Seriously! I've used this for a year now. Facebook is a big proponent of my sales. I've honestly considered doing away with shopify completely since I almost always end up having to invoice my customers since they can't click on the shop link on my facebook page and it work properly. Shopify also isn't syncing so no one sees my new items unless I post them directly. I thought the point of having this was to keep me from having to post in multiple places. Guess not.
Thanks for sharing this feedback with the Facebook app! I know this must be frustrating and sometimes the issue is with a few settings that need to be adjusted within Facebook.
We are constantly looking at ways to improve the functionality of our apps. I've reached out to you via email so I can provide specific assistance for the issues you are seeing. Looking forward to connecting soon!

As reported in the over 140 1-star reviews this app is nothing but the source of continued and repeated irritation. I currently have over 30 luxury brand bags and hats that apparently are live animals. No means of contacting Facebook. Nothing.
Thanks for sharing this feedback on our Facebook app! When Facebook incorrectly categorizes products there is a Facebook Support form you use to appeal the product. I’ve followed up with you via email to log your feedback and see if you were able to successfully appeal the products. - JP, Shopify Support
This app is absolutely trash and doesn't work in the least sense of the word. Cannot add products to the catalog and the Facebook shop doesn't have any products whilst the Facebook app seems to be in a pending mode. TRASH, had this issue since mid 2018
Hey there, thanks for sharing this feedback with us! I'm sorry to hear that the Facebook sales channel isn't working properly for your business, and I'd like to investigate this further with you. I’ve followed up with you via email and I hope to hear back from you soon! - Lauren, Shopify Support
This app is a piece of crap & does NOT display anything on FB.

The app doesn't work. Products do not show up under "Shop" on the Facebook page and there's no way to get help. Very annoying and a waste of time!
Hello Headgear, firstly thank you very much for your feedback here. I'd like to help you get set up and get this app working for your store, so I'll also be sending you a detailed email to help get set up. You'll likely need to make sure the following is set up: The Facebook template is set to "Shopping", the "Shop tab" enabled and also to make sure the page is published on facebooks side and connected. My reply will have a few screenshots to help demonstrate how to add these, You'll hear from me very soon, thank you!

A very unpleasant experience so far. So many questions that can't be answered. You cannot get direct support. Questions can't be found in their 'Help Center'. If there's a problem, they can't help. You can report the problem but they don't reply. There's no support whatsoever. Even as I try to send this, there's a problem.
s++t i wasted tons of money for programmer to fix product export and still doesn't work , very disappointing now . customer support is sh=t FB blames on Shopify - shopify to FB
i am having difficulty viewing my store as a customer, i have added products but i still get an error on facebook that my store is not visible to the public unless i enable which has already been done a long time ago.
I have used Shopify for my online shop for 2 years now and have linked up and used the 'shop now' button on facebook with success and been able to tag products within Instagram which I found really useful. Then in the last few weeks I've had nothing but glitches. It comes up in Shopify that many individual products are now not listed on facebook, that Facebook has disconnected my account and I have to verify it again and wait for approval. If I use anyone else's iphone/laptop to check what potential customers can view, I can see that my web page is still linked via the facebook shop now button but behind the scenes I cant tag products in Insta because my facebook catalogue cant be seen. Within 'sales channels' on shopify home page listings, looking at the facebook option, the product collections have a 'publish' button at the foot but while all the collections are there this button is greyed out. Now on Insta, any previous posts with tagged products are untagged. Great timing as my January sale is in full flow with no promotion available to me from the two main streams of social media I use - FB and Insta. Looking at other reviews it would seem Shopify and Facebook have a problem with each other and we are left with unresolved problems and potentially suffering a loss of sales or business leads as a result.
Very basic use and unreliable functionality. Apparently neither SHOPIFY guru team nor FB support understand what the app does and when or why (not). I have no access to my catalogue because it is not owned by my FB accounts, and nobody knows how access can be generated. After endless chats with both sides I have set up a new catalogue - only to be stuck at a point where it doesn't allow to connect to the FB pixel on my store. I spoke to 6 FB agents and 3 Shopify agents, countless screenshots and screencasts and 3 weeks later: Nothing. Brilliant example of a system that seems to be too complex for anyone to get a grip at if things go wrong.
