I couldn't find in forums this method, so i just wanted to share how can you auto tweet newly added products in your opencart store or any store that uses RSS.

Here's how i did it:

1)The first thing you need is RSS feed extension for new products, I found a free extension here http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... SC&page=10

2)Next step is to register here http://twitterfeed.com/ or just sign in using openID if your using google, yahoo, blogger, etc as a registered user, then you most likely have an openID just don't know it.

3)Next will be the aplication form to fill out. Your url to rss feed should look like this http://www.yoursite/index.php?route=feed/latest_products_rss below the "feed name" and "RSS feed url" there should be advanced options, adjust them to your liking.

For me, i just changed "Post sorting" to GUID and i unchecked "feed is sorted" so it tweets all my products ass new. After everything is set, continue to next step and there you can connect your RSS feeds to Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin.

Hope anyone finds this usefull.

Thanks for sharing.

Just can't figure out how they make money since there are no ads on the site and no charge for an account...

I don't either, but they work great and I've been using them for about 5 years. You can also send new products automatically to facebook and linked in using the same method btw. Wish they would add g+ pages, but cannot have everything :)

Awesome! This saves me a ton of hassle (and forgetfulness).. Had been looking around for this utility quite a while.

Thanks for sharing!

Does the posting consider a backlink for your own site?

Yes, I think the images thing posting to facebook is a glitch in the facebook app.

I tried this option, My RSS feed is empty

Link to my RSS feed : http://bit.ly/15dpsTH

Error i got in twitterfeed.com

Your feed might be empty or missing publish dates or GUIDs. A feed needs to contain publish dates or GUIDs in order to work with twitterfeed, see help

Really good method that works and costs nothing, is there any way to do the same to post images etc automatically to googl+?

Google+ has not done a complete api yet. There are a few paid services that will work with G+ - Hootsuite is one of them. But I have not yet found a free or easy solution to auto post to G+.
