Ajax add to cart buttons will break continuity in your Social Commerce shop, as the resulting View Cart link cannot receive the correct URL suffix. If you need this enabled for your main site, disable Add to Cart buttons for the shop view in the Social Commerce options.

Payments will always take place in a new tab. This is a combination of Facebook policy and Paypal/Payment provider policy. Facebook will not allow URLs that are not your domain to be displayed in the tab, and Paypal will not allow itself to be iFramed. Other payment providers may have similar rules. The Return link in Paypal is also not able to return people to your page tab – you can choose to either set it to return to your Facebook URL, or to your website url.
