Best Facebook E-commerce Apps

Best Facebook E-commerce AppsThere are many apps available on Facebook; many for only fun but some are real business. Following are two of very popular Facebook apps which ecommerce startups can use to setup their businesses in early stages. These functionally reach apps allow you to taste the water before jumping into sea. Have a look!

Storefront Social

Storefront Social creates a tab on your business’s Facebook page that allows you to showcase items in your online store. Some templates include options to tweet or share specific items, and shoppers can search by customizable categories or with a search bar. In order to set the store up, you need to install the Storefront Social app. The basic package costs $9.95 per month.
You cannot use the store as your sole storefront because there is no way to complete a transaction using the platform. Rather, people who wish to buy your products are directed to the product URL that you provide.

Advantages

  • It helps to showcase your products on the Facebook page with its entire price and other information.
  • The best thing is that it shows various sharing options beside the product. For e.g like, share, tweet etc. This will help the shopper to share the product with his friends and other people.

  • If you are a seller on eBay or Amazon, you could link to your listings on those sites, as well.

Disadvantages

  • If someone clicks the product from the list, the shopper is being redirected to the website which the product has been linked.
  • Online transactions cannot be done as there’s no way of transaction through Facebook.
  • It totally depends on the website. Whether the application is activated but the website is down then it’s of no use.
  • When shopper click on the product to purchase he goes to an expired website leads to negativity of never visiting again.

  • This is not true Facebook ecommerce store app but good for promoting our products.
