SafetyPay Added as Payment Option for Facebook Credits

Dec. 1, 2011

Miami-based online payments provider SafetyPay said it has been added as a payment option for Facebook Credits. Starting next week, consumers in Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, Spain, Canada, United States, Austria, Germany and Brazil can purchase Facebook Credits online using SafetyPay. The payment method works by transferring funds from a customer’s bank account in their local currency without disclosing any personal financial information. "Along with Facebook, the largest and most influential social network on the Internet, we will provide a secure payment experience for the social online gaming world," said Manuel Montero, CEO of SafetyPay. Facebook Credits can also be purchased in the form of a gift card at stores including GameStop, 7-Eleven, Target, and Best Buy. When it is time to add more Facebook Credits to the gift card, they also may be purchased through SafetyPay.
