EasyAsk eCommerce Facebook Edition Allows E-Retailers to Fully Merchandise and Sell Directly Inside Facebook
INTERNET RETAILER CONFERENCE AND EXPO, SAN DIEGO, CA—June 14, 2011—EasyAsk today announced at the Internet Retailer Conference Expo, EasyAsk eCommerce Facebook Edition, a new version of the company’s ground-breaking natural language e-commerce software integrated with Facebook, the world’s leading social media site. The new product brings the industry-leading customer conversion power of EasyAsk eCommerce Edition to Facebook, allowing Facebook users to search and purchase products without having to leave the friendly confines of Facebook.
With over 150 million users in the U.S. and 500 million worldwide, Facebook has tremendous potential for e-retailers.

EasyAsk also integrates with the e-retailer’s back-end e-commerce services, such as shopping carts to speed customer purchases. The entire solution resides inside Facebook, giving users the comfort and speed of shopping within Facebook environment.
“The proven customer conversion power of EasyAsk will help e-retailers truly monetize their Facebook initiatives,” said Craig Bassin, CEO at EasyAsk. “With this solution, EasyAsk stands alone as the only e-commerce search provider with a single integrated solution that covers e-commerce, mobile, Facebook and the cloud.
