What kinds of payments does Facebook accept?

The following payment methods are currently accepted by Facebook: Credit card payments are available in the U.S., Canada, and certain other countries where indicated below. Direct debit is available in the U.K. for Basic Accounts only (see “What is a basic account?”). Most other payment methods are currently not available internationally, but this may change in the future as we expand into new markets around the world. Note that your country/region setting on your PayPal account must match with the country/region you select when signing up for a Facebook Payments profile before you can pay using any type of payment method except credit cards or direct debit from your bank account.

What is a basic account?

A basic Facebook Payments profile is an account type that allows you to make purchases using your bank directly and incur no fees from us. If you have a Basic Account, you’ll be asked whether you want to pay by credit card or by direct debit from your bank when purchasing items on Facebook at participating merchants. For more information about how to set up a Basic Account please read here.

What is merchant verification & How does it work?

When creating a Facebook Payments profile, we ask you for some basic information about yourself such as your name, date of birth, and email address so that we can verify the payments associated with your account. We will then send you a link to a secure, third-party website where you can enter additional information such as your address and phone number. We do not store any of this information on Facebook servers. Some countries/regions may require you to provide an ID number or other government-issued documentation when creating a profile for merchant verification purposes, in which case we will ask that you visit the same secure website so that we can confirm the validity of your account and acquire the necessary documentation. If Facebook cannot verify who you are, your payment method may be declined or your account suspended until you can verify your identity.

Why did I receive a message saying my credit card was declined?

There are many reasons why payments made on Facebook might result in a declined transaction Perhaps your credit card has expired, your bank account doesn’t have enough money in it, you don’t have enough credit available on your card to make a purchase, or Facebook couldn’t verify who you are. It’s also possible that there was an issue with the payment processing network and the transaction didn’t go through because of technical difficulties beyond our control. Others may discover their payments were declined because they had set up multiple profiles for merchant verification purposes but did not complete all the steps necessary to create those accounts before attempting to make a purchase. If a problem arises during any step of this process, Facebook will notify you by email so that we can resolve the issue quickly.

How do I receive refunds for my purchases?

How long does it take to receive refunds for purchases?

PayPal will issue full refunds for purchases paid to Facebook within 14 days of payment.

In some cases where fraud is suspected, we reserve the right to process refunds for purchases made at merchants that have been manually approved by Facebook’s control team. In these cases, we will work with our partners at PayPal to process all refunds within 10 business days of the initial order confirmation email from the merchant.
