Facebook to Test its own Mobile Purchasing Service

Purchase of items and shopping sprees via your mobile phone has been an amenity that has been there for some time now. PayPal, Amazon and Google have all entered into this arena. The latest entrant happens to be none other than Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook. The mobile buying experience afforded by Facebook is still in its nascent stages. Via credit card codes saved in their Facebook accounts, individuals may purchase items online. Already Facebook was selling Presents and allowing buyouts on its main site page. Now through this route people will be able to have a fully-fledged shopping experience without any unnecessary hassles. The single-click system is very easy to use. And already Facebook has a client, JackThreads and it is willing to sell its items which cater exclusively to young males. 

The fact that you could rent out films on Facebook, as well as buy content, is proof that this service too may prosper provided it is given the right conditions. PayPal is about to get a major rival in the form of Facebook. Google and Stripe are already in the great game of online product exchange in return for cash. Sales made in cyberspace have the advantage that they can be shipped directly to your doorstep. However, the reliability factor is where there have been certain glitches in the system. Facebook will have to learn the ABCs of building an online purchase system though since it is new to the genre. According to AllThingsD, Facebook can launch this service during next month.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
