Intuit has purchased Facebook eCommerce platform Payvment and will acquire its employees, technology and patents, reports TechCrunch. Payvment previously announced that it was shutting down its social commerce platform and its companion shopping site Lish.com as of March 1, 2013.

“Intuit has acquired a team of highly skilled developers who will be of great value to the social teams at Intuit,” the company said in a statement.
