You can manage your categories and products from inventory managed sections or by going to Marketing > Sell on Facebook links.

When an user clicks on facebook “Add To Cart” button to purchase an item they will then be taken to your original store to complete their purchase.

Additional Help Topics

We strongly recommend you to add all relevant information (such as your business address, profile picture etc.) on your Facebook store.

To publish your page (means anyone can view without logging in), go to “Manage Permissions” and un-check the box, see below;

Your first public Facebook url will look like this; https://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Book-Store/266529003435231.

However, that url can be changed to more user-friendly name like “myclothstore” such as https://www.facebook.com/myclothstore.

Go to https://www.facebook.com/username/ to create a user-friendly name.
