  • If you have already setup your shop with a banner, title and description you can re-use them for SEO / Social Media
  • There are three sections, a general one, and specific Facebook and Twitter sections.
  • It is important to fill in all of these if possible, as you can never predict where your visitors will share your shop
  • Every sale is good, whether it comes from a share on Facebook, Twitter or another platform, so give yourself the best possible chance by making it as descriptive and as good looking as you can.
