…allows Facebook account holders to place a virtual store containing products sourced through Doba into their Facebook account.
Orem, UT (PRWEB) February 6, 2011
Doba, a leader in drop ship product sourcing for online retailers and small businesses, announced today the release of a new application for Facebook. The application, called My Deals, allows Facebook account holders to place a virtual store containing products sourced through Doba into their Facebook account. The application is the first of its kind from a company in the drop ship product sourcing industry.
The My Deals application gives online retailers the ability to open a storefront directly inside of Facebook, and can be placed within any type of Facebook account including personal and fan pages. Doba members using the application can select from more than one million products that are available in the Doba catalog and have them automatically populated directly into their My Deals storefront on Facebook. Users can then share the products in their storefront with their Facebook connections. Brandon Delgrosso, EVP of Sales and Marketing at Doba, said, "We are excited at the additional opportunities for sales this application brings to our members. We are in business to help them succeed in online retail, and this gives them a powerful new tool to use."
The application incorporates the Doba Watch List technology to manage and track the products the user is interested in selling. The user can then seamlessly 'push' the chosen products contained in the Watch List into their My Deals storefront using Doba's Push to Marketplace tool. Additionally, the Push to Marketplace tool can be used to push products to eBay, eBay Stores, and ProStores. To support their stated goal of simplifying product sourcing, Doba is the first drop shipping company to release such an extensive set of tools. Delgrosso went on to say, "With the release of the My Deals application, we continue to distinguish ourselves as a thought leader in the drop ship arena."
Current Doba members can begin using the application immediately by accessing their account settings page within the Doba platform. Facebook users who are not Doba members, but would like to take advantage of the application, can sign up for a free, 7-day trial to Doba at the company's website doba.com.
