As we all know, social media is here to stay. If you are not using it, you are missing out. ShopSite knows this and is continually updating to make ShopSite work in conjunction with social media. Two features now included in ShopSite …. allowing your customers to login to your store with their facebook login (requires ShopSite Pro) and having a page at your facebook account that IS your store.
First, you need a facebook account. You should make it a public account so anyone can access it. If you already have a personal facebook account, you can create a page that attaches to it that can be for your business. If you do not have a facebook or want a completely clean, new account, go here: https://www.facebook.com/business/build for instructions on setting it up.
For both features, you will want to be logged in to ShopSite and your Facebook account as administrator.
Facebook Connect The second feature is letting your customers sign into customer
registration with their facebook account, (http://www.shopsite.com/blog/2011/08/why-use-facebook-connect/ ). The instructions for setting this up
are here: http://www.shopsite.com/help/11.2/en-US/sc/pro/index.htm?page=/help/11.2/en-US/sc/pro/facebook.connect.html . In ShopSite you want to go to: Commerce Setup > Customer Registration> Configure. If you are using shared
security (meaning, you haven’t purchased your one secure certificate), you will
need to know the name of the server you are using. Contact your web host for this information, they can tell you want to use for App Domain (usually the server name, example: tan.secure-host.com) and the Site URL (usually the main secure space, example:
https://tan.secure-host.com). Once you have set all of this up you may need to tweak your custom customer registration template to add the feature.
In the olden days, there were only about 7 websafe fonts. This was because in order for a visitor to your site to see the font you used on your site, it had to reside on the device they were using. Thanks to google fonts, there is a free option to let you pick from hundreds of fonts. The fonts are stored with google so you don’t need to have it and neither does the visitor.
If your site is using a style sheet, the change to a new font is easy! If it does not, then it may take a little longer to incorporate the change, but shouldn’t be too bad. If this is something you wish to do to change the look of your site, just let us know.
