Off the shelf wordpress plugins do not always work because you are on one page ... /store ... so when visitors click the share button on the product detail page, all they are doing is sharing the front page of your store. This is a good exercise to first get it to work properly, and self-improvement how it works under the hood, with your coding in the views.
