Based on analysis of over two years of data from sellers, Payvment Social IQ technology delivers a daily set of customized actions to help sellers who are new to social commerce drive rapid fan base growth, traffic, and sales, says the company.
This technology is embedded in a new release of Payvment’s Social Commerce Dashboard, which has an added set of tools to monitor key social commerce metrics and track the impact of new campaigns.

According to the company, its Social IQ also makes it easy for sellers to try new social marketing tactics — such as running a Twitter promotion or offering a “Like” discount for fans while being able to measure how those actions improve product discovery and sales.
When a seller opens the Payvment Social Commerce Dashboard, they will now be greeted with a Social IQ “score”, which provides a quick benchmark of how effectively the seller is promoting their store and generating engagement relative to other Payvment sellers.
