  • Patent number: 10332170
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods for providing a buy option to social networking communications. The method includes communicating with a social networking site that posts text, images and/or videos from posting entities to receiving entities. The posting can have data that points to a product database. The data is processed to determine whether there is a sale-related intent with the posting. The data is used to access a database of products for sale from a merchant. When the sale-related intent applies, the system transmits the posting through the social networking site with a buy button associated with the transmission such that a recipient can easily purchase a product.

  • Patent number: 10121186
    Abstract: Disclosed is an approach for managing a transition from the first site to a destination merchant site and a deep link state. A method aspect includes receiving an interaction from a user with an object associated with an advertisement for a product, the advertisement being presented via a first site presented within a browser, transitioning the user from the first site to a destination merchant site in a deep link state. The transitioning process includes retrieving data from the browser and using the data from the browser to enable the user to transition from the first site to the destination merchant site in the deep link state. The deep link state enables the user to purchase the product via an interaction with a purchase object without manually entering payment account data or user address data. The deep link state can enable a “one click” purchasing experience after the transition from the first site.

  • Patent number: 9922380
    Abstract: Disclosed is an approach for providing a payment capability in a dialog. The method includes receiving, via a messenger application and as part of a dialog between a site and a user, an input from the user, presenting user text associated with the input in the messenger application, responding, as part of the dialog and by the site, to the input with a response, presenting response text associated with the spoken response in the messenger application, and identifying a product the user desires to purchase from the site.

  • Patent number: 9922381
    Abstract: Disclosed is an approach for coordinating via two browser APIs with a payment service. The method includes receiving input from a user indicating a desire to purchase a product from a merchant site, and receiving, based on the input, at a browser and via a first API between the browser and the merchant site, a payment request from the merchant site for payment data.

The method includes receiving a posting of an item through a social networking site, wherein the social networking site receives and transmits posted items from a posting entity to receiving entities. When the posting references a product in a product database, the posting includes a payment process initiation object. Clicking on object transitions the user to a dialog application that engages in a dialog between the user and the merchant. The dialog application includes payment processing capabilities such that the user can complete the purchase via the dialog application.

  • Patent number: 9430790
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods for providing a buy option to social networking communications. The method includes receiving a posting of text, an image or a video through Facebook, identifying data associated with the posting and determining whether the data identifies a product within a database of products for sale from the posting entity. When the determination indicates that there is no reference to the product in the product database, the method includes transmitting the posting through Facebook without a buy now button. When the determination indicates that the posting references the product, thus indicating a sale-related intent, the method includes transmitting the posting through Facebook with a buy option, receiving a purchase interaction associated with the buy option and processing a purchase of the product.

  • Patent number: 9430794
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and computer-readable storage devices for unifying access to multiple websites or other information sources such that the user only needs to visit one location, and utilize one input search field. That one location can be a website, an application, a search bar in a web browser, etc. Rather than navigating to a website to perform a search in the context of that website, a user can instead navigate to or open a generalized search field. Via the generalized search field, the system can implicitly or explicitly process and analyze the input from the user and the resulting context. Thus, the user goes to the website second, after the search is entered. This approach reduces the number of interactions, starting when the user opens a browser or application, to get to a purchase or a search result.
