About Facebook Shops

Facebook Shops was a “mobile-first” shopping experience wherein small businesses can easily create their online store on Facebook and Instagram for free.

With this, it lets businesses choose which items they wanted to feature, as well as telling their brand story with colors and fonts.

Also, Facebook was working with its partners in order to give small businesses the support they need as these organizations — including Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Channel Advisor, CedCommerce, Cafe24, Tienda Nube, and Feedonomics — offered tools in order to help small business entrepreneurs start and operate their businesses online.

Moreover, Facebook will be adding features across its platforms — including Instagram Shop, live shopping features, and loyalty programs — in order to help people discover and shop for things they wanted.
