Students spend enough time on Facebook, so they might as well be able to pay their bills while they’re on the social network. That’s the thinking behind SmartClick, a payment interface that incorporates Facebook plugins to accomplish that task.
According to ZDNet’s iGeneration blog, users who set up SmartClick accounts can access a portal via Campus Apartments groups on Facebook that allows them to set up automatic monthly payments, link their credit cards, and handle customer-service and billing issues via the portal.
Multiple users of an account, such as parents and guardians, do not need to be connected via Facebook, keeping the students’ Facebook content private.
