I have set up the app absolutely fine however the app is not auto replying when people message the business on Facebook. It's as if the app isn't even installed.

It's OK. I installed this app to use for Facebook Shop & to use as the chatbot for my online store. It's great for engagement, but, I've had a lot of issues with it: - Now that Facebook has a new business suite app, I no longer receive any notifications for messages and facebook sales, which has affected my messenger response time, customer satisfaction & lost sales. It all worker perfectly before. Now I have to constantly monitor my messenger app.
- Customers can't add quantities of products or add more than one product easily as it just takes the customer directly to checkout with one item and no option to go back or transfer the cart to the store.
- Can't disable the shop now option, which means I have to now source a more suitable alternative, instead of working out what is exactly wrong here.

Auto reply does not work at all! wasnt even showing the message i set, client cannot browse any product after clicking the " show all" button. I am so frustrated as i couldnt remove the auto reply messages even after uninstalling the messenger channel.
