Facebook Pay will be available as a payment option for all Shopify sites in the U.S. starting in August.

Until now, Facebook Pay has been a payment system for transactions performed in Facebook’s own applications. It is used to send money, shopping, donations and more.

In August, Facebook Pay will be available to U.S. Shopify merchants to provide customers with a more seamless shopping experience.

“From the beginning of August, in the U.S., companies using participating platforms will be able to introduce Facebook Pay as a payment option directly on their website, allowing their customers to expedite payment without having to re-enter their payment information.

We will begin deployment with Shopify merchants and expect to expand availability with new platforms and payment service providers over time. “
