SocialCart is an innovative distributed social ecommerce platform.
The free app helps easily promote millions of products using Twitter and Facebook. SocialCart enables merchants to extend product sales to social networking sites through tens of thousands of social store installs. With just a few clicks, users can set up shopping carts that allow products to be promoted directly to friends and family within the welcoming confines of Facebook, Twitter, blogs or any other social media page. Users can comfortably purchase directly without leaving the website or adding more clicks to the process.
Social networkers receive commission when products are purchased through their storefront or a storefront they have referred.
SocialCart is 100% free for vendors and networkers. The platform charges a percentage of sales and pays out a percentage to networkers on a pay-per-sale basis.
The networker side of the application is integrated with a Facebook app, Twitter app and other social media channels used to spread viral promotions. In the backend, vendors have a feature-rich dashboard for managing inventory, networkers, resellers, staff and orders. This was developed using a modified Armia MVC framework on a distributed server cluster. A large amount of user transactions and data from tens of thousands of users (and millions of shares) were managed using Hadoop implementation and dedicated analytics servers.
