Greetings once again!!

Last time we had a guided post on how to use the Twitter app for Facebook.
Hope you have tried it and it didn’t prove to be a hassle.

Yet again, we have something informational for you, which would help you socially. This time it is about the benefits you can reap out of the e-cart app from Facebook.

Nowadays, e-carts have an important role to play in the online shopping world. Everyone does have it and many are using it. Are you one of them? If yes, then this app from Facebook can come in handy for you.

Scraping the historical thoughts, let us brief you about the main benefit you can get out of this app. You can display your online shopping cart items on your Facebook fan page. All you need to do is provide product details to create a mini cart on the fan page.

Cool, isn’t it?

Here are the steps you can follow to get benefits out of the e-cart app.

Firstly, click the ‘Install’ button in the ‘E-Cart’ section, after you log onto your Facebook account.

Then, from the drop down list in the ‘E-Cart’ page choose the fan page in, wherein you would like to install the application. Once you are done with it, click on ‘E-Cart’ and sit back. You have successfully added the E-Cart application to your fan page.

Configuration might seem to be a hassle, but we assure you that you’d get it right in the first go. To do this, go to the E-Cart tab and click ‘Configure E-Cart on this tab’.

Enter your basic details, such as full name, email id and phone number, and then enter cart name and select the number of items to be displayed. Then you have to click on the ‘Next’ button to proceed selecting items.

Here, you need to be careful as the app requires you to enter item details such as Name, price, product URL & description for all the items. However, you even need to upload product image for each item.

Next, click ‘Save and Continue’ to check your newly installed application. You’d see the items being listed in the E-Cart tab.

It’s done! Here is how it looks –

Once the links are created, you can click on them to verify that it directs you to the product page on the website. If you have followed the steps properly, you would have a smile on your face as your e-cart app is ready to pull in potential online customers.

To make sure that your fans and friends get to know about it, you can send page invitations on Facebook by clicking the ‘Send Page Invitation’ button on the top right-hand corner of the tab.

We note that there is a possibility that you might want to make a few changes in the item details at a future stage. To make changes, you have to click on the ‘Edit Settings’ link in the tab. Only the admin can see this option and make the necessary changes. Once changes are made, click on the ‘Save and continue’ button to go back to your fan page.

Now, that you have installed the e-cart app for Facebook Page, sit back and enjoy its benefits.
