For the last month the team have been working on a new type of Facebook Store integration. 

Previously, the definition of a Social Store in Facebook referred to a simple data feed where there was a product list with links back to the product on your normal store. This is a standard operation for most shopping cart software's, however with the recent release of another company making complete stores within Facebook only, Ashop chose to take this to a new level.

This time we've created a complete store with order processing and store navigation all within you and your friends Facebook profiles, all for free!

The Ashop Commerce Social Store is a clone of your normal store except for the template which is governed by parameters within Facebook. All your categories, brands, custom pages, products and more will all be accessible to show off.

How do customers purchase from my Social Store?

Your Social Store is an App that you need to create within Facebook. Your App can then be added to any Facebook profile, where your customers then purchase from. It's similar to all those games you see in Facebook that you add to your profile to play. It takes a matter of seconds for anyone to add your store app to their profile and continue to a purchase anytime, anywhere.

Customers who are your biggest fans no longer need to purposefully visit your online store, they are delivered your store every time they log into Facebook. What better advertising is there than that??

You can advertise your App within Facebook, or you can simply invite friends to install your App. Each time a friend installs your App or purchases from it, a post will be made on their wall. More fantastic marketing exposure for your store and brand name.

Here's a preview of a mock-up store. (logo is customisable)


We hope the new Social Store App brings your store to a new level in social networking.
