That being said, I have shared a step-by-step guide you need to follow to integrate Facebook into your Shopify store to smooth the process for you.

Apart from this, the process isn’t quick and demands your patience, as well as a few requirements and eligibility criteria that I have listed further in the article.

Let’s begin!

Requirements For Shopify Integration With Facebook

Let’s begin integrating your Shopify store into Facebook. I’ll first explain the basic technical requirements that you must tick and the eligibility criteria to be able to integrate Shopify into Facebook. 

System Requirements

Facebook can be integrated by users of all Shopify plans. But before you can integrate your Shopify store to Facebook, you should set up a Facebook Business Manager and need to be the admin of both – 

  1. Facebook business page.
  2. An ad account with the admin role of Facebook business manager.

With that in mind, let’s check the eligibility criteria for Facebook integration into your Shopify store. 

Eligibility

The eligibility criteria are simple: you only need to have a live Facebook account and an online Shopify store, however obvious this might seem.

And that is how you integrate Facebook quickly into your Shopify store. But wait, the process is not done yet. I agree that this is a lengthy process, but you need to have patience. 

Shopify will now review your Facebook sales channels first before authenticating. Also, you need to verify your “Facebook Shop” information to publish your Shopify store on Facebook. 

Once the review is done, you will be notified, and then you can continue expanding your Shopify store via Facebook by adding products and choosing which products to display!
