Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our next big news is from Shopify. Last week, Shopify announced a new integration with Facebook, which enables people to purchase products and services, and also potentially donate for non-profits and ministries, with just 1-click on social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram.
I’m assuming that if Facebook is bringing all this together under one umbrella, then it might also be possible on Messenger and WhatsApp, etc., soon. So, 1-click purchase on any Shopify store that uses Shop Pay, which is their own payment system. The first time you will set it up, all the details will be stored, and after that will be 1-click similar to the 1-click purchase on Amazon. This could be big. It could have a big impact on e-commerce using social platforms.
