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 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.
