Intuit Inc. (NASDAQ:INTU) has announced that they have launched an e-commerce platform today for companies to launch stores on Facebook. The Intuit SimpleStore service will automatically sync a merchant’s website and Facebook page by loading the inventory and enabling payments.
Business owners will be able to accept credit or debit card payments directly on Facebook. All of the transactions will be made through Intuit’s back-end. Intuit SimpleStore for Facebook will be available through Intuit’s websites.
The Intuit SimpleStore is facing stiff competition. For example Payvment, ShopIgniter, and BigCommerce are already doing the same thing as SimpleStore. To learn more about the Intuit e-commerce platform, visit http://www.intuit.com/ecommerce/create-your-online-store/.
