1 Million Shopped On Facebook Via Payvment In Dec.

Facebook commerce platform Payvment crossed the one million shopper mark last month.

Facebook commerce platform Payvment announced an important milestone and two new hires.

Payvment topped one million monthly active shoppers in December, also tripling total transactions by its more than 100,000 sellers during the full year of 2011.

The company also welcomed new Vice President of Business Development Craig Walsey, and new Senior Director of Data Insights Jennifer Silverstein.

Walsey had served as a VP at Facebook advertising partner TBG Digital, while Silverstein comes from social gaming outfit Kabam, where she led the business-intelligence team.

Chief Executive Officer Christian Taylor said:

We’re thrilled to have Craig and Jennifer join the Payvment team. It’s been a year of significant growth for us on Facebook and Twitter across both web and mobile. These senior leaders will help us accelerate our market leadership by driving key partnerships and improving seller results and the shopping experience through data insights.

Of course, the more than one million shoppers during the month of December seems more significant, although it we wouldn’t be surprised if that number were just a seasonal phenomenon.
