Does anybody know how to add an app for selling items on Facebook.

I have had a company calling me all day today to try and get me to have an app on Facebook for selling stuff. I have attached the links they sent me for someone to have a look at what I mean, I would think this is possible to do myself without the means of paying £199.

Here are the links

Aha, they have used a Facebook app to embed an iframe of an online shop site... it should be possible to do this with any online shop site by creating a suitable Facebook application to do so, although, knowing Facebook, it's probably not especially straightforward (it always takes me a while to get my head around the way that Facebook tend to do things)...

Ah well, it looks like they've just got a fairly generic PHP-based shopping cart system which they have integrated with a Facebook app... what are their ongoing charges incidentally? Is the £199 just a setup charge?

It would seem silly to miss the chance of coding something similar which could be offered for less money and no hard sell...

Somewhat odd spelling of the company's name too... "Buegle"... as in "Bugle" (the musical instrument)... but the TV presenter Michael Buerk's name was always pronounced like "burk" - meaning that the pronunciation of that company's name would probably be more akin to "burgle" rather than "bugle"...

I have emailed them and told them I am not bothered, they said it was £199 and that was it
