Sell Your Products on Facebook for FREE!

Traditionally, store owners have sold their products at physical shop fronts. We’re now in the internet era and many store owners are moving onto the world-wide web to sell their products via eBay or their own e-commerce websites. With the boom of social media and Facebook, some store owners are taking it a step further and selling products on Facebook. You can now launch your own FREE store on Facebook and I’ll show you how.

Payvment have created a great new Facebook application that allows you to launch your own FREE Store on Facebook with just a few simple clicks of your mouse.

By installing the Payvment application on your Facebook account you will be able to create your own e-commerce store and upload your products via a simple interface within Facebook. Once you have named your store and uploaded all of your product images and descriptions, you’re ready to attach your store to your Public Facebook page. For example, if you sold shoes on your Facebook shop you could create a public Facebook page called “Awesome Shoes” and attach your new Facebook shop to that page for all your friends (and the world) to see.

The Facebook store is fully functional and even allows people to buy products via PayPal while still inside Facebook. As an added bonus, your products will be added to the global Shopping Mall which houses all the products from each and every Facebook Store.

It’s a great idea and I thought that Facebook would have actually created an e-commerce facility themselves already. They could take a revenue share of each an every transaction much like PayPal does. It makes sense to use the social power of Facebook to sell products as people will share the products they like with their friends making it easier for sellers to spread the word about their products. It’s great to see that the Facebook Shop Application is currently free and it looks like the creators want to keep it that way.

To create your own FREE store on Facebook simply visit Payvment.com and use your PayPal email address to sign up. Happy sales!

    Check out Moluko (http://moluko.com/) – allows you to run your own fully featured and customizable Facebook store. The best I’ve seen!

    Cool, thanks Adam. It looks like Moluko costs $19/month though. Payvment looks a bit more polished and it’s free to use. Any advantages of using Moluko?

    Cool article and website there Adham. Free is good for those who do not desire to have any custom look or options for their Facebook store. I’m also with you on that monthly fee? Wow it’s hard to believe that people still would pay so much by the month. We have templates for FB but they are one time purchase but it’s good to offer freebies to our clients so I posted this article on our FB for ya!

    Take care,

    Thanks Scott, it will be interesting to see if Facebook Stores do catch on and become more popular. I haven’t seen too many of them so far.

    Is this legal with FBs terms and conditions? I’ve seen them shut down pages for breaking the rules, so I want to be sure first! Thanks!
