About Facebook channel

The Facebook Channel gives you all the tools you need to successfully sell and market across Facebook and Instagram. Discover new opportunities to help you scale and grow your business, and manage all your Facebook accounts and products from one place.

Simple setup

One-time account connection across all the places you want to sell and market with Facebook. Once you connect your accounts, all your Shopify products will automatically sync to your catalog on Facebook. Your catalog holds information about all the items you want to sell or market on Facebook and Instagram and is a requirement to sell with Instagram, Facebook Shops & Facebook Marketing. Easily set up your Facebook pixel to better understand customer behaviour and traffic, and to help you create effective marketing campaigns.

Sell from anywhere with the new Facebook Shops

Give shoppers a new online shopping experience with a custom online storefront that will showcase your brand’s story. Create a single shop for both Facebook and Instagram to sell your product and collections and seamlessly manage your orders in Shopify. Your followers can now automatically check out via your website or directly on the app (US only).

Sell products with Instagram Shopping

Give shoppers a new way to buy from your store by tagging products in your posts and stories. Once you are approved for Instagram Shopping, all you have to do is connect your catalog from the mobile app. Your followers can now check out on your website or directly on the app (US only). When checking out on Instagram, customers can take advantage of the speed and security of Shop Pay. Additionally, any products you tag, will also show up in your shop tab that lets shoppers browse your shoppable posts —all in one place.

Advertise with free and paid ads

Use marketing features to help engage followers, build your audience, and boost sales. You can create Facebook audience building ads to help new customers find your online store and promote up to 5 products in a carousel ad. Dynamic retargeting ads further enhance your ad strategy by allowing you to retarget shoppers that visited your store, getting you closer to making a sale. Target the right audience with interest-based targeting or lookalike audiences. Choose a budget, along with campaign start and end dates that work for you. For low risk marketing, you can also use tools like social page posts to build brand loyalty and promote discount codes to your Facebook Page followers.

State of Indigo

In a nutshell - it doesn't work for my store which is pretty much a straight outta the box Shopify shop - no reason I can see that it should be so hard. Not meeting Facebook's commerce account requirements, pixel not working, catalog not approved (although i managed to fix this with yet another 3rd party app), marketing not set up. It feels like this app is a red flag to Facebook and their default is to reject Shopify stores on every level. It's unweidly and virtually impossible to make sense of - or to resolve the issues.

After reading some of the reviews here, I am relieved to know it's not just me. I have struggled with this Facebook app for weeks now, trying to fix things and having errors. I'm pretty new to this. After having my FB add run smoothly for several weeks, all of a sudden the IG has an error and I can't fix anything. I am going to delete the whole thing and then in a couple of days, try to start over.

Too many errors after adding this. Old pixel is still on fb, unable to edit iOS preferences for new pixel. Unable to change the old pixel in running ads.

Hey there,

Robyn here from Shopify. Thank you for taking the time to share your review of the Facebook Channel with us. Your feedback is extremely valuable to us. I'm sorry to hear of the struggles you are facing with the pixel. While Shopify support the installation of this, we don't have access to the existing pixel on the Facebook side. That being said, I'm going to look into this and follow up with you in an email to open up the lines of communication here so I can see if I can help you any further.
