Our Mission – We live to help businesses grow faster through the use of technology and social networks to promote meaningful interactions with their clients and prospects.
ShopTab started as online store owners, just like you. In 2009, we had a Facebook page and believed it could be a powerful option as an e-commerce platform – a Facebook Store. We had lots of fans talking about our company and our products and we felt like given them an option to purchase from us was important for their overall experience. From this, ShopTab was born. Today we have thousands of Facebook Store owners in over 60 countries, using over 50 currency options.
The Social Commerce market and ShopTab have seen dramatic growth since 2009. Through this expansion, we continue our promise to deliver easy to deploy applications that demonstrate immediate success through direct sales, meaningful dialog and enhanced client/prospect relationships. We combine our solutions with a unique education-based set-up process to allow our clients to quickly realize the benefits of our promise. After this early success, we offer a highly trained support team, industry leading support system and the latest in communication possibilities via phone, email and real-time online text and video options.
We look forward to delivering on the promise of your Social Commerce success. Let us know how we can help you.
