We run an e-commerce company & also have a facebook page. Now, we want to explore the idea of giving customers to buy our products from our facebook fan page. Ideally, we would have liked to use a facebook app that talks to our webstore standard shopping cart - but currently, our webstore uses custom code - so that's not really an option.
Here's what I'll like the customer experience to be like:
- Fans / followers / others should be able to see the products as they would appear on a typical fan page - ie as pictures
- Along with the picture / comments / likes, customers see an option to buy the item. The payment gateway can be directly integrated onto facebook
Ofcourse, there'll be some changes required from our (seller side)
- company registration details, bank details, product details
- order management dashboard
but the user experience should be as seamless to a seamless fan page. Most of the facebook apps I have glanced through (Payvment, Ecwid, Bigcommerce, Vendorshop, fanpage-toolkit) either make a tab (which suffers from low visible)or integrate with an existing standard webstore shopping cart - neither of which meet our current need.
Any suggestions on the right facebook app / way to go about this?
