Facebook Integration on Shopify
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for anyone who wants an eCommerce store with an integrated Facebook shopfront without having any technical know-how or coding skills.
Shopify has become my favorite e-commerce platform.
It is easy to use, offers plenty of integrations that make life easier, and the customer service is fantastic.
One thing many people don’t know about Shopify is how robust their Facebook integration can be when you set up your store with them.
The new Facebook shop on Shopify feature will allow you to manage all aspects of your online storefront from one central location—no more jumping between platforms!
Setting up this way also allows you to sync products in bulk so they’re ready for sale right away without having to go through each product individually in order to upload information like photos or descriptions.
We hope you’ll take advantage of this opportunity and let us help make things even simpler for you than ever before!
