News : Salesforce Launches Buy Button for Community Cloud
San Francisco, CA, USA, Aug. 13, 2015 -- Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], a CRM company, announced that Community Cloud is now enabling companies to embed a buy button into online communities. The new e-commerce capabilities enable communities of customers to discover, research, discuss and buy products in a single location while introducing a new sales channel for companies.
Today, a range of consumer-driven services like Facebook, TripAdvisor, Pinterest and Twitter are helping brands drive revenue by allowing people to "click to buy" directly within the community. However, companies that want to offer this same type of commerce experience within their own communities have struggled to deliver it because there was not a trusted and easy way to combine transactions with their online communities.
"Our goal is to make it easier for our customers to grow their businesses and today we're the first enterprise solution that enables buy buttons for any online community," said Nasi Jazayeri, executive vice president of Community Cloud, Salesforce. "Now any company can deliver the same click-to-buy experience as popular consumer services and grow their businesses with social commerce."
