Do you want to grow your ecommerce business? Then get ready to connect your WooCommerce hosted ecommerce store to Facebook and gain access to a whole (and previously untapped customer base.

Today, I am going to show you how you can easily connect your ecommerce store with Facebook. As a result, you can quickly start selling your products on Facebook on your Facebook based online store. At this store, you don’t have to invest time in uploading products, choosing categories and other store set up functions. All the products and categories will be automatically transferred.

A Facebook connected WooCommerce store is a great idea because it offers you the maximum reach with minimum (or zero) investment. In addition, it also proves to be a great source of traffic for your store.

So without further ado, let’s see how we can do this.

First Things First

First, I will need to complete two prerequisites – First, create a Facebook page, and second, install a plugin at the WooCommerce store.

Create a Facebook Page

Login to the Facebook, go to the top right ,and click the “Create Page” option.

You will see several options including Brand or Product, Local Business or Place, Entertainment, etc. In my case, I will select  “Brand or Product”.

Choose a category and a name. In my case, I will choose the “Clothing” category. Next, name the page as “My Shop”, and click the “Get Started” button.

Next, follow the steps and click the “Save Changes” button.

The Facebook page is ready for action.

The work is not over yet. I still have to add a cover photo, profile pic and other page content. However, at this point, the page is functional enough for the purpose of this tutorial.

Install the Plugin at the WooCommerce Store

While you are free to choose any comparable plugin, for the purpose of this tutorial, I will use WooCommerce shop to Facebook, an easy-to-use plugin with a great feature set.

To install the plugin, go to your WordPress Admin Dashboard, navigate to Plugins > Add New. In the right hand panel,  click the search bar and enter the search term “WooCommerce shop to Facebook By StoreYa”. Next, install and activate the plugin.

Now it’s time to visit the Facebook store. For this, click the “Visit Facebook Store”(see the above image). As you can see from the following screencap, all the products of the WooCommerce store is available on the Facebook store.

The best thing is that everything on the WooCommerce stores including all the product and categories are automatically available on the Facebook store. Visitors can also check more details of the products under the “More Info” button.

You can also customize several other settings. Once done, publish your store!
