WooCommerce Facebook integration guide

Are you a business owner who’s running a WooCommerce store? Do you know how to boost your online sales by integrating your WooCommerce store with Facebook? Facebook has gradually evolved its business-friendly features, such as dedicated brand pages, to help digital stores promote their products and highlight their brands.

In this tutorial article, I’ll explain the advantages of using Facebook with WooCommerce and how you can connect Facebook with WooCommerce.

Advantages of Using Facebook With WooCommerce

According to StatCounter, Facebook is the most popular social media platform, with a 75.86% market share as of July 2022. That alone makes it an incredibly viable option to promote your WooCommerce store.

More specifically, you can also benefit from Facebook’s WooCommerce-friendly functionality. After connecting your WooCommerce store with Facebook, you can run an advertisement campaign, find new customers, set up an online shop to sell products, and measure results by analyzing customer actions on your website.

What’s more, by integrating Facebook with WooCommrce, you can:

  • Get access to the greater potential audience out of approx. 3 billion users worldwide.
  • Track conversions by using Facebook Pixel and analyze advertisement campaign results.
  • Build better customer relationships.
  • Quickly start selling products through Facebook pages.
  • Transfer all store products and categories automatically.

Here’s how you can integrate Facebook with WooCommerce and reap all those benefits.

How to Integrate Facebook With WooCommerce?

Integrating a WooCommerce store with Facebook is simple, especially when facilitated by plugins that automate most of the process. Your choice of the plugin will greatly impact the success of the process and subsequent operations of the Facebook page.

Some high-functioning plugins in this regard include:

  1. Social Shop for WooCommerce – By StoreYa
  2. Facebook for WooCommerce – By Facebook
  3. Facebook for WooCommerce – By WooCommerce

I recommend you select an updated plugin with the most active installations, positive user reviews, and compatibility with the latest WordPress version.

Facebook for WooCommerce by Facebook is a frequently updated plugin in the WordPress repository. The latest updated version has fixed two major issues (2.6.20 – 2022-08-09). Besides, it is also compatible with WooCommerce version 6.8.

  • In your WooCommerce store, if you move the product to trash, it will also delete from Facebook.
  • When you remove the sales offer from your product, the price will also update on Facebook.

Install Facebook for WooCommerce Plugin

  • First, you need to install and activate the plugin.
  • Go to Dashboard → Plugin → Add New.
  • Type Facebook for WooCommerce in the search box.
  • Click on the Install Now button and then Activate the plugin.Facebook for WooCommerce plugin Installation

  • Go to Marketing → Facebook and click on the Get Started button.
