EASY TO SET UP: The creation of a Facebook Shop takes just a few minutes. Create your account, set up your checkout system and add your ticket options. This process can take as few as 10 minutes to complete. As soon as you have finished your product listings the store is available to promote your ticket options.
SIMPLE PROMOTION: Immediately create a “SHOP NOW” button that will appear at the top of your fan page in desktops, tablets and mobile phones. Immediately promote your event and purchase of tickets option directly to your FB fan page news feed. Choose to pay Facebook to promote the store or the specific product listings to target special audiences. We’ve had clients spend as few as $5 USD and sell out small events.
MOBILE SUPPORT: Since most social users see posts via mobile devices, make sure you store provides full mobile product review and purchase options. Sending a buyer to a website that wasn’t built for mobile purchase will likely discourage a purchase. Use a solution that has been optimized for a mobile Facebook buyer.
FLEXIBLE GATEWAY: Accepting as many purchase options as possible is always best. ShopTab selected to standardize on PayPal’s gateway since it processes credit, debit and PayPal payments in over 190 countries. Additionally, you can add in our Cash on Delivery Facebook option for those buyers or markets where that purchase intent option makes sense.
