Facebook To Stop Selling Physical Merchandise

Facebook Gifts
Facebook has decided to stop selling physical merchandise from their online gift store.  The physical merchandise actually accounts for 20% of their sales.

Going forward, Facebook will focus primarily on selling digital codes and virtual currency along with the Facebook Card.  The Facebook Card will be a reusable gift card that can be used at real-world retailers like Jamba Juice, Olive Garden, Target, etc.

Facebook Gifts is not expected to be a large source of the company’s income, at least in the first year.  Facebook will be able to save money by eliminating physical goods because they would no longer have to deal with delivery and management.  Facebook’s new shopping services are expected to be rolled out entirely next week.

    It’s baffling that someone would support FB financially given that they’re in bed with the NSA and sell your privacy to whoever they can, especially when there are much better gifting services out there like zPerfect Gift (www.zperfectgift.com). Here are just a few of the benefits we offer over FB:

    1. You can do group gifts and not just individual gifts
    2. The gift recipient selects the gift card so they get exactly what they want
    3. We support FB and non-FB users (cross platform)
    4. We’re more secure since we don’t save your credit card info. When (not if) your FB account gets hacked, then the thieves will be able to start their Christmas shopping early
    5. The list goes on too and our service is completely free

    So don’t support Big Brother. Send a message by signing up for our free service today. There’s no cost and no obligation. So support zPerfect Gift since we provide a much better service, won’t sell your info, aren’t sleeping with the NSA, and are more concerned about our users rather than shareholders.
