Meta Commerce (Facebook Catalog)


How to create Facebook Catalog in Meta Commerce

Visit your “Catalog Manager” and create one or more Facebook Catalogs (if you don’t already have any). You can have several catalogs in your Facebook Catalog Manager, and when you create each of them, you can choose where you want each product to link. Currently, you have three alternatives:

  1. Checkout on Facebook
  2. Link to your external website (for instance your WooCommerce, Shopify, or eBay cart)
  3. Link to Facebook Messenger or Instagram Direct, if you just want to have a communication with your clients.

Once you have at least one Facebook Catalog active, you can log in to your Meta Commerce account in Nembol.
