    Updated 20 June 2023

    With the ever-increasing use of various social media channels, the way of advertisements is also changing. In the past decade only, the number of users on social media channels has increased significantly. This is not only making merchants adopt new strategies of advertisements but also allowing them to promote their products through these ads. Keeping in mind the fact that it may become hectic to post about products on multiple websites one by one. We bring you the Prestashop Multi-Social Posts module. It offers the possibility to post on social media websites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Tumblr.

    This module will help you to schedule your posts for various websites. You can also publish these posts on all the websites in one go. This will help you to promote your products & spread the word across millions of users available on these social media websites.

    It’s a very well known fact on which you, I or anyone else, would easily agree. Nowadays, posts on social media websites tend to attract us more than ever. And, we do wish to follow the link of the post to find out more about the product or services. This is true with most of the users out there. Hence, providing the product link not only facilitates in sales of the product but easily lands the user from a social media website to yours. And, this is not what we anticipate from the various method of advertisements which we adopt for the promotion of products or the store.

    NOTE: Prestashop Multi-Social Posts Module is compatible with PrestaShop version 8.x.x and multi-store feature.
