Social Store Released

Today we are pleased to announce we have released our newest feature "Social Store". The social store was conceived as a shopping cart solution but with one main difference. The ability for you to allow your website members to add and sell items. This feature expands the monetization opportunities for website owners and Spruz is proud to be the only social website platform to offer this type of feature. While there are many ecommerce solutions available on the internet, there is a lack of shopping systems where members of the site have the ability to sell or list items.

Top Features Include;

  • Allow you and your members to sell items via the Store
    • You decide if just you or your members can add and sell items direct from your websites. Set options to approve items added for additional level of control over your store.
  • Use the Social Store as a shopping cart, classifieds or e-delivery platform
    • With customizable options you can configure your store to as a place to sell items, ebooks or as a classifieds. Turn on and off payment options, item styles, e-delivery, location, stock number, etc in the settings area for this feature.
  • Customize Categories
    • Similar to the video, blog, discussions and other features, you can customize your categories and sub categories for items listed in your social store!
  • Geo Location Based Searching
    • By using the Advanced Social Store Search element you can allow buyers to search your store based on location.
  • Integrated with PayPal, store tracks payments as they post. Making it easy for buyers and sellers to keep track of purchases
    • The system uses PayPal for all payment processing, this allows your member to customize there own shipping and payment features. Paypal makes it easy to keep track of customer and their information.

This new feature is free for everyone to use and carries no additional fees. However we have restricted the number of items you can have in the store based on your plan. 10 items on free, 50 on our starter plan, 500 for plus customers and Unlimited on the unlimited plan.

To add this new feature on your site go to Manage Site > Your Site > Add Page or Feature and select Social Store from the list!

Like any new feature there will be bugs and issues, it is very important to report problems you may encounter via support ticket. DO NOT POST issues in comments!

We hope this new feature will bring added value to your website. This feature will be expanded upon over the coming months based on the needs of users like you so feel free to provide us with your feedback! Enjoy!
