center, “Facebook Credits are a virtual currency you can use to buy virtual goods in any games or apps of the Facebook platform that accept payments.” This is a project that began as a beta test in 2009 and was finalized July 2011. Most Facebook users can access this by going to the newly added Payments tab within their Account Settings. 

The goal of Facebook Credits for websites is to allow developers to create a unified experience beyond Facebook apps, and hopefully one day have all websites process virtual goods using these credits. 

Currently, SafetyPay can be used a s a payment method for Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Spain, Austria and Brazil.

Introduction to SafetyPay

Safetypayblogimage

Welcome to the official blog of SafetyPay. SafetyPay is a Secure Payment Facilitator and Clearinghouse benefiting online shoppers, online merchants and banks. SafetyPay allows shoppers to pay in local currency through their own trusted financial institution without the need for a credit card. The consumer never needs to divulge personal financial information to retailers. SafetyPay works behind the scenes to clear and settle the payment through bank partners.

Outside the U.S., credit cards are not universally held. In most countries, card penetration and usage are in fact small. Many cards issued in foreign countries can only be used in the market where they are issued and are deemed useless for most online shopping. Among the base of potential card-holding shoppers, security concerns limit shopping. Few countries protect consumers with legally-imposed liability limits for credit cards, leaving cardholders exposed to misuse of their information. Transaction security is cited as primary concern and cause for not purchasing online. Even shoppers that overcome their uneasiness with card use are often kept from purchasing by fraud-filtering systems. Often only U.S. credit cards are allowed to limit fraud risk, leading merchants to restrict purchases with non-U.S. cards. Over 50% of the top 100 U.S. online retailers do not sell to customers with foreign cards.
