Facebook Friday App Review – TabJuice

TabJuice is a free application that helps you monetise your Facebook fan base by adding an ecommerce platform to your Facebook page. It’s highly intuitive interface means you can have your very own custom branded Facebook store up and running in no time at all.

You don’t actually need an existing online store to use TabJuice since everything needed for eCommerce is built in. There’s functionality to run special offers for specific dates/times, plus there are options to allow fans to leave comments and reviews on your products/services.

One of the best things about TabJuice is that it’s fully compatible with iFrames, which allows for greater flexibility in page design. Another good thing about TabJuice is that it doesn’t publicise connections between storefronts and personal profiles. This is great if you’re a one-man-band and don’t want to give that fact away.

All-in-all, TabJuice is an ideal solution for anyone who wants to easily integrate a storefront into their Facebook page.

Facebook Friday App Review – Storefront

Storefront is another solution that lets you share products on your Facebook page.

Like similar tools, storefront lets you assign categories to your products; however its most unique feature is the ability to add customer banners to your page. This is really good for branding and making the most of highly visual products.

One of the tools major drawbacks when you compare it to other ecommerce services such as Payvment, is that it doesn’t allow users to add products to the basket in one storefront and checkout on another.

With free solutions such as Payvment available, it does call into question whether Storefront is actually worth $9.95 per month. If you’re looking to emphasise your brand first and foremost, then perhaps it is.
