If you're looking to create a catalog of all your products for Facebook Shop or Instagram shopping, you need to look no further than Socioh.
You can quickly import your product feed using Socioh's easy catalog settings—and all it'll take are a few minutes.
Sounds good? Let's get started.
First, you'll need a Facebook Business Manager. If you already have one, Socioh will automatically detect and present it on the drop-down in your settings. Simply select the correct Business Manager and you're ready to go.
You can also safely skip all the other settings (pixel, ad account, and so on) if you're not planning to run ads.
Section 1: Creating a catalog of all your products on Socioh
Once you have connected your Business Manager to Socioh (remember to save it), then all you need to import your product feed into Facebook is a catalog.
Not only does Socioh help you do this, but we also import all your inventory information into this catalog — so that only products that are in stock show up in your Facebook shop.
1. Now, to create a catalog, go to your dashboard and click on "Create Catalog":
2. After this, you'll be asked to choose the products to include in the catalog. You can choose to import all your product listings (“All products in shop”) or import a select few (“Select Products”).
3. You'll be taken to the screen below where you can choose to:
rename your catalog.
import your inventory.
define your Etsy domain.
select image fitting.
We suggest leaving the pre-selected options as they are. Both inventory sync and our image fit are useful for your social media visitors' experience when browsing your Shop.
IMPORTANT: Before we progress to the next section, you may be wondering about the custom URL domain setting you see. If you want to use your catalog for Instagram shopping or tagging your products on Instagram, you will need a custom verified domain. For the ideal experience with your Etsy feed, we suggest that you register for a verified domain and enter your custom URL before you proceed to publish the catalog.
Hit “Publish” from the top right of this screen once you’re done here.
We will create a catalog of all your products with your customized settings. It may take up to 5 minutes for the catalog to process depending on the no. of products.
Once the catalog has been processed, you can connect it to your Facebook shop through the following steps.
