Auto-linking CommentSold™ to Facebook Posts

This article will teach you how to link any posts made or scheduled in Facebook to CommentSold™ automatically.

There are a few different ways that you can post your products to Facebook with CommentSold™. You can choose to schedule your posts through CommentSold™, or you can schedule them through Facebook. For more info on which method you should choose, check out this article. Here, we will talk about one of the ways you can post through Facebook. You may already be familiar with our manual linking process, but did you know that we have an auto-linking feature as well? You can make or schedule your posts directly through Facebook, and they will automatically be linked to the product in CommentSold™! Pretty cool, right? Let's jump right in and see how it works!

First, you will need to go to the Facebook Setup tab on your CommentSold™ dashboard. Enable "Auto link to post"!

Scroll down and also enable the Auto link Posts to Product Selections. 

Now, it's time to make a Facebook post! The coolest thing about scheduling your posts through Facebook is that you can include multiple photos or even video! If you have your pictures already saved to your computer, you can upload them from there! If you don't have them or can't remember where you saved them, no worries. From your Products tab in CommentSold™, simply click the three dots next to the item and click on "Download Image."

This will download the main image. If you have more than one image and you would like to post them, no problem! After you download the first image, click on the three dots again and click "Edit Images."

On this screen, switch the next picture you want to download to be the main image by clicking on it. Then, you will be able to go back and download that image as well! Simply repeat these steps until you have downloaded all of your images!

Now it's time to make your Facebook post! You can either make the post now or schedule it for later; auto-linking will work either way! If you have already entered a description for your product in CommentSold™ and would like to use that in your post, click the three dots next to that item and choose "Copy Text." This will automatically copy your description and sales info for you to make your post on Facebook!

And paste it into your Facebook Post.

The important thing for auto linking is that the SKU for your product shows up on the post as Style #SKU. Replace the word SKU with your actual SKU. 

If you prefer, you can also write a new description here as well!

Next, add your picture(s)/videos to the post.

 

If you are linking a product selection, the Style # is the exact name of the product selection. For example, if you named the product selection LiveSale8-2020 you'll need to put Style #LiveSale8-2020 in the post.

For easier linking, please avoid using dashes, spaces, or special characters. 

As long as the Style # is included in your post, you are all set! You are now automatically linked to CommentSold™ and ready to sell! 

If you have "Send Notification on Autolink enabled here, your item will also post to your mobile app at the same time!

Don't have a mobile app? Why not?! Read all about that here.

If you post is in sales format, you can change it now! If you are scheduling posts, you can remove the sales format before they ever post. Check out this article to find out how! 

Once you have posted the item, you will receive an email from CommentSold™ which lets you know that your product has been successfully auto linked, and it will also show up under your Posts tab on CommentSold™! That's all there is to it! Happy selling!
