Learn How To Create A Facebook Shop To Sell Your Products Directly On Your Page


hello everyone this is Viren Baid and
welcome back to another Facebook marketing tutorial, In this tutorial I’m
going to show you how to set up a shop section on your Facebook page which can
connect to the checkout page on your website or which can get your users to
chat with you on the messenger about the product on your page. So what you can do
is you can set up a virtual shop on Facebook for each of the products that
you are trying to sell. The users can see details of each of the products that you
sell like description, images, and you can add links to checkout on your website or
have a message Now button, which the user can use to chat with you on the page
immediately. The only downside here is that Facebook by itself does not have a
payment gateway so the transaction does not really take place on Facebook. It is
still an amazing way to let your fans discover the products that you’re
selling on Facebook itself. To give you an idea of how it really looks like, I am
going to show you the Facebook page called super bites. It’s a food and
beverage company based out of India and they sell a lot of healthy foods as you
can see from the cover picture. Now you will see that this page has something
called the shop section here and if I go into it these are the products that they sell energy bar category, flaxseed, granola
and nuts and I can click on any products and I can see the images of the product,
I can read the product details, I can see the price. I can message them about
the product and start a conversation with the page. You can see the text is
already prefilled with, “Hello I’m interested in this product of yours” or I
could also just check out on their website. There you go I have directly
reached a checkout page. So I’m going to show you how to set this up for your
page and we will begin by going into settings, edit page. You’re gonna you have
to add another tab to your page which is called shop. So click on add a tab. There
are these kinds of stabs that you can add called events, notes, offers, services.
So I’m going to add shop. There you go, the shop is added I can change its position
on the page. I can decide where I want to show it on the page right now or not and
here’s a URL to my shop. Let’s save this go back to our page. As you can see
the shop tab has appeared here and if I click on shop you will first has to
agree to the merchants terms and policies of Facebook. You could go ahead
and read the policies if you want by clicking on the link here. You have two
options here message to buy or checkout on another website. You can select
either one and what currency will you use, so for now let’s select Indian rupee. There you go, my shop section is now set
up. I can start adding products now. So let’s say I want to add a product. To
add every product, you need to add photos, videos, please read the photo
guidelines that Facebook has. You can name your product, the price, whether it’s a sale price or not. So you can enter the sale price as well. Add the
description. There’s something called featured products. These products will
actually appear on your on the top of your page and whether you want to share
this product right now or not. So that’s how you can create your product on
Facebook. Let me just delete the page once again
so that I can now set it up with a checkout link. Lets agree to the policies
again and this time I’m going to choose checkout on another website. Again Indian rupees. My shop is set up again. Add product, and here you’re going to have to
add the checkout URL for your product. That’s the only difference here,
otherwise everything else is exactly the same. What these guys have done is
they’ve actually used a third party to set this up called Shopify. You can go to
Shopify.in and there’s something called Facebook shop. You can set it up
from here. They offer you a free trial for 14 days so you can use that. There’s
another page here called Zopky. They are into international travel. So as you
can see their shop is here on the page and these are the featured products that
they have right now. So the featured products show up here and if you click
on see all you will see all of their products. So they are trying to sell
international holiday packages and these are all the features products for
their shop and the rest of the listings are here. These are all their product so
if you click on any product again you can see all the images of the product,
there are product details and you can message the page about the product well.
That’s it for this tutorial. Please go ahead and set up your own shop on
Facebook. It’s a brilliant way to get people to buy products from you right
through Facebook. If you’re a small and medium size business, it is very tough to
get audience to come to your website and make a purchase, so why not try and sell
your products on Facebook itself. It’s a great way I really recommend you to try
it. I hope you like this tutorial and if you
did please like and subscribe to my channel. In case you have a friend who’s
trying to set up their business or doing business from home, please do share this
video with them so that they know that they can also sell their products on
Facebook. Thank you and have a great day.

But I don’t get the message to buy option. I tried asking Facebook for help and they didn’t help, looked on google for answers that might help me and nothing. Can you help me?

  2. Hi, Viren,
    It was very informative video. I just have started selling online with my first product. So would it be okay if I create page just for single product ? Or should I add couple of products to my portfolio and then I should proceed with this?
    Please advise, thanks for the video again.

  3. Thank you for this video! Your videos, in general, are awesome. I have a couple of questions, could I use the Facebook shop with digital products or only physical products? And another thing is can I link the "buy now" button to my PayPal instead of a website? Thank you 🙂

Most of them talked about uploading data feed file through microsoft excel or something like that. Tried it all. Nothing worked. This video was simple and easy and my products are now showing up in my facebook shop. I now know the value of patience. Thank You!
