How To Create An Online Store On Facebook

How do you start selling online? It’s now becoming commonplace for consumers to shop on mobile commerce sites such as Facebook and Facebook Groups. With the recent¬†launch of Facebook Marketplaces, businesses and small-time sellers are attempting to find ways to drive sales through social media channels and messaging apps. Consumers and buyers asks questions on Facebook comments and chats, expecting a personalised experience from the sellers.

Even so, payments options for mobile commerce and conversational commerce are limited. Xfers Payment Link sits at the core of such conversational commerce. With Xfers Payment Link, businesses and sellers can send a link to its customers through their Facebook page. The customer then makes secured payments via credit card or bank transfer payment on Xfers.
