Facebook business management integration will allow you to easily sync facebook catalogue products into the built-in ecommerce.
The benefit of syncing this back to our ecommerce is that you can easily match the products from Facebook with our built-in ecommerce.
This is the most needed feature if you are using the WhatsApp product catalogue to build out your native WhatsApp ecommerce.
Connect to your Facebook business account
If you click the “Connect Facebook Business” button, it will request you to authorize access to Konversation
Click the “Continue” button, and now you are already connected with your Facebook business account.
Disconnect your Facebook business account
You can disconnect your Facebook business account anytime by clicking the disconnect button.
Sync the product catalog from Facebook to your ecommerce
In order to sync the product back, you need to click the “list business catalogs” button, and then it will pull out all the product catalogs from your Facebook business account.
And then click the “Facebook -> Local”, you should be able to sync the products into our built-in ecommerce system.
The below value will be synced back.
- Product name
- Product description
- Product image
- Product type
- Product vendor
Please note that the SKU is the same value as the content ID in your Facebook cataglog. That’s how we match the product with our ecommerce.
Don’t change the SKU value. If you want to use the WhatsApp product catalog/native ecommerce, you need to always keep the SKU at the same value as the content ID in your Facebook catalog.
Change the currency
If you are using a different currency in your Facebook product catalog, you need to make sure you change the same currency in your ecommerce settings.
Always make sure the currency settings are the same between Konversation & Facebook product catalog.
Navigate: Ecommerce > Settings > Payment method
