Facebook is now using its e-mail address to allow users to make payments and receive notifications via e-mails rather than SMS.
This move is not yet available to all users, but Facebook has made it available to some users.
The change comes as Facebook is set to unveil a number of new features for its eCommerce platform, including mobile payments and a new email address that allows users to send e-mails.
Facebook has also made it possible to receive notifications from friends.
The move comes as the company is set for a major roll out of new mobile payments services in the coming months.
Facebook will launch its own payments platform for mobile apps later this year.
