Atlanta social media marketing: How to use the Facebook Buy button to help Christmas shoppers

February 6, 2017

If you are concerned that your social media marketing isn’t generating enough online sales, then it is time to consider how convenient you make it for your customers to purchase your products. With the new Facebook “Buy” button, customers can purchase products directly from your posts without leaving the social network. If you want to make Christmas shopping a simple and pleasant experience for your customers with the Buy button, here is how:

  • Ensure that you have an active PayPal account and that you are logged in.
  • Click on “Profile” under the “My Account” tab.
  • Click on “My Selling Tools” which is in a small window on the left-hand side of the screen.
  • Click on “Update” next to the “Create Custom Payment Buttons for My Website” and then click on “Action” followed by “Create New Button”.
  • In the first drop-down menu, select the type of button you would like to create.
  • Complete the form with the name, details, price and currency of the product you would like to sell and then click the “Create” button.
  • You will now be directed to a page where you can copy the code for the button. Click on the “email” tab and then click on “Select Code” and copy the text which will now all be highlighted.
  • You can now log into Facebook and create a post or update about the product you wish to sell. Paste the button code below your description of the product on Facebook and click “Post”. Your product is now live to the public and customers can purchase directly from the post.
