How to Setup Your Facebook Shop

The Facebook shop section is a tab you can add to your business Page and it lets you display products you're selling. It's ideal for merchants, retail and e-commerce advertisers who want to reach more people on Facebook. It's free to use, and Facebook doesn't take any percentage of what you earn.

You can also consider adding a Store, which can bolster your presence and conversions.

To create a shop on your Facebook Page

1. On your computer, log in to Facebook and go to your page.

2. Click "Settings" located at the top left of the page.

3. Click "Edit Page", then scroll down and click the "Add a Tab" button.
