Social shopping could get costly for retailers
Now that it’s a possibility, allowing consumers to purchase goods directly through social media seems like a no brainer for retailers. But it doesn’t come free of cost.

And new tools are letting merchants sell goods directly through the site. Unfortunately, this method works best for companies that are already popular on the social net. And may not come cheap.
