Facebook made some announcements about its Autofill with Facebook mobile payments feature at its F8 global developer conference in San Francisco Wednesday, making the feature available to Facebook commerce provider Ecwid, as well as testing an extension of Autofill with Facebook with test partner JackThreads, TechCrunch reported.
The mobile payments product test Facebook confirmed last month is going live on a small scale Monday night, with pilot partner men’s apparel site JackThreads joined by photo-book provider Mosaic on the shopping application side and by payment processors PayPal, Stripe, and Braintree.
