Three Social Media Sites 
Enables News Feed Commerce and Payments With One Comment; Adidas,

Chirpify for Facebook 
PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/13 --  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.
