You can use Facebook Pay to make seamless and secure payments on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp. Facebook Pay is available today on Facebook and Messenger in the US.

When you make a purchase from portal.facebook.com using your Facebook account, you can save your preferred payment method with Facebook Pay to use in the future when making purchases, sending money or donating within the apps where Facebook Pay is available. Saving your preferred payment method with Facebook Pay prevents you from having to re-enter your payment information each time.

If you see your previously entered payment card or account information, this is because the information has been securely saved from a previous purchase on Facebook or Messenger.

For an additional level of control, when using Facebook Pay, you can set up a PIN that can be used when sending a payment. This PIN will be used for payments across apps where Facebook Pay is available. Learn how to set up a PIN for Facebook Pay.

You can learn more about Facebook Pay at pay.facebook.com and the Facebook Pay Help Center.
