You can now stream your live sale sessions on your Facebook pages, and this process takes no time at all! How about that, huh!
When you setup up your live sale session on the Blynk dashboard, all you need to do is pick the Facebook page you want the sale to be streamed on in the Select Target Audience section in the Setup page.
Step 1: Select if you want the live sale to stream on a page. Make sure you are logged in to your Facebook account.
Enter your Facebook credentials and you’ll see a screen that lets you connect Vajro with your Facebook account. Hit okay. This will let your Vajro account post your live stream to your Facebook page. Select the page you want to go live on and click on “Save Changes”.
If you more than one page, they'll all be listed here.
Note: We're currently working on auto-invoicing for Facebook groups. You will be able to go live on groups soon.
Step 2: Once your Facebook page has been linked, you’ll see a prompt on your live sale screen on your mobile app confirming the same.
Works only if you’re the admin of the page that you want the sale to stream on
Works on only one page at a time for the time being
Cannot be streamed only on Facebook, ie, the streaming will happen simultaneously on the mobile app as well
Auto-invoicing is a feature we’re super excited to introduce on Facebook live sale stream. The idea is to simplify the invoicing process for shoppers who buy from Live sales on Facebook pages.
The feature is only available on Facebook pages right now, and helps enhance your shoppers’ experience.
For auto-invoicing to work, you'll need to go to Page Settings > General > Messages and turn on the “Allow people to contact my Page privately by showing the Message button”
Step 1: Label each product on your rack. This would help your viewers to leave comments for the respective products they wish to purchase.
Click on View Variants and Inventories to see if the product has different variants to pick from, and add the respective title of the variant to the comment to get the right product
Step 2: All your customers need to do is leave the respective comment of the product their wish to purchase in the comments section. This will be displayed during the live sale as an overlay to make it easy for your shoppers. When customers comment this, they’ll be automatically invoiced in their DMs with the link to the product.
Step 3: As soon as they leave the comment, they will automatically receive a direct message of a link that would take them to the invoice page from you
Step 4: Your viewers will have to enter their shipping details and payment details to proceed with their purchase.
🛈 Details will be auto-filled if your viewers are currently logged in to your mobile app.
Once the session ends, you’ll the media your live sale was streamed on
And there you go! You’ve finally streamed your live sale session on your Facebook page as well!
Oh btw! We've made comment management easier for you.
Now all the comments from Facebook and the app will all be on the dashboard in a single chat console!
You can toggle around to see comments from both the medium, or just the mobile app, or just the Facebook stream, as per your preference.
Mobile app only
Facebook Stream only
P.S. If you enter a message on the chat box in dashboard, the message goes to App only. If you'd like to respond on your Facebook Stream, you will have to do so on the Facebook Live link directly.
Also, if a Facebook page is connected with the respective live sale sessions, you'll see an indicator above the chat box to show you that you're live on Facebook as well.
However, if you're not going live on Facebook, here's what you'll see:
And obviously, if you're not streaming on Facebook, the Facebook chat tab will be inactive!
Note: that you need to update your Vajro Admin app on your mobile device to do a live stream on Facebook.
