announcing tabjuice TabJuice announces the most design configurable Facebook e-commerce solution. TabJuice becomes the first Facebook e-commerce solution allowing retailers to create customized and branded storefronts. SAN DIEGO – (June 7, 2011) – TabJuice, LLC announced the launch of their new social commerce application today. TabJuice provides a comprehensive, brand-able e-commerce solution for Facebook. TabJuice is an excellent solution for both those who cannot afford a costly webstore, as well as those who want to build upon their successful e-commerce business.

“Every company with a Facebook presence is constantly trying to find ways to transform fans into customers,” states Dylan Whitman, Founder of TabJuice, “And, in the e-commerce world, there is immense focus on reducing the number of steps – or clicks – a consumer must take in order to make a purchase. TabJuice’s groundbreaking technology allows sellers to offer a branded shopping experience directly on their Facebook Page, where they are already connecting with their fans.”

Facebook Pages have become a crucial marketing tool for all companies from large corporations to small independent sellers. However, the network itself currently has few options that take advantage of the all-in-tab shopping potential that Facebook’s new iFrame platform allows. TabJuice enables companies to bring their products to fans in their preferred environment, reducing the steps to create a sale and maximizing viral marketing and brand exposure potential. To service those that already have existing sites and e-commerce solutions, TabJuice makes integration easy with their API. Two stores, two opportunities for purchase, yet all managed from the admin panel of their choice.
