NearSt has launched a one-click integration that will enable tens of thousands of high street retailers to make in-store products discoverable in Facebook using only their existing inventory system.
The innovation comes at a time of rapid growth for social commerce, with Facebook reporting that 63% of their users visit the platform for shopping and related activities. Thanks to our direct integration with Facebook, brick-and-mortar retailers can now capture a meaningful share of this growing trend.
Tom Fleming, owner of the Book and Card Centre said of the integration: “It has been difficult to gain an online presence but with NearSt combining our Point of Sale and providing live stock information on Facebook has really helped to keep people informed. It also means that wherever people see us, our stock information is accurate.”
How does it work?
NearSt automatically sets up your Facebook Shop and creates product profiles using only the barcodes in your existing EPOS or inventory management system.
So existing and new customers can discover what you stock on Facebook and come into your shop to buy.
