Did you know that it’s possible to open a Facebook store powered by Shopify? In case you didn’t know, Shopify is the most used eCommerce platform which supports integration with Facebook. Needless to say, Facebook is one of the most popular sites, and most used social media platform with millions of daily active users. So, selling on Facebook with Shopify is possible and as a matter of fact, this activity is highly recommended for those who want to sell things online. But, how can we do this? What does it take to launch a Shopify Facebook store and start selling your products right away?
Use Shopify Lite Plan
Instead of using Shopify Plus plan which is created for enterprise-grade businesses, you should use Shopify Lite. This plan is made for those who want to sell on Facebook and talk to their customers on messenger. At this moment, the plan is worth less than ten dollars a month. So, select this plan and register. Keep in mind that you will have to answer a few questions first like how much revenue do you make, do you have products and are you already selling. All these questions are here to help Shopify create a clearer picture of your business.
The next step in this process is to integrate the Shopify and Facebook accounts that you have. Luckily, this is a much easier process than it sounds. First of all, you have to launch your Shopify’s admin panel, open the Connect account tab located in Facebook and Account sections. After that, Shopify will ask you for permission to check your Facebook profile. You should also select the type of content that you want Shopify to manage and publish on your Facebook profile. Don’t forget that you must accept Facebook Store terms and conditions too. This step ends with the creation of a Facebook shop via Shopify.
There is a “add your first product to get started” link on your Shopify account which will guide you to the process of adding new products. Keep in mind that you will have to provide high-quality images and detailed, engaging and precise descriptions for your products in order to increase the chances of selling things over Facebook. You can also start using promotional campaigns on Facebook to attract more potential buyers.
We hope that this simple guide will help you start selling things on Facebook with the help of Shopify.
