The New York City based startup Goodsie is an online retail solution that comes from HiiDef, the creators of Flavors.me. Goodsie offers an easy-to-use interface that provides users with beautiful-looking online stores with personalization options galore, no coding required. It’s an ideal solution for anyone wanting to set up a branded storefront on the web.
Today, Goodsie is launching Facebook Storefronts so store owners looking to integrate social can now have an easy, low-cost way to take advantage of Facebook and its 800 million users. When you integrate your Goodsie store into Facebook, each product from your store (on Facebook) will have a Like button attached to it. When you create product groupings, Goodsie allows you to have a dedicated Facebook Page for each set. The entire integration process is automated and is said to require just a few clicks for Goodsie retailers to get started.
“Many Goodsie retailers have spent considerable time establishing a popular presence on Facebook. Adding commerce to their Facebook page has become a strategic imperative for them because it allows them to increase fan engagement and instantly convert browsers into buyers.”
-Goodsie CEO Jonathan Marcus

Goodsie also launched Native Credit Card Payments today through partnerships with Braintree and Authorize.net. Now, store owners can accept payments directly from all major credit card holders. Goodsie charges a flat rate of $15 per month for unlimited product uploads, the option for a custom domain name, coupons and more.
To date, Goodsie has raised $3.3 million in funding with leading investor Alex Zubillaga of the New York-based Rhone Group and additional angel investors including Dave Morin of Path, David Tisch of TechStars, Vimeo founder Jake Lodwick, Joey Levin of Mindspark, and John Foley of Barnes & Noble.
