This can be easily resolved and there are two ways to do it. Which one you use depends on where you want a shared product link to be placed - on your personal Facebook page or on any other Facebook page.
1. As you probably know the easiest way to share some content on your personal page in Facebook is to use a related ‘like’ button. Such button can be displayed on an Ecwid product page if the ‘Show like buttons’ option is enabled in your Ecwid Control Panel (System Settings / Social Tools / Like Button). When it is enabled, sharing a product URL on your personal Facebook page is as simple as clicking the ‘Like’ button on a product page inside your Ecwid store. Please notice that the built-in ‘Like Buttons’ functionality is available for Silver plan accounts only. Thus you need to upgrade to be able to use it.
2. The method above cannot be used if you want to share a product link on another Facebook page. For being able to do it you can use the following simple solution.
Instead of an actual product details page address use the following one for placing in Facebook:
where <store ID>
should be replaced with your Ecwid store ID, which can be found in your Ecwid Control Panel (http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/15853282/...
and <product ID>
should be replaced with the ID of the product you want to share. The following document describes how a product ID can be found:
When you share such URL, the Facebook will request a special page from Ecwid that contains all the necessary data about the product in the format Facebook understands, so the link will be accompanied with the right description and picture of your product.
I hope it helps.
If my understanding of your question isn’t right, then please describe the issue in more details.
: it is now possible to share your products on Facebook right from your control panel (no special link is required):
