Marvelous Team Up: PlaySpan meets Facebook

Social Networking giant Facebook partners with in-game monetization specialist PlaySpan to globally expand the reach of their virtual currency, Facebook Credits. Articles and analysis from:

InternetRetailer ” More than 75 developers use Facebook Credits in more than 200 games and applications on the social network. This agreement should spur significant growth in developers using Facebook Credits in the next few months, says a PlaySpan spokesman.”

InsideFacebook ” This deal helps Facebook quickly make it easier for users to pay in the international markets where PlaySpan has worked to develop payment partnerships.”

AllFacebook ” The additional payment options make it easier for developers to expand their international reach and attract a broader set of people, since not everyone has access to credit or debit cards or PayPal. “

Gamerlaw.co.uk Facebook Credits are an increasingly healthy source of  revenue for Facebook – consumers pay real money for Credits and use those Credits in virtual goods transactions, e.g. in games like Farmville, with Facebook deducting a 30% transaction fee.”
