Chirpify for Facebook Launches; Platform Now Powering In-Stream Commerce on Top Three Social Media Sites

Enables News Feed Commerce and Payments With One Comment; Adidas, Portland Trailblazers, Owl City and Neon Trees First to Leverage Chirpify for Facebook

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - Mar 19, 2013) - Chirpify, the first platform for in-stream commerce on Twitter and Instagram, today announced it is expanding its platform by enabling commerce and payments with one comment in the news feed on Facebook. The company also announced that selective launch partners Adidas, the Portland Trailblazers, Major League Soccer's Portland Timbers, bands Owl City and Neon Trees, record label Victory Records and others are now using Chirpify to power in-stream commerce directly in the news feed on Facebook.

Chirpify for Facebook is the first and only way that businesses, non-profits and consumers can buy, sell, donate and raise funds directly in the news feed without ever leaving Facebook, turning comments into immediate in-stream payments and transactions. According to a recent study, 80 percent of American businesses have a presence on Facebook.

"By expanding Chirpify to the top three major social media sites, we've created the only social commerce platform that enables businesses to list and distribute products to each social media platform, and consumers to purchase in-stream on each without ever leaving," said Chirpify CEO Chris Teso. "We are excited that businesses like Adidas sought us out to develop frictionless commerce for Facebook."

Chirpify defines frictionless commerce as a one-step checkout process. With Chirpify for Facebook, there's no filling out credit card information or leaving Facebook to make a transaction. Just a simple comment.

How Chirpify for Facebook Works
Selling, fundraising or hosting giveaways with Chirpify on Facebook is easy. A listing is created in a Chirpify dashboard by inputting various information like item, dollar amount, digital or physical, and shipping time and price. Then the Facebook button just needs to be clicked to have the listing go live. The post will show up and work in both a consumer's and brand page's news feed.

Consumer members of Chirpify, can buy, donate or enter a giveaway on Facebook simply by commenting to a listing with "buy," "donate" or "gimme." When they do, Chirpify will make a payment happen automatically, and send a secure download or receipt via email. All transactions and data are stored for a consumer in their Chirpify dashboard.
