ClickandBuy launches Facebook money transfer app

09 February 2010  |  1720 views  |  0 Source: ClickandBuy

Before long, all Facebook users will be able to easily execute money transfers among each other with a ClickandBuy app and purchase Facebook apps quickly and conveniently.

As one of the leading Internet payment systems, ClickandBuy makes it possible for the world's largest online community to easily and securely pay for content and services. Content and services as well as virtual goods, that Facebook users exchange with each other - and also paid content and services that are professionally offered on the platform.

The new app is geared toward "normal" users and to developers/marketers of apps. Facebook users can both transfer money - after loading the account beforehand with ClickandBuy - and request money directly from Facebook friends. For application developers, an interface (API) will already be provided at the outset. These Facebook apps can then be conveniently and securely paid by the platform users with ClickandBuy. Payments up to EUR 50 will usually be possible in the first stage - in euro and dollar currencies.

Over 1 billion images and 10 million videos are uploaded to Facebook every month - and the general Internet trend continues to clearly evolve in the direction of paid content.

"The monetisation of Web 2.0 has just started; the significance of social networks continues to grow - and ClickandBuy, with its 10 years of experience, is among the leaders again", said CEO Charles Fränkl as he explained the strategic decision to focus on the paid content model, even with social networks. "We are making our first person-to-person payment service available to the world's largest social networking community - and others will soon follow", continued Fränkl.

Most of Facebook's users hail from the USA (over 70 percent) and are younger than 25 years. In Germany and Austria, almost 10 percent of online users already use the platform; Switzerland has approximately 18 percent active users. More than 75 million Facebook users access the platform via mobile terminals.
