(THIS FEATURE WAS PHASED OUT BY FACEBOOK IN 2014 AND NO LONGER WORKS)
ShopTab announces the release of our new Facebook Store Fan Gating feature. This feature is available to Ultimate Package users only. Fan Gating allows you to require a user to “Like” your shopping page before you provide access to your products or services. This is a great way to drive up the Likes for your Facebook Page and also gives you the ability to create a unique and exclusive store that has value to your fans.
To set up the Fan Gate, log into your account. Click on the “Settings” tab and then the “Advanced Options” tab. To create this feeling of exclusivity or unique value, we suggest you create an image that is placed on the page that sells the value of Liking your store. The image can be up to 810 pixels wide by 520 pixels long. Check the box and your Fan Gate will be activated. If you don’t place a URL to an image, ShopTab will load our default image (see bottom of this page for the default image). You may also change the text that will appear below the Fan Gate image or eliminate it.

NOTE: While Facebook indicated Fan Gates would not work in the Timeline format change there has been no impact on ShopTab's Fan Gate feature.
