By Konstantin Molchanov (CS-Cart team), Monday, February 3rd, 2014 in Articles, News and announcements


Today we’d like to present our latest product, which introduces a whole new expansion area for the CS-Cart software—CS-Cart Facebook App.

CS-Cart Facebook App allows you to build your existing CS-Cart or Multi-Vendor storefront right into a Facebook page with a simple copy and paste.

The app works similarly to the CS-Cart Widget Mode; you just copy a few lines of code, paste them on the app page, and specify the Facebook page where you want the store embedded. Easy as pie!

Your store will immediately appear on the specified Facebook page as a new app, ready to serve customers:

Your Unique Facebook Storefront

Your Facebook storefront look is entirely in your hands. Use the layout editor in your CS-Cart admin panel to arrange blocks of your storefront, and use the theme editor to change its visual style.

CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.1.1 ships with a built-in Facebook style for the storefront theme that will let your store perfectly blend in with the social network’s design:

Important! Only CS-Cart / Multi-Vendor 4.1.1 and above can work with CS-Cart Facebook App. Also, your storefront must be accessible via HTTPS due to the Facebook regulations.
