The social network is becoming the shopping network: Facebook is now letting businesses sell items and services directly through their pages at no extra cost.
Facebook’s Shop section for Pages, which lists the items a particular business sells and allows general users to put in an offer for a product via Messenger, is being rolled out to merchants in “high-growth and emerging markets.” The countries set to receive the feature include Thailand, Brazil, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, India, Argentina, and Taiwan.
The Services section allows businesses to do exactly the same in regard to the services they provide. This particular function is currently only available to professional services providers, but will receive a general roll-out in the coming weeks, reportsVentureBeat. As you can see in the screenshots below, businesses can provide both photos and prices for the goods or services they sell.
