'Commerce' recently announced the release of its new 'BUY NOW' platform, which allows brands to sell products directly through social posts. Although many brands use social media to promote their products, consumers cannot directly purchase the items they see without switching to an eCommerce or payment gateway provider first. The new BUY NOW platform provides a new way for brands to directly connect their online stores to social environments.

The BUY NOW platform allows brands to add interactive buttons to social posts online. These BUY NOW buttons allows companies to sell their products directly to consumers without having to reroute them to a different webpage. The idea behind the service is to simplify the value chain for merchants by helping brands integrate their online stores into social channels. As Commerce founder John Wantz explains, "Empowering brands to sell products directly from their online stores in social posts is the future of retail."

The new service is beneficial for both brands and their customers as it allows consumers to purchase items simply by clicking on a social post. The ease of the buying process demonstrates how social media can be a tool for streamlining eCommerce.
