Want to add “Buy Now” buttons to your social media pages? Redirect users from an external source to your store cart? Don’t know how to add e-commerce functionality to an external website? With Buy Links, you can do all that with ease!
Since social networks like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter offer the best opportunities for inexpensive product promotion, with Buy Links you can go a step further and offer the user a chance to buy the product directly from there. This is a great option to increase traffic on your store and boost sales.
For each simple product on your store, you can find two types of links; a Buy Link and a Permalink.
The Permalink simply takes you to a page with product information and description, whereas the Buy Link adds the the product directly to the cart, and can redirect the user to the product page, cart page or checkout page.
For example, if you wish to redirect a customer browsing a product from your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter page to the cart on your store, all you have to do is copy the Buy Link of the product from your Jumpseller store to the respective sources as you can see below:
You can even adjust the redirect setting of the buy links by going to the Checkout section underneath Settings on your admin panel, which means that you control where the user is directed to after they click on the link. You can redirect them to the cart, to the checkout or they can stay on the same page.
It gets better! With service like bitly you have the chance to customize links for free. Which means you can reduce the length of the URL to make it simpler to add on social media. With bitly, you also have the added benefit to measure the clicks on each link, giving you a better analysis of the Buy Link effectiveness.
