Facebook, 2C2P’s Qwik Testing Payments via Pages in Thailand (Report)

Facebook is conducting a test in Thailand with 2C2P’s Qwik whereby users can make payments directly on pages via credit cards, debit cards or online bank transfers.

Facebook is conducting a test in Thailand with 2C2P’s Qwik whereby users can make payments directly on pages via credit cards, debit cards or online bank transfers.

The social network already handles payments via its Messenger applications, but not through Facebook pages themselves.

Jon Russell of TechCrunch reported on the trial, saying that Facebook and 2C2P declined to comment.

According to Russell, several top Facebook pages in Thailand are testing the use of Qwik, which brings users who click links to purchase products to a new site, where they enter their payment details.

Russell reported that he obtained screenshots of the process but did not share them due to nondisclosure agreements between pages involved in the test and Facebook.

Sources in Thailand also told Russell Facebook intends to extend the test to other countries in Southeast Asia.
