You’ve been asking for an easier verification of your Shop on Facebook, Google and Pinterest for a while. And it’s happening! We’ve optimized the structure of your Spreadshop domain and made it future-proof. You can now sell and advertise products even more effectively on your social networks.
Why does my Shop need a new domain structure?
With the old domain structure, the URL for your Shop looked like this:
For the past few weeks, social networks like Facebook and Pinterest allowed only subdomain structures to be embedded on their platforms. We’ve fixed this for you by fronting your shop name so it will become a subdomain. You can use the link as follows:
The same principle also applies to your checkout area. The URL now looks like this:
The benefits for you and your customers are massive, and you will enjoy this change for years to come!
Why social commerce is a no-brainer
The changeover to the new domain structure ensures that you can continue to sell Spreadshop products via Google, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest in the future. The verification process has been standardized and made more secure. Social commerce is now easy! You can just upload your product feed, advertise, and sell your products. Let’s go!
How can I get started?
In the transition phase, both the old and the new URL for your Shop will work alongside one another. If someone tries to use the old URL, they will be redirected accordingly.
You can already start adjusting all links to your Shop, everywhere you use them. Here are a few examples:
- In your social media bios (Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc.)
- In all future social media posts
- On your flyers, websites, email signatures, etc..
- The links that integrate your Shop with your website
You can find more information on how to verify your Shop directly on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or via the Google Merchant Center. After that, it’s best to start creating new social and Google Ads right away to boost sales in your Shop.
