Easy share information about the products in your Magento webshop to your Social Media followers on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and all other networks supported by BufferApp.

How does it work

Every time you create a new or edit an existing product, it is possible to generate a message that is posted to your Social Media networks, the available actions are:

  • Adding a new product
  • Lower the price of a product
  • Set a special price for a product
  • When a product is back in stock
  • When a product is enabled
  • Spotlight a random product

Spotlight random product

If you have a large catalog where the products aren't updated frequently, it is still possible to push messages about a product. For this it is possible to use the Spotlight feature, this randomly selects a product from your catalog and pushes this to the selected networks. It is possible to specify the time frequency and it is possible to random select the message format to use, allowing you the specify multiple formats in advance so that the message is never the same.

Customise your message

Easy format the message you want to display with the option to insert product specific attirbutes that will be replaced when the message is generated. 

Available parameters for messages:

  • {{var product.[attribute_name]}}: Product attributes
  • {{var url}}: Product URL for store
  • {{var price}}: Formatted price excl. VAT/TAX
  • {{var priceInclTax}}: Formatted price incl. VAT/TAX
  • {{var finalPrice}}: Formatted final price excl. VAT/TAX
  • {{var finalPriceInclTax}}: Formatted final price incl. VAT/TAX

Message scheduling

Every messages can be scheduled, scheduled as first to go out or posted directly to the selected profiles that are configured in your BufferApp account, BufferApp then handles the posting of the messages and keeps track of all statistics of all your social media messages.
