Aeropostale Jumps Into the F-Commerce Game

NYC-based apparel retailer Aéropostale, Inc. has launched a fully integrated Facebook Store, powered by Usablenet’s technology platform, that combines shopping and social media and extends full e-commerce functionality to the Aéropostale Facebook community. In addition to being able to purchase from among Aéropostale’s entire inventory, the integrated Facebook e-commerce store allows users to easily "like" and share items and purchases with their Facebook network - leveraging the viral nature of Facebook’s news feed.

“Aéropostale has 5 million Facebook fans that are engaged and connected to our brand,” says Scott Birnbaum, senior vice president of marketing and e-commerce. “The next logical step is to give them the opportunity to shop while in this environment.”

Developed by Aéropostale in partnership with leading mobile technology company Usablenet, consumers can use the Aéropostale Facebook store to search through a "shop" tab, "like" and "share" with their friends, review products and complete transactions all while staying on Facebook.

"For brands to succeed in this new and rapidly evolving multichannel shopping environment, they must engage customers wherever they are," says Usablenet CEO Nick Taylor. "With the launch of its fully integrated Facebook store, as well as native applications for the top mobile operating systems, Aéropostale is demonstrating its strong commitment to delivering the best digital shopping experience for all consumers." 

Continuing to strengthen its relationship with its consumers, Aéropostale has launched an Android mobile application and will introduce one for iPhone users in the coming weeks. The company has also recently unveiled an HTML5 upgrade to its optimized mobile site through the Usablenet Mobile 2.0 platform that delivers a rich, app-like experience in the mobile browser environment.

Online sales and marketing vehicles are one of the most important channels fashion has for engaging with customers, but optimizing the value of your electronic interactions can be a complex undertaking. Front-end websites must be user-friendly and smart, but just as critical is tight integration to the back office systems used to produce, manage, and control the products you sell. If you cannot create an online platform that delivers across all fronts, you’re missing critical opportunities to engage with customers, increase sales, and extend your market reach across global time zones. Read this White Paper – authored by Bob McKee, Infor Industry Strategy Director, where he will share insights into the eCommerce market and just how Fashion companies can deliver on a 24/7 sales economy.
