Currently, Facebook is trialling its Facebook Credits virtual currency with a limited number of users, who can chose the mobile payment option when paying for items at the website’s Gift Shop. Users are thus presented with the new mobile payment option at checkout. after they choose the mobile option, users enter their phone number and a confirmation PIN is sent via SMS message to their phones. To confirm the purchase, users enter the assigned PIN and the Facebook Credits are billed to their accounts with the mobile carrier.
