How it works

It’s simple to get started with Meta Pay

Open the app

Open your favorite app

Start a payment on the apps, such as Facebook, Messenger and Instagram, you already use. There's no need to download a separate app.

Enter your payment details

Add the credit card, debit card or PayPal account you’d like to use. You can update your preferred payment method any time within Meta Pay settings.

Create a PIN for Meta Pay

Protect yourself from unauthorized transactions with a personalized PIN to control access. Once it’s enabled, you will be prompted to enter it before some purchases for additional security.

Manage your payment information

Manage and update your preferred payment method in Accounts Center at any time. You can also view your transaction history across all connected apps in the same Accounts Center.

Send money

When you're sending money to friends and family, the money goes straight into the recipient’s bank account. There’s no waiting and no fees.

(There may be fees imposed by your bank which are separate from Meta Pay.)

Meta Pay is a seamless and secure way to make payments on Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and in participating online stores. Enter your payment card or account information just once and then use Meta Pay to make purchases, send money or donate. Add a PIN or use the fingerprint or face ID on your device to secure individual payments. Meta Pay also lets you view your payment history, manage payment information and access 24-hour chat service for customer support.

We use advanced technology to keep payment information secure. Meta Pay is protected with:

  • Anti-fraud technology that monitors purchases on Meta Pay systems to detect unauthorized activity.
  • Payment card numbers are securely stored, encrypted and stored separately from your profile data.
  • Notifications that alert you if Meta Pay detects unusual activity.
  • An option to create a PIN or use the fingerprint or face ID on your device for additional security when sending money or making a payment. Facebook does not receive or store your device’s biometric information.

When making a payment with Meta Pay, you may be required to set up a PIN (PIN is mandatory in some use cases) by selecting a 4-digit numeric pass code. You may also be able to use your device's face ID or fingerprint for an extra layer of security.

You can also set up a PIN with Meta Pay for additional security when sending payments by going to Orders and Payments settings. As part of our commitment to security, we may prompt a PIN with Meta Pay verification when certain types of transactions appear as unusual activity.

Meta Pay can be set up by logging into at least one of our apps - Facebook, Instagram or Messenger. Then, enter your payment card or account information. When Meta Pay is set up on Facebook and Messenger, people can connect Meta Pay across Instagram without having to re-enter their payment information.

Meta Pay can be used on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and in participating online stores.

  • On Facebook, you can use Meta Pay to shop, donate, buy tickets for events, or games.
  • On Instagram, you can use Meta Pay to shop or make donations to charitable or personal fundraisers.
  • On Messenger, you can use Meta Pay to send money to friends and family in the United States.
  • When online stores have Meta Pay enabled, you can shop the products and services you love, and check out faster with your saved credentials.

Meta Pay may not be available in all payment use cases on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger. We are continuing to build out functionality so that more people in more places can use Meta Pay across our technologies. Check back here for updates.
