Top 50 Facebook Stores, Top 20 Facebook Store Solutions

Want to know who’s doing what, and with which technology partner in the fabulous world of f-commerce?

Then look no further.

Here are the top (most liked) 50 e-commerce enabled Facebook pages and the store solutions they are using – as captured by f-commerce consultant Steven Hall, from 150 hours of sleuthing with his research team (and then a little editing from us, adding in some omissions).

All in all, it’s very a mixed bag that compares apples with pears in the Facebook world of social commerce. Some of these f-stores are basically no more than glorified banner ads linking to product pages on external websites – whilst others are fully fledged stores that handle transactions within the Facebook environment.

But the list is still a useful reference  resource – since browsing through it you’ll get an clear idea of what is currently being deployed in terms of f-commerce today.

Of course, it’d be nice to list the f-stores by sales – but the world is currently not that nice, and we have no access to that data – so the list is ranked by page ‘likes’.

 

20 Leading* F-Commerce Software Solution Providers

* Powering f-stores on Facebook pages with 100K+ likes (size, isn’t everything  – we know – and we’re compiling a full directory, including new solution providers). But do let us know if we’ve missed any f-commerce software being used on pages with 100K+ likes.

* By number of page “likes” (E&OE) – list expanded beyond top 50 as updates are received

A word of warning. Do take these lists as an indicative snapshot of the f-commerce market, not an accurate representation of it – number of likes is unlikey to be a good proxy for store sales, and there are certainly many omissions (we’ve added some – let us know what we’ve missed/got wrong).

But kudos to Steve for putting the original list together – his PDF can be downloaded here (no embedded links alas or data on page/store popularity – but we’ve added these for you in the list below).

Again, let us know of any popular e-commerce enabled pages that should appear in the list, any errors, or missing data (marked with a ?).

Given these caveats – the list of f-commerce software providers below is probably more useful than the list of stores themselves – which are in a state of, to put it politely, flux (Facebook is making big changes to how f-stores are implemented (no tabs, just app menu, iFrames not FBML – new dimensions etc), so many stores look a mess right now: This evening the much vaunted ASOS store is the wrong size and squeezing down the sidebar…  Normality should be restored soon.

But for now, this list does give an interesting overview of the early movers and shakers in f-commerce, a feel for what’s possible, and insight into the sectors that are trailblazing with this nascent technology (music, sport, TV and film…).

    Good article, interesting list. Now – is anyone actually selling stuff on Facebook? From my humble vantage point, there is a lot of shiny object chasing, I haven’t seen anyone share any meaningful sales number on their F-Commerce initiatives.

    Alvenda, who provides of f-commerce solutions for companies like 1-800 Flowers, Hallmark, Delta, Land’s End and Best Buy reached a daily sales record in December of $100K sales total for al the stores they manage. That’s less than $3 million total aggregate sales per month across all their clients.

    It is fine, as long as brands approach F-Commerce as an experiment – business model that has not been proven yet. Right?

    To answer the question of whether facebook stores are actually working for the businesses using them … shopping on facebook is indeed very new which some recent research from shoppercentric indicating that 6% of people have purchased from a facebook store, this will change markedly over the next 12 months or so. Not least because most people ‘like’ a business page (68% accroding to tresearch by compete.com) to find out about products, promotions and discounts. In our opinion, given so much time is spent on facebook that it is a logical step for people to want to take up thje offers and dicounts available without leaving facebook. This short video includes facts and figures on shopping on facebook as well as some case studies of large and small businesses delivering sales. http://bit.ly/why_open_a_store_on_facebook.

    Hi,

    One question – which one will let you put items into your cart and let you keep these till you go to check out? Most of these dont! No item is actually yours and someone can still buy it while it is in your shopping cart. I work in the preloved business and sell mostly one-offs which are all listed at a particular time each week. This means that it is a feeding frenzy and every customer is going for the same items (which I dont have multiples off). So, how dissapointingis is it that when you reach check out you realise that someone else has bought half your cart? Help!!

    Excellent article and very helpful for people / businesses looking for social-commerce options esp with Facebook. Facebook has become crowd puller and hence all businesses want their presence on Facebook. Going one step ahead, rather than just making your business presence feel on Facebook, its much better to actually engage customer on Facebook by selling directly to them.

    I would like to request the author of this article to also consider adding http://www.RetailEMall.com which is India’s first and fast becoming preferred facebook-commerce platform for businesses. Here is the link which explains about facebook store option on RetailEMall – http://retailemall.com/intro/social-commerce/

    I’ve read articles arguing that f-commerce is a fad, just like how people argued that Facebook was a fad. In my humble opinion, Facebook commerce is here to stay, just that the model is taking its shape over time, we just have to wait and see. I’m not sure about how people in the states and Europe actually make money selling on Facebook, to what I see in some Asian countries this is something big, just that the way they’re doing it is a bit old school, it only take a really useful software to tackle this big group of active sellers on Facebook.

Plus if you want to sell from any website or blog securely with copying and pasting a snippet of code you should check out http://www.Selz.com and add this to the list. Its very easily and quick. Requires no setup. Integrates with Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. It also has a free facebook store app. No upfront costs or monthly charges, it only charges a flat fee per sale.
