People can access your shop from your Facebook Page, Shopping ads, or shoppable posts and stories. You can also add shopping engagement custom audiences to your ad campaigns to reach people who are browsing and buying at your shop.

☞ Drive consideration and sales through conversation

Shops let customers quickly reach out to you through Messenger, Instagram Direct, and soon WhatsApp, to ask questions, get support, track deliveries, and more.

☞ Make use of Facebook’s social media engagement

You can leverage the different social media engagements offered by Facebook such as likes, shares, comments, etc., to promote and sell your products to a wider audience including your friends, their friends, etc.
Grow your brand value with social proof

Within your WooCommerce store, all your customers can do is view products, but Facebook lets them comment on the products, share them with their friends, etc., to give your products the benefit of social proof that will persuade others to try your products as well.

☞ Tag products in Facebook posts to boost sales

Every time you make a post on WordPress you can tag any of your products to make sure that everyone who views your posts is aware of the products you have available in your store.

☞ Provide your customers with an easy purchasing experience

The Facebook store lets your customers make purchases from the same window that they are chatting with their friends, visiting their favorite feeds, etc. Your shop or products don’t interrupt their social media experience in any way.

Well, it works, but: 1- A product that was a draft was published to FB catalog - no aditional info on logs. 2- A free, promotional product, wasn't sync - no aditional info on logs. 3- FB is returning a error. Something about a country/language missing field. Not sure how to fix this, 5 product were rejected by FB for this reason. 4- The sync did not remove from the FB Catalog products deleted from woocommerce store. So well, i think it works, but you have to review all the process, so I think it does not save all the time it could save. Maybe there is a premium version of the plugin which resolves this issues, but I think these are not issues but bugs, so should not happen in any version -paid or not- of the plugin. So i think I will try a few days, just to let FB review all the products and the issues are solved. If I continue with the issues I will try to find another plugin.

Keep up the great work! Your plugin is way better than the Facebook for Woocommerce by Facebook, which was very buggy and caused conflicts with other plugins.
