Unless you have an established merchant shop on major sites like eBay, selling things online can be a hassle. Ribbon aims to alleviate that stress with a simple, easy-to-set-up storefront that can be embedded across a variety of social networks.
For sellers, simply log in with Facebook or Twitter, or create a separate Ribbon account if you prefer. After that, you only need to enter a valid email address before you can start adding products. Each item you enter will get its own dedicated page that you can either link to directly, share on social networks, or embed directly on your own site.
Whenever customers encounter the "Buy Now" button, they only need to enter a credit card number and email address to purchase. The embedded widget lets them pay without even leaving the site they're on. No need to create a new account or stop what they're doing. Of course, Ribbon takes its own cut off the top: Five per cent plus 30 cents for each transaction. But, there are no monthly fees or charges for listing an item, which makes this very attractive for casual sellers. Check out the video above to see more.
