Quick Start - How To Add a Bullseye Store Locator to your Facebook Page
A how-to guide to installing a Bullseye store locator on your Facebook page
With Facebook and social media on the top of everyone's integration list, you're probably wondering what's the easy way to add my Bullseye Store Locator for Facebook to my Facebook page. While it can be a little tricky if you are unfamiliar with adding Facebook apps, the instructions below should provide you with a good outline and get you up and running in 5-10 min.
Adding Bullseye to your Facebook Page is a three-step process.
Note: Be sure you are using Facebook as yourself, not as your company's Facebook page.
Note: Facebook does not allow any 3rd party apps like Bullseye to be displayed on mobile devices. For more information, on possible workarounds see this article.
Step 1: Add the App to Your Facebook Page
The next page has a red button that says Get the App. Click on it.
Next, choose the page which you want to house the Bullseye Store Locator from the drop-down and select Add Page Tab. Now you have successfully added the app to your page.
Step 2: Link the Facebook Page to Your Locator Account
Once you've added the locator to the page you want, you'll need to go to the page and configure it according to your store locator license.
For this step, you'll need two pieces of information from your Bullseye account. (1) API key (2) Client ID. Both are located under Settings>Account. Go to this page and under Bullseye Details get this information and copy it or jot it down.
Navigate to the Facebook page where you have installed the locator. Click on the Locations Tab .
In the next page you will see a message for Page Administrators (you must be logged in as an Admin to see this), click on Edit App to setup and configure Bullseye.
This brings you to the Bullseye Store Locator settings page.
Enter your API key and Client ID in the appropriate fields then go ahead and click Save. The page will refresh showing the tab options available to your license configuration.
- Countries: If you have locations in multiple countries your locator will include a Country drop down. You have the option to display all of the countries with locations in the drop down by selecting Show all Countries with Locations or you have the option to limit which countries appear in the drop down by selecting Manually Select Individual Countries.
- Map: Select this option to include a map in your locator.
- Header Text: Enter a heading or title for your locator.
- Show Image: You can display a company logo in the top or bottom of the locator by selecting Show Image and uploading an image or by providing the Image Link URL.
The following configuration options require a Bullseye Facebook Premium subscription:
