How to Create Facebook Shop?
I am assuming that you have a Facebook Page and this way, it will be easier to get started. If you don’t have a Facebook page and then create it and enable Shops on your page first. So, just to go to the page and then simply follow the below steps.
Step 1: Go to the page settings and then go to the “Templates and Tabs” section. Scroll down to the bottom and then simply enable the “Shop” option and it will then appear on your page.
Step 2: Now, go to the page and select “Publishing Tools” and then go to the Shop. Here you can manage the products in your shop.
Step 3: In the ‘Products’ section, you can start adding items in the shop. Just click on the “Add Product” button and proceed with the product information. Just add a product image, description, price, and select other options as you like. Next, you can opt to keep the products unpublished or you can just post it on your page and add it to the shop directly.
Step 4: Now, you can add as many products as you like and then preview the shop with all items. The other important things in the shop are orders management. You can see all the orders and pending orders in the Shop settings and then do whatever you want.
In this way, you can create Facebook Shop on your Business Page. Just change the banner on the Shop and sell your items with ease. With some tweaks, you can add Stripe integration or some other payment option. Or, you can just redirect a user to your website or some other shopping cart or anywhere you like.
