How to add the widget Mini-Store to a Facebook fan page

(Question # 230)
If you have not already done so, please sign in to access your Facebook account in order to be able to add the Mini-Store widget by following our tutorial.

This widget is an excellent way to create a community around a store using a theme, delivering news about novelties, product updates, etc.

Please follow the next steps to add the Mini-Store widget to your fan page:

Step 1 - Create your Fan Page


If you already own a Fan Page, skip to step 2. If, however, you do not have a fan page, it is necessary to create one first. Log on to your Facebook account and access the section of creating fan pages. Follow the instructions to personalise your fan page as you wish.

Step 2- Install the application “T-Shirt Store”


Once you have created your fan page you can install the application that enables the Mini-Store widget by clicking here. ("Add to my Fans page")

Now, you have to “associate” your Fans Page to your own Tostadora.co.uk store, in order to replace this test store.

Click on the Fans Page where you want to add your T-Shirt Store. The Fans Pages can be found on the left side menu of Facebook, either under "Favourites" or in your list of "Pages".
Click on SETTINGS on top of your page.
