Extra terms. You may be presented with additional terms related to a specific purchase before you confirm the transaction. Those additional terms will also govern that transaction.

Subscriptions. If you purchase a subscription to an app or to a feature within an app, we will bill your funding instrument immediately, and then again at the beginning of each subscription period. The following terms apply for subscriptions purchased through Facebook Payments:
