Soldsie – social selling on Facebook and Instagram for Magento

During last few years, Soldsie has gained the status of the most successful social selling platform and now it is opened to the integration with Magento. Social selling is a relatively new trend in e-commerce. It consists of 2 major components: 1) a retailer posts a product image along with it’s price and other useful information on a social network and 2) offers an easy way to make a purchase. The social shopping experience of Soldsie begins when a retailer posts a product photo along with all the data necessary for every customer (price; availability) on Facebook or Instagram. Shoppers then leave the world “sold” under this photo and continue browsing. When a shopper is ready to check out, the commented item is in the shopping cart ready for the purchase, and the post with this item still exists and gains new purchases.
