Our Customers Say…
Obox Social Commerce has made it really easy for my company to build and integrate an eCommerce platform right into Facebook. Love it!”
- Jason Bagely
With an extensive and easy to use Control Panel you can begin customizing Social Commerce. You can upload your own logo, setup the built-in featured slider and include your very own shop introduction. All of which are visible on Facebook.
Decide what you’d like to show on the homepage of your Facebook Store and display either your Most Recent Products, Featured Products or specific Product Categories.
Once you’ve chosen that, choose between whether you’d like to show 4, 8 or 12 products on your homepage.
Even More Customization:
Adding to the above, with Social Commerce you can add Social Sharing to your products, include your own custom sidebar text (using HTML) and go super customized by adding in your own Custom CSS.
Social Commerce’s Design
The design of Social Commerce is one of its best bits. With a responsive/fluid layout, it means that if Facebook change the dimensions of the fan page your Facebook shop will simply adjust without breaking the layout.
We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure the design details of Social Commerce sit just right with a Facebook user. The design doesn’t alienate customers and a lot of the design iterations have happened to make sure it is in-keeping with Facebook to make sure it looks right at home.
The Super-Easy Setup
The one area we know which can be daunting for users is the setup. So we’ve made it super easy. We’ve even created a short video explaining the setup in fill so you can follow it as you get Social Commerce up and running.
Once Social Commerce is up and running on your WordPress eCommerce store, from that point you can get automatic updates of the plugin via your WordPress dashboard.
