WordPress WooCommerce – Add Social Media Sharing to Product Pages

August 18, 2019


In this quick video, I will be
demonstrating how you can add this social sharing onto the product pages of
your eCommerce website. Of course, I use WordPress and WooCommerce to do
this. If you haven’t already, check out my video on how to setup this awesome eCom
store for next nothing. Now let’s just compare this to a famous eCom
site here, asos.com. You will see they’ve got this social area here, and
they would have paid a lot of money in development time to get this done.
I’m going to show you in a matter of five minutes how you can add this area
here on your product pages for free. So here we go. Log into your WordPress Admin area. Now
go to Plugins. We want to add a new plug-in. The plugin
that allows you to easily do this is called WooCommerce Social Media Share
Button. So just search for that, and it should be this one here by Toasty Studio.
Install that one, then Activate, of course. The next thing you should see in the
sidebar area is a share-buttons area. So click on that, and here you’ll be able to
select which social media icons or services you would like displayed on
your product pages. As a personal preference on my eCom stores, I like to
display Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and e-mail. You can also choose what kind of a
format you would like them to display in, so a button … button with a counter or a
box in this style. That’s completely up to you. When you’re ready, save those changes. Now let’s have a
look at our eCommerce website. There you go. Isn’t that beautiful? How easy was that to install social
sharing on our product pages? Now each product page will have its own set of
social buttons. When somebody comes in and shares this particular page, they will
be sharing this product. There you go. As easy as that. If you have any questions, ask me in the
comments below. Please do give this video a thumbs up. It really helps me, and subscribe to my

  1. When I click on the Facebook button on the product page it shares my website instead of the product. How do I fix this issue?

  2. Thank you for this video. I could get the share buttons on my products, but is it possible on my blog post ? As I would like to share my posts on social media. Which plugin can I use ?

  3. Hi I do have a problem when I do it and click on the product to share it only shows my header slider photo and a text of the item but not the picture of the item

  4. Thanks for this! I noticed that this video was upload 2015. It's now 2018. Is this woocommerce social media share button – still current and relevant and the best option? Or, is there a more recent and better one? Thanks again. Your instructions and clear voice is excellent.
