Facebook Commerce applications like Soldsie capitalize on social media norms of commenting on status updates and the viral newsfeed effect. F-commerce transactions through Soldsie can be easily executed on computers, tablets and smart phones.
Santala stated "F-Commerce levels the playing field for the little guys, it affords us the opportunity to reach markets that we otherwise would not have access to."
When discussing the new application and the impact on her store's business Santala said, "The store has had a very robust Facebook flash sale business for months now and Soldsie has made the process of managing the transactions from claim to shipment so much better from our customer's perspective, as well as ours. Before implementing Soldsie, customers would have to post their email addresses in the comments and we would manually create individual PayPal invoices in response to customer requests for items. Issues would arise around who claimed an item first and if someone didn't pay for an item we would have to try and dig back through old posts to see if someone else wanted to waitlist for that item. Soldsie timestamps each claim as it comes through and automatically waitlists claims in excess of available inventory, if someone doesn't pay for a claimed item within 48 hours the application automatically cancels the invoice and initiates an invoice for the next waitlisted person."
Haute Mommies and Bella Babies looks forward to continued F-Commerce success with the assistance of the So41ldsie app. Visit the store on-line, on Facebook or in person at 477 Bay Area Blvd Houston, TX 77058.
