Facebook Selling in Minutes with PayPal Checkout

April 2, 2012 by Kevin Gralen

Note: After this original blog ShopTab delivered a fully integrated PayPal Facebook Store option.

We participate in phone calls, emails and live chats every week from clients throughout the world that are new to online selling.  For a myriad of reasons including cost, resources and geography, they haven’t made investments in traditional online selling options like e-commerce websites or third-party marketplaces.  These retailers are looking for impactful ways to bring their products to market while minimizing implementation effort and cost. A Facebook Shop can provide the perfect platform for these merchants.

As noted in numerous recent articles and research, a Facebook Shop can be a very effective selling and promotion solution for marketers.   From small boutiques to large brands, these retailers have created a unique presence in Facebook and leveraged the social nature of their fans to promote their Facebook Store.  However, from new clients to online selling we continue to hear concerns creating a simple and viable payments processing system for their organization.   From over two years of experience in social commerce, we feel that combining PayPal payments with ShopTab can put these new retailers in business in a matter of minutes.

Advantages of PayPal payments for these merchants:
- PayPal is the most widely used online payment systems
- PayPal supports most major credit cards for client payments
- The service is able to process payments in 190 countries
- The implementation is fast, simple and scalable
