Facebook plans to extend the reach
its virtual currency and test Credits outside of the social network
by teaming up with developers.

By letting developers offer Credits on
websites, Facebook can
“offer a more unified app experience to users beyond apps on
Facebook”, according to Facebook.

Facebook developers’ blog states that gaming
portal GameHouse is trialling the system for Collapse! Blast and
players will pay for the game using Facebook Credits instead of the
normal options of cards and PayPal.

“We have seen a lot of interest in international payment options
for Facebook Credits, so we have added new payment methods to
enable you to better monetize your apps in more countries”,
Facebook has announced on its developer blog.

Facebook now supports over 80 payment methods
in more than 50 countries globally, and it continues “to actively
expand” its footprint, Facebook developers’ blog mentions.

Some of the recent additions include:
