Share On WhatsApp Magento Extension
The “Share on WhatsApp” Extension for Magento, by CueBlocks, allows you to take social sharing of your eCommerce products and category pages to an all-together different level. With this extension, customers can share URLs of CMS pages, product pages and product listings via WhatsApp.
Once the extension is installed, the WhatsApp icon sharing button will appear along with other social sharing buttons but only on mobile devices; which means only on mobile version of your Magento website. Also, the “Share on WhatsApp” extension doesn't work on the web version of the WhatsApp app.
With the “Share on WhatsApp” Extension On Your Store:
- Your customers will be able to share products and pages with anyone who has WhatsApp installed on their mobile phones. This means that users can now share products and preferences with their friends and families to get an opinion before buying or shortlisting.
- The WhatsApp Button will be displayed on all or important Category, Product and, CMS pages which can also be disabled from any one of them.
- This Button is available in three different sizes (Small, Medium and Large).
- Admins can customize the text for product pages and CMS pages to be sent along with the shared link.
- Admins can customize the text of WhatsApp Button
- A CueBlocks customer does not require a WhatsApp account for installation and configuring the extension. However, the end user must have WhatsApp account to be able to receive the page or the product shared with them. Whatsapp is a mobile app and users can download it from their app stores to create the account.
- If the customer wants to use the Bitly URL option for sending the short form of the page or product URL, then an account on Bitly is mandatory. The user can make an account by signing up at: https://bitly.com/a/sign_up. After signing up, an access token will be generated which needs to be used in the "Access token" field under extension settings: Share on WhatsApp>Short URL settings > Type >Bitly and Acess token.
Since the handheld is the most widely used device and readily available with everyone, this extension for Magento will make it extremely convenient for users to share products and product listings, from your online store, with each other.
Add this extension to your Magento store and empower it with more social sharing potential!
