The WooCommerce plug-in for WordPress websites creates a complete e-commerce option for sellers to quickly create a credible online website. According to a recent study by BuiltWith, WooCommerce is by far the most successful shopping cart option available on the market. However, in numerous recent discussions with WooCommerce sellers, it has been made apparent to us that they would like to leverage the significant amount of time that their buyers are spending on social media sites.
All it takes is standing in line for coffee in the morning to see everyone looking down to scroll their Facebook, Twitter or Snapchat feeds. Social Media Today provides an interesting infographic on the time users are spending on social media sites. In the case of Facebook, individuals are spending 35 minutes a day on average and this is growing. We believe that with the right approach this situation creates an opportunity for WooCommerce sellers to leverage their social presence to drive incremental sales from their existing clients and find new prospects via an integrated Facebook shop back to their WooCommerce site.
Why should you create a ShopTab Facebook Shop for your WooCommerce site?
- Your buyers are spending most of their time in social media sites, as noted above. You need to capture their attention inside of these social networks.
- You can easily manage all purchases through the existing WooCommerce admin.
- Facebook provides a high-quality desktop and mobile app experience to successfully merchandise products.
- Social awareness and sharing is a great way to create demand and drive impulse purchases.
- The Integration is simple and you can trial the option for free!
WooCommerce recently made integration of the existing store in ShopTab quick and simple. Almost all clients want to duplicate the products in their online store right into Facebook. WooCommerce recently update their import/export feed, email noted below about the update, to support the export of a file that can be immediately uploaded into ShopTab to create your catalog of products.
That link is available here – https://woocommerce.com/products/product-csv-import-suite/. The fields we need from the export are the product title, product description, price, category, URL to the product page and URL to the images for the product.
With the ShopTab account activated, the products loaded into the store and the appropriate promotion “Shop Now” buttons in place, you will be ready to sell. Your Fan Page will show the ability for your fans and their friends to begin the shopping process with one click. Additionally, ShopTab provides opportunities for you to promote your products to your news feed/timeline to make these buyers aware of your products.
We hope you’ll give this new option a try. We normally provide a 7-day free trial. Use the coupon code of “FBSHOP” during registration and get an additional 30 days for free.
