Penang, Saturday, 24 Aug 2013: Instapps is the first made-in-Malaysia Facebook commerce solution application that allows selling-on-the-go from your smart phone.
The new improved Instapps 3.0 with mobile capability, recently launched, helps individual sellers and businesses to set up online storefront within their Facebook page. Once set up and published, Instapps Store appears as a tab on the Facebook page.
Instapps started humble three years ago as an application to build Facebook landing pages, and had quickly evolved into a Facebook commerce or f-commerce solution application.
They secured an initial RM400,000 seed money late last year to fully develop Instapps. Version 3.0 was launched on August 19, in English, with plan to roll out more supported languages in the future, Gan added.
“We have hundreds of existing users who receive free upgrade to Instapps 3.0, and I expect some 100 new sign-ups monthly with this latest version.”
For those who want to test drive the system, there is a free version for you to display and sell up to eight products via your own Instapps Facebook Store. There are three other packages for monthly or annual subscription that allow up to five stores and unlimited product uploads.
Since the beta launch, Instapps has received online reviews on Yahoo News http://news.yahoo.com/instapps-builds-stores-merchants-facebook-041125280.html and TechInAsia http://www.techinasia.com/instapps-builds-stores-merchants-facebook/.
