Social Commerce: Setup Your Facebook Tab

Click on Social Commerce in your WordPress admin menu to view the Facebook Page Tab Setup checklist. Before you can add your page to Facebook, you must have a clear check on all items:

Step 1 – Make sure WooCommerce is active and correctly configured
Step 2 – Enable SSL for your store
Step 3 – Make sure your shop is live and accessible
It’s  important that your store is live – not on a testing url like http://localhost, or on temporary test location – or it will not be accessible by Facebook more info .
Make sure the generated URL in this step displays your Social Commerce URL, and can be loaded with an https:// prefix without errors.

Once all is a go, simply click the Put Your Store Live On Facebook to begin.

  1. You will be brought to Facebook and asked to login, after which an Add Page Tab dialog will appear.
  2. Select your desired page from the Facebook Pages drop-down and click Add Page Tab
