Market Press: Post to Facebook on Purchase?

Hi Guys,

I am looking for a way for when a user buys a product from the store, it posts a status update announcing that they have done this, with a link to the store. Is this doable?

    I’d +1 this idea as well. It should include an option though for the purchaser to opt out of having it posted. Reason being if they purchase something that’s going to be a surprise or they don’t want it publicly posted there should be an option (could be really small).

    Another idea I had (but haven’t had time to push it further) is if the client posts a link to their FB page about their purchase they could get discount points for future purchases. This option would not only motivate the client to return but to recommend to their friends as well

    Joe – I think the thing to do is a generic fb post plugin and then build options into other plugins that hook into it with different actions per plugin that make sense for that plugin. I think there’s overlap with the new fb like to pay…


    mp -> on sale post

    fundraising -> on contribute post

    membership -> on join post

    Other things:

    – way to track who’s allowing it to post for rewards, coupons, etc..,

    – post to page or profile

    I’ll give this more thought and post later…

Thank NAME, for their help.
