Since Socialhead has joined forces with Facebook as Official Marketing Partner, we have created seamless Facebook Shop onboarding experiences for worldwide merchants through our app – Socialshop.
With thousands of feeds successfully synced from Shopify to Facebook Shop & Google Shopping as well as over 10,000 current users, we now continue to launch a brand new version of ‘Socialshop – Version 1.7’.
In this version, we offer more new features to further simplify and improve user experiences. In addition, we want to provide our valued merchants all the tools they need to sell even better on Facebook Shop and Google Shopping through Socialshop V1.7.
Let’s check out what’s new in this version.
Socialshop V1.7 – Enhanced Latest Features For Further Optimization
Socialshop V1.7 will have 3 tabs instead of 2 like the former version: Feed Center, Product Source, Sources Setting. With most user interfaces and user experiences are improved, the new version of Socialshop will be much easier to use.
Moreover, as we already revealed, Socialshop V1.7 will offer more new features that are surely useful for merchants.
Feed Center Enhanced
Brand New Create Feed Flow
Socialshop now provides users new flow to create a feed and sync products from Shopify to Facebook Shop & Google Shopping. The flow will be much easier to use and clearer to overview feed info.
This feature allows users to include only specific products in the feed instead of all products like before.
To do that, you must enable the function and set conditions for your feed. You can add several conditions; and for each condition, you also can add several sub-conditions.
Generate Feed URLs
Each feed will have a URL generated after you create and sync products from Shopify to Facebook Shop or Google Shopping.
There are 2 places where you can find your Feed URL:
- Feed URL on your feed.
- Click on your feed > Setting > Feed Info > Feed URL
With feed URLs, merchants can upload their feeds to multiple platforms just by copy & paste. It is easy, convenient, and time-saving for all merchants especially those who sell across multiple platforms besides Facebook and Google.
New Feed Setting Page
We built a new page for Feed Setting where you can check out your feed info as well as make some adjustments if necessary.
In Feed Setting, there are 3 sections where you can
- Facebook Catalog: You can go straight to your catalog in one click.
- Feed Info: Copy feed URL or plan your submit feed schedule.
- Product Filter: Include only specific products in the feed by setting conditions.
Product Source Enhanced
In Socialshop V1.7, we continue to improve user experiences by giving them 2 options for viewing products – Grid View & List View.
This is the familiar display of your product list like in the former version of Socialshop.
This is a new option we provide in Socialshop V1.7. With Grid View, we visualize the product list in an easier and simpler way for merchants to overview.
New Source Setting
Source Setting Tab is separated from Product Source to ease user experience. In Source Setting, you will find some general sections related to product sources from Shopify.
This is where you manage which Shopify product source is connected with your current account.
You are allowed to filter product sources by adding specific product collections or Exclude Product.
There are two ways to exclude products:
Exclude Specific Product
Merchants can exclude exactly the product they don’t want to sync from Shopify to Facebook Shop or Google Shopping.
Exclude Products by Rule
You can also exclude a wide range of products without manually picking up each product. All you need to do is to set rules.
According to the rules you set, the products which satisfy the conditions will be excluded from sources automatically.
We keep the Source Setting nearly unchanged except for one little feature Product Description Reference. You can choose to Use Default Description or Use SEO Description.
This is a completely new feature of Socialshop V1.7. We now enable merchants to select how often you want your inventory to be updated.
You can set Repeat with multiple options from every 3 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours, 8 hours, or 12 hours. You also can set time as well as the timezone.
Manually Sync Data Fields
Whenever you update meta field values, you totally can sync them from Shopify to our app manually by pressing this button.
Metafields such as SEO titles, SEO descriptions, Custom Labels, Age Group & others can be updated manually on our app through this button.
To sum up, we are so confident in Socialshop V1.7. By offering several new features as well as improving the existing functions and user experiences, we highly expect Socialshop to exceed merchants’ expectations in selling across platforms with our apps.
