Want to sell online? Try Facebook...

A very interesting idea was sent to me this week. A shopping cart for facebook. A facebook application that you can literally add to your profile or possibly even your fan page. It lets you sell directly through facebook, without having to send people back to your site.

I think this could be a really good idea for some people and it brings more and more of a person-to-person commercial element on the site. It looks quite good and the little test drive I gave it demonstrated it was quite workable. It was also developed in Ireland, which I think is also cool.

We have quite a few B2C clients that I'm hoping will be able to make good use of this. It also looks quite good for Charities who will be able to take donations straight from their followers. I'd also love to know what other people think. You can find the app here
