Ecommerce - Tips and TricksTime Warner has announced today that it is introducing a new service which allows users to pay for movie downloads using Facebook Credits.

Each film download will cost 30 FB Credits or $3 and currently the offer is only available to US residents, but undoubtedly this will change as Time Warner see how popular the service is.

Facebook Credits may become a more popular option for purchasing online where the product or brand is a tight fit with Facebook user profiles, or for digital products and apps. However, a percentage of each sale goes to the social networking site so for the majority of businesses, using an e-commerce store within your own domain may be preferable.
