Facebook Pay Is Being Renamed Meta Pay

From PC Mag: The Meta-fication of the internet continues with the rebranding of Facebook's mobile payment platform to Meta Pay.

Available across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp since 2019, the soon-to-be Meta Pay is used by people and businesses in 160 countries for payments, split charges, gift cash, and to request money in 55 currencies.
