In addition, you will have to answer a few questions, so it’s better to have some sort of business plan before you sign up.

When you have the Shopify store up and running, you should check the requirements shared by Facebook. In rare cases, you won’t be able to sell things via Facebook even though you can do this with the help of Shopify. Once you are sure that the store you’ve built meets the requirements, you should feel free to add the sales channel and synchronize the Facebook account with your Shopify account. Don’t forget that it takes some time for Facebook to check and review your Shopify store before you can start offering your product through this popular social media platform.

So, go to your Shopify admin panel and select the + button next to the Sales channels tab. Select the Add sales channel dialog and choose Facebook. After that, click the Add channel button. Connect your account on Facebook. The review process we’ve mentioned lasts for up to 48 hours or even more in rare cases. In any case, you will get an email notification about their decision.

If for some reason your store is not approved, you can send a message to Facebook and get more info about what went wrong. So, it is possible to make some changes in order to solve this problem and start using Shopify for your Facebook store.
