Hi there

 

I've just set up an ecommerce store and i'd like to add 'share to Facebook/Instagram/Twitter' buttons to the products. 

 

Do I need an app for this or am I being a bit thick?

 

Thanks!

Hey, @youreallygotme!

 

Sunny from the Shopify Guru team and I would be happy to lend a hand with this. After visiting your site and navigating to a random product page, I can see that you actually already have social sharing set up!

If someone were to click on either of those social icons, it would redirect them to share this product on Facebook or Twitter, which would look like this:

If you are looking for something a little bit different, definitely let me know and I would be happy to offer alternative suggestions. Also, feel free to have a look at our many social sharing apps on our App Store here for something more customizable.

 

For those who came here looking to add this feature to your own shops, this can be enabled by going to Online Store > Themes > Customize > Navigate to Product pages > Enable sharing for products. Check out this quick video demonstration to follow along. Additionally, if you want to adjust what social channels to share on, head over to Online Store > Themes > Customize > Theme Settings > Social media > Scroll all the way down till you see Social Sharing Options > Enable/Disable > Save. Feel free to check out a video demonstration here. Keep in mind that these instructions may vary depending on which theme you are using. If you are having trouble getting this to work for your shop, let me know what theme you're using and I would be happy to help!

 

Does this help clear up any confusion? 

 

Cheers!

Hi, @albaastore!

 

Welcome to the thread! To start, what theme are you using? I can do some testing on my end to see how we can enable product social sharing for your theme, as I mentioned in my first reply that each theme can be slightly different. 

 

For your social icons, if you are only looking to link Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, simply leave the other fields blank for social channels that you don't want to appear. See the screenshot below for an example:

Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Shopfy,

 

I am able to add social buttons like Instagram, FB, etc on footer from theme settings. However  I would like to share the product information via social buttons like FB, Instagram etc in PDP. Currently I am using Turbo theme for my shop and it has the feature for social sharing in PDP using FB, twitter etc. But I cannot see how to share via instagram. 

So the question is can you help me in displaying the instagram button in PDP so that I can share the product info in Instagram account. Is this possible for Instagram account. Thanks for your help.

 

Regards

Sumita
