You can make your tab say Shop, Buy Now, Search, or anything you’d like (with any image you’d like). You also have the ability to move the tab so it appears right under your cover photo.

  • Glad it helped. Feel free to use our FAQ’s or post any questions at support@shoptab.net for help on setting up or managing your Facebook Store.

  • I dont know how to deal with this. Seems Facebook made a new change in the editing of the Applications 🙁 I can’t edit the name. I did edit the older ones but when I add new ones or want to edit an existing one, I just can’t find where to edit 🙁

  • I just checked and was able to edit both old and new application names. I hope you are able to figure it out. Sorry we couldn’t help more. Are you trying to change the name on ShopTab or another application?

    how do I change the currency in my shop from US dollars to UK pounds if I use the ‘settings’ then click ‘edit business info’ I am not given any option to change currency…

  • It’s actually under the Settings tab then click on Store Design. It will be the first thing you see on that page.

  • It’s actually under the Settings tab then Store Design. It will be the first thing you see on that page. Just select your currency from the drop down box and hit update.

    I am trying to change the image that appears once you click on the tab itself. Any pointers? I can’t seem to find an option for that!

  • Alexis

    Just to be clear not that picture on the tab… the picture that appear once you are in the tab 🙂

  • Do you mean the banner that is on the top of each shop page? If so, you can change the banner under “Settings” and then “Store Design” in ShopTab’s admin. Does that help?

  • Alexis

    Thank you for the quick response. No, not the banner. So we have our photos tab, contact us tab, instagram tab, and then a unique tab that we named UFC. When you click on our UFC tab the picture that immediately pops up to represent that tab is really outdated and I want to switch it but there doesn’t seem to be an option for that when i follow the above instructions. Any ideas?

  • Can you send the link to that FB page or the actual tab URL?

  • Just changed my page over. 🙂

    Thank you So much dude 🙂

    Glad it helped.

    I wish it was this easy to add a custom tab to Facebook now. They changed it and it is not easy. I wan to add a tab that says buy a cheap X26 Taser for my non lethal self defense device company but it is ridiculously hard to do now.
