If you already have a shop on Blomming, the Blomming Storefront application allows you to integrate your Shop into a Facebook Pageof which you are an admin. This means that you can sell directly through the popular social network, where you are already in contact with your audience and build your brand identity, day by day. Let’s see how it works – it’s fast and easy!
1) Add the app to your Facebook Page
After creating your Blomming Shop and having uploaded some products, just go to your Dashboard and click on Publishing Options (in this section you will also find other important features about the integration of the Shop into your site or blog).
Below “Sell on Facebook” click on the green button Go: on the next screen you can select the Facebook Page you want amongst the available ones (that means those which you are an administrator and you have not yet installed the application). To confirm click on the button Add Page Tab.
You will be immediately returned to the Publishing Options page on your Blomming account, where you will see the confirmation of the Activation.>> If you were logged in your Blomming account or if you have not clicked on “Unlink”, the following step is not necessary.
2) Activate the connection with Blomming
Once in your own page, you will see the new app Shop with the chameleon icon at the top of the page. If you don’t see it, it’s probably hidden by the drop down menu: read here what to do. Now click on the Shop icon.
The connection with Blomming will be displayed. Login with your Blomming account. If you have a browsing session running on blomming.com this step is unnecessary and you can skip directly to the next step.
Then confirm the connection between your Blomming Shop and the Facebook Page. Well done! You will now see the page filled up with products from Blomming, and it will be automatically updated from time to time. The management of the shop is centrally from your Blomming.
Here is how the Facebook Page visitors see a Blomming Shop.
Page administrators which own a Blomming Shop will also see other management functions. By clicking on the picture or on the title of a product the relevant page will be displayed.
And when clicking Add to Cart this will appear at the top of the window. Another advantage: customers who pay with Paypal does not even have to leave the page, as explained here.
Now you can choose to customize the icon of the shop with the name and image of your choice.
Note: all the business apps on Facebook work only with Facebook Pages – that are different from Personal Profiles and Groups.
If you dont’t have a Facebook Page
A Page is a great way to promote your business, brand, product or community or other, and to do business in general: among the various benefits it is not subject to the famous limit of 5000 friends, which is typical of personal Profiles.
