Facebook Inc(NASDAQ:FB) has now introduced the subscription payments system to all its developers, including Zynga, as it feels that this option will enable the developers to offer superior experiences and better, fresh content.
With the subscription system developers can get in customers on regular subscription basis rather than on the present system of buying virtual credits.

This move is being seen as an attempt by Facebook to boost revenues which have been seeing declining growth. The payments revenue system especially has been stagnating from late last year. The company is now left with ad revenue to drive revenues but even that is under threat with more users accessing Facebook on their mobile devices.
The new subscription system will take the same 30 percent commission that is available on Google Play or the Apple Store.
Users of Facebook's gaming applications can pay for their subscriptions through credit cards or PayPal. Developers can even offer them free trials for a limited period of time. Subscriptions can be cancelled either through Facebook's own payment system or from within the app itself.
It remains to be seen how this decision pans out for the social networking site, which has added gambling to its revenue stream.
