With Picfair Plus, you can build on your exposure and following - by linking your social media profiles to your Store, adding custom links to your Store menu and having an alternative social media preview! You can link your Store to your blog, website, Instagram, or wherever you like!
What are custom links?
Custom links are links to other websites that you can add to your Store’s menu. This is displayed on the left of your Store header, and they can be anything you like. If you want to add a link to your personal blog, or to another website you have, you can add this here.
Adding custom links to your Store menu
To add custom links to your Store menu, go to the Header & Navigation section of your Store Settings:
Under the Header Menu section, you can add more links by clicking Add Link. Here, another window will appear where you can enter the full URL of the link you would like to add (e.g. https://example.blog.com) and you can also enter a name for the link which will appear on your Store menu (for example Blog). Selecting the option Open in new tab will open the linked page on a new tab of the user’s web browser, so your Picfair Store page will remain on the user’s web browser when they click on one of your custom links:
From this section, you can also edit and delete your custom links at any time.
Linking social media profiles
Sharing your Store is something we encourage all photographers to do! We find that a large number of image views come through social media, so the more places your Store is linked to, the better!
How to link your social media accounts
Linking your social media accounts to your Plus Store is a great way to increase your social media following by giving visitors the ability to view and connect with your social media accounts. As a Plus user, any link to your social media accounts will appear on the footer on every page of your Plus store. Linking your social media accounts also allows you to share your Store on your social media accounts in a few simple steps with Picfair’s social media sharing tool.
To link your social media accounts, click Store in your dashboard and click on About, which will display the page with all of your account information. You can also access the link directly to this page here.
At the bottom of this page, you’ll see fields where you can add your social media usernames for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, TikTok or your personal website.
For Twitter and Instagram, you can link your username for those accounts, for Facebook you can either link a Facebook Page, or your personal Facebook account by linking your personal account’s username. For Facebook, your username may be different to your display name and you can find your account’s username via Facebook settings.
