One of our goals is to make it easy for farmers and artisans to sell their food online. We’ve come up with a way for you to do just that without investing in a shopping cart or even a website.
As a seller, once you have a free Food4All selling account, we provide you with a link to your own personal Shopping Page. Once you have this link, you can start selling immediately.
A few ways we can think of to use your Shopping Page link: embed it in your website, add to a button on Facebook, or include a link in your email newsletter. The Online Farm Stand link takes your readers directly to your products within Food4All, where they can buy them immediately. No shopping cart or website required. Selling food online doesn’t get any easier.
If you are wondering how to create a button on Facebook that you can use to link to your products in Food4All, here’s how:
From Facebook simply use the “Learn More” or “Sign Up” button from your Facebook page. Select the pencil to edit the button. Here is what a Facebook button looks like:
Here is what you will see when you Edit the Facebook button:
- Simply paste the link provided in your Food4All account (Seller>My Account>Online Store Settings) into the box that says “Add a website link.” We recommend you test the button to make sure it works.
- Tip: We give you an address that looks like this:
- The link you will cut and paste is highlighted in blue and is found between the parentheses.
- You can use this same link on your website. We’ve created some buttons in a variety of colors that you can use on your website. Or have a creative friend come up with something that reflects your business’s personality.
