Small Money Payments Now Possible On Facebook [news.bbc.co.uk]
Friends on social networking site Facebook can now send small payments directly to each other via an application called Buxter.

Buxter handles transactions in Euros or US dollars, with plans to launch in Sterling in the next four weeks.

Other currencies are subject to a 5% conversion fee at the point of upload to a Buxter account.

Transactions between Buxter accounts are free to make and receive but a 1.9% commission fee, minimum 2 euros or $3 (2), is charged to move the money to another source such as a bank account.

For a second their I though facebook where going to process the payments, which would be extremely interesting as they could use it to tax developers.

Turns out its just an app built for facebook, which raises the question, is their a paypal facebook app?
