Facebook Publishes Local Currency Payments Tutorial For Developers

Facebook’s conversion from Facebook Credits to local currencies goes into effect Sept. 12, and the social network prepared a tutorial for developers to aid them in the transition.

Facebook announced the tutorial in a post on its developer blog, saying that it includes a step-by-step guide to the process, as well as sample code illustrating how to integrate local currency payments into applications.

The social network began the process of phasing out Facebook Credits last June, and efforts to ensure that developers were prepared picked up steam in March, with a detailed blog post and a presentation during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
