Facebook has updated its mobile payments
system to make the check out process easier and faster.

The updated version of the m-payments system
now has just two, instead of seven, steps involved in the purchase
payment process.

Facebook has labeled it a “low-friction
carrier billing” service that is already available in the US, the
UK and will be rolled out in other countries as well, a blogger for
Facebook’s developer site wrote.

“The payment flow is simple. Users who want to
pay for a virtual or digital good in a mobile web app open the
payment dialog and confirm their purchase. This payment flow
requires no typing,” the
blogger wrote

“Developers who already integrated Facebook
Payments on the mobile web don’t need to do anything to benefit
from this new flow. Mobile web developers interested in adding
Facebook Payments to their mobile website can integrate through our
payments API. Instructions and tips can be found here. To see
