For your protection, Meta Pay needs to confirm your identity before a transaction can be attempted. This means that to use payments in messages, your Facebook profile name and date of birth must be verified to match your government-issued ID.
We understand that sometimes the name on your ID isn't the name you most commonly use. We're sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
