NEW YORK — When you are on the move, you will be able to use your mobile phone to make and receive payments on the social network.
The move is part of an overhaul that was announced Thursday by Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, that also includes a redesigned mobile site, new user interface and a new way for people to use their smartphones.
Facebook is now rolling out the new login system in Europe, Canada, Australia and the U.S. It will go live in those countries in early October, and will be rolled out to more countries as it gets approval from regulators.
“People are not going to use mobile in places where they can’t make a payment, and they’re not going, ‘Oh, I can’t go to Starbucks because I can only pay with my phone,'” said Andrew McAfee, the head of Facebook’s Payments team.
The change will allow people to make purchases online on Facebook.
“This is not the end of the road for mobile payments.
We’re still committed to enabling people to pay with their phones for the most important part of their day: shopping,” McAfee said.
Facebook said it will work with governments and regulators around the world to improve the process for people who do not have a smartphone to make payments and secure them online.
Facebook will offer payment options, such as using mobile banking apps or other mobile payment options.
The new system is designed to work across the globe and can be used by millions of people in countries where there is no mobile payment system.
It is being rolled out across Facebook’s mobile payments teams in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, according to a company blog post.
“Facebook Pay will be the first global mobile payment solution that is completely transparent and secure.
It provides the convenience, speed and security that people have come to expect from Facebook,” Zuckerberg wrote.
Facebook plans to add more countries to the new mobile payment model in the coming months, as well as other mobile-based payment services such as Uber and PayPal.
“Mobile payments are a growing industry in the U to offer convenient, fast, secure and cheap payment options for customers around the globe,” said Adam Green, chief executive of Facebook Payments, in a statement.
“We are making this change so we can support and encourage more people to accept mobile payments on Facebook.”
The move to make mobile payments more secure will help to address the growing concerns of the U, which is among the most vulnerable countries to fraud.
Facebook has faced criticism from U.N. agencies, as has the U.-China Free Trade Agreement (CFA), which has allowed Chinese merchants to undercut U., Canadian and Australian payment companies.
Facebook, which has over $1 billion in annual revenue, said in a regulatory filing that its new mobile payments system would help reduce the risk of fraud by allowing customers to choose payment providers that are trusted by their customers and are based in their home country.
“There are a lot of people out there who want to pay on Facebook, and we are making it easier to do so.
And, when we do, we want to make sure we do it right,” Mcdonald said.
“I think there’s a huge amount of people, including Facebook, who want this change to happen, and I think this is a huge win for consumers.”
The change to mobile payments will be similar to the way it works for other products.
For example, Amazon has been rolling out payment options in the United States since last summer.
Calgary will buy ice at a cost of $100 million over three years, with a $10 million deposit, to make up for a shortage of ice at homes and business offices, the city said Wednesday.
Calgary Hydro will also buy 10 million litres of chilled water for use at homes for the first time.
The city will also use $100,000 of its Hydro-Centre Plus debt to purchase more ice from the Alberta Utilities Commission.
The $100-million deal comes after Calgary Hydro reported an ice shortage last year.
The city is also buying $200,000 worth of water for a new community centre at the University of Calgary.
“It’s the most efficient way of getting more ice into our community,” said Mayor Naheed Nenshi.
