VM to Facebook shop synchronization
« on: March 03, 2019, 00:04:05 am »
Do anyone know of an integration with Facebook (FB) shop (the native FB shop solution)? Something like https://woocommerce.com/products/facebook/
I can find plugins to automatically post products to FB wall but not something to easily sync (parts) the VM shop with facebooks shop solution.
Does that exist and can anybody who uses it tell me about how it performs?

We have products that would be better suited for one of my FB pages that has many followers but I would not trust FB enough to spend hrs and hrs to solely list products there (just to see it go one day because of changed fb politics or so..).

I am on newest stable Joomla/VM.

Hello Hawker
Thanks for bringing these up, I had been looking at these already though.

StoreYa is a facebook shop addon with a monthly cost that is too high for my purpose.
I was merely looking for a way to utilise Facebooks own shop via product import from VM but it seems that is not doable atm.

Again, thanks for the suggestions

I have a solution to this, but it's not free.
The reason is that each store is set up individually. Depends on the information uploaded for the products. For example, each category should be customized according to Google's product type.
It is also important which method is used for promotions. Whether overwriting the price or promoting an entire category.

I have also set up to sync up to 5 photos of the product with Facebook. But more can be synchronized.
I also added a password so that not everyone can access the data sent from the site to Facebook.

There are many mandatory fields that need to be customized according to the store. I guess there is no universal solution ready, because it is not so simple.
But once set up, everything works completely automatically without a problem.

So if you are interested, send me a PM.
