Creating your Catalog of Products

The Facebook business manager allows you to setup a catalog of products, and this can be used in a variety of areas, such as your 'Shop' products on Facebook, as well as creating very nice carousel ads on Facebook & Instagram.

Open your Business Manager -> Catalogs section to begin connecting EasyCart to your Facebook system.

Add a Product Data Source

Now that you have a catalog created, it's time to add a data source, and this is where we want to connect and have it pull your products from your WordPress EasyCart system.

Simply go to 'Product Data Sources' and choose 'Add Data Source' to get started.

Upload Once OR Set a Schedule

Now you can paste in your Data Feed URL provided by the EasyCart Facebook & Instagram system.  You can choose to set a schedule so that Facebook will check your products hourly, daily, or weekly.

Remember, your feed is found in your WP EasyCart -> Settings -> Third Party section.  Visit tutorial #2 if you can't find it.

IF you wanted to upload a custom CSV file, simply download our CSV file and customize it and choose to upload it one time here.  It's that simple!

You can customize every image, title, price, and description by going to your EasyCart product -> Facebook Options panel.
