Facebook, eBay and Amazon, what do they have in common?

1.35 billion Users per month use the Facebook application.

864 million users across the world use Facebook daily,

approximately 18% of living people on Earth have a user name on this social site.


In July 2014, Facebook announced after 10 years of consistent growth, the introduction of the “BUY” button. However, this is still in the test phase and only limited to top branded sellers to access and test this new sales channel.

Facebook have already closed a partnership with Stripe who is going to be the sole payment processor. For now Stripe is PayPal’s biggest competitor. Heard of Stripe? Stripe previously has had been linked with Twitter.

Facebook previously tried to move towards ecommerce but that failed. You may remember the credits feature (virtual currency) at the time when the ‘Farmville game’ had its glorious days.

If this trial is a success then we can expect that Facebook will be right up there with eBay and Amazon as the latest sales channel to sell your products.

Adlister is here to help !!!

We don’t want to be the ones to say “we told you so” but till all the hype goes away and this new feature is launched then let’s see how Ad-lister can help.


In our listing tool we have recently built a feature called Facebook &Twitter Integration and as the name implies it will integrate these two social media websites. In a single instance a product item can be posted on either social channel.

Until the new functionality is released this will simply redirect back to your eBay product for a sale. We will wait and see what features we could do to utilize the Facebook “Buy” button when it arrives.


If you don’t have a Facebook page yet then don’t panic we at JTi can create it for you and if you desire a customized design we can do that too for a small fee.


Be ahead of the game and offer other prospective buyers to engage with you on the number one social site Facebook.
