WP FB Commerce is a companion plugin to GetShopped's famous WP e-Commerce. Market featured products or your whole catalog on Facebook.
WP FB Commerce displays your storefront as a tab on a Facebook business page. You will register a URL pointing to your web server in the Facebook Developers utility at https://developers.facebook.com/apps
Click 'Create a New App' and follow the instructions. Many of the fields on the app registration form are optional. The most critical fields to fill in for our purposes are in the Page Tab section where you will enter a Page Tab Name, Page Tab URL, and Secure Page Tab URL. You must be able to host SSL secured / https pages for this to work properly.
You can find the URLs to record on the
Products -> FB Featured and
Settings -> WP FB Commerce pages. You have a choice of either displaying products from the default view of your WP e-Commerce product catalog or a select list of featured products set on the
Products -> FB Featured screen. The URLs include a query string parameter in the form of
?fbx=1 for the featured products list or
?fb=commerce for the default listing.
You can also create a tab featuring a single selected product. Take the page URL for that product as it is normally displayed on your website and add the query string
?fb=commerce to the end of the URL.
After saving the settings for your "app", click the link on the left hand sidebar to View App Profile Page.
From the profile page, click the link for
Add to My Page. Facebook will display a listing of all the pages you own or have editing rights to. Click the Add to Page button next to the page or pages you want this storefront view to appear on. Then navigate to your business page, and you should see the new tab displayed on the menu on the left side of the page.
If you are logged in as an administrator of the page, an 'Edit' link will be displayed at the bottom of the list of tabs (navigation links within the content for your page). This allows you to delete or rearrange the tabs. If you have a long list of tabs, you may need to click 'More' before the 'Edit' link will be displayed.
You can edit or rearrange the tabs.
Look for an additional menu item under Products titled FB Featured. You may select up to 20 products to be displayed as featured offers.
When a visitor first accesses the Facebook Page Tab containing your storefront, the query string at the end of the URL tells WordPress to display the Facebook theme. As the visitor continues to navigate through the product catalog, a PHP session variable tells WordPress to continue to display content with the Facebook theme.
