E-commerce company Shopify has launched a new app called Sello that allows businesses to build online stores. With Sello, you just snap a photo of the product that you want to sell, add a price and description, then you’re ready to go. You’ll be able to accept credit card and PayPal payments, and you can share your product listings on social networks. Sello is less about product discovery and more about creating those product listings and handling the purchases. Sello is available for iOS and Android. It’s a free app and there are no transaction fees (but you will have to pay for payment processing).
