Share Article

LC E-Commerce Solutions has released sellSocial, a new e-commerce application which allows instant secure purchasing directly within Facebook. sellSocial features simple deployment and management of an online shop without requiring a separate dot-com site.

The sellSocial store tool allows the merchant to feature unlimited items right on the Facebook page - no SSL worries, no need for a separate dot-com site.

LC E-Commerce Solutions has released a new e-commerce application named sellSocial as part of its Tacoma RIA E-Commerce suite of applications.

Most businesses attempt e-commerce on Facebook by establishing a storefront, which either redirects the user to the merchant’s own dot-com site, or redirects the user to an intermediary e-commerce-enabled site which charges the business a percentage of sales. sellSocial is an actual shop for Facebook, meaning that the business can sell the items directly in the application on Facebook, without the need for a dot-com site. sellSocial will allow the tens of millions of small businesses in the US to leverage the incredible networking and data mining capabilities of the Facebook Platform to generate incremental revenue at minimal cost.

The sellSocial store tool allows the merchant to feature unlimited items right on the Facebook page - no SSL worries, no need for a separate dot-com site. For just $19.95 per month (less than half the cost of traditional e-commerce hosting), and a 30 cent per transaction fee, a business can be running a Facebook store within minutes. Real-time shipping costs are calculated right in the Facebook shop, and all the money from the sale goes directly and instantly into the business’ PayPal Standard account.

Some of the unique features include:

  •     No programming
  •     No dot-com site needed
  •     Set-up in minutes
  •     Easy to manage
  •     Dynamic shipping
  •     Streamlined checkout
  •     No long-term commitment (monthly activation allows flexible start/stop)
  •     Set-up service available for an additional flat fee.

sellSocial is the social commerce application of the company’s original product, the E-ComBanner, which allows instant deployment and management of an online shop in a unique banner which can be embedded within any web page. Checkout within the E-ComBanner is powered by PayPal, Google Checkout, and Authorize.net; and customers’ products and E-ComBanners are managed by an easy-to-use desktop application. The application was built with Adobe® Flex® Builder and leverages Adobe® LiveCycle® Data Services ES and Adobe® AIR® for a unique combination of enterprise class data services capabilities, cross-platform reach, and an expressive user interface.
