How to Install

Note: Before you get started, this feature requires a Premium, please upgrade to one before starting this process.

  1. You need to be logged in to both Storemapper and a Facebook account that is an admin for the Facebook Page.
  2. Head to https://www.storemapper.co/facebook/new and click the button and follow the instructions on Facebook.
  3. This will add a tab to your Facebook page which will load your Storemapper. You’re done!

Couple of things to notice:

Your Facebook Page should have more than 2000 fans

Storemapper is installed as a custom tab to your Facebook page and Facebook doesn’t allow custom tabs on pages having less than 2000 fans. Their documentation explains it like this :

To ensure tabs lead to high-quality, accurate content, the Page Tabs feature is only available to Pages with 2000 or more likes.

Facebook Page Integration does not work on mobile

Unfortunately, this Facebook integration does not currently work on mobile. The Facebook mobile iOS and Android apps do not support Page Tabs. Additionally, the Facebook website in a mobile browser does not support this feature and according to Facebook’s development team, they have no plans to support it in the future. We have looked at numerous workaround but for now, this feature is limited to desktop users. If you see a functioning store locator that works on mobile or have any suggestions for workarounds, please let us know.
