Facebook for WooCommerce

Description

This is the official Facebook for WooCommerce plugin that connects your WooCommerce website to Facebook. With this plugin, you can install the Facebook pixel, upload your online store catalog, and create a shop on your Facebook page, enabling you to easily run dynamic ads.

Marketing on Facebook helps your business build lasting relationships with people, find new customers, and increase sales for your online store. With this Facebook ad extension, reaching the people who matter most to your business is simple. This extension will track the results of your advertising across devices. It will also help you:

  • Maximize your campaign performance. By setting up the Facebook pixel and building your audience, you will optimize your ads for people likely to buy your products, and reach people with relevant ads on Facebook after they’ve visited your website.
  • Find more customers. Connecting your product catalog automatically creates carousel ads that showcase the products you sell and attract more shoppers to your website.
  • Generate sales among your website visitors. When you set up the Facebook pixel and connect your product catalog, you can use dynamic ads to reach shoppers when they’re on Facebook with ads for the products they viewed on your website. This will be included in a future release of Facebook for WooCommerce.

Hey WordPress, imagine a store with more than 2k products, Facebook makes a cron job (wc_facebook_background_product_sync_cron_interval ) to sync, god knows how many, products every 5 minutes! It's killing CPU on server!!!

This plugin was recently taken over by Skyverge who are working very hard to iron out the kinks. I have had multiple issues when implementing this plugin for clients and every time, Skyverge support has come through in record time solving the issue. In fact, I've never experienced this level of support from a free plugin. Heads - up: This is a great plugin that automates a lot of complex, manual work. It doesn't always work out of the box but Skyverge will help you resolve any issues.

When I first got this plugin it was still in Ver 1. Since Ver 2 this plugin has not worked and forces me to create a new FB page if I want to use it. Don't even bother using it if you had Ver 1 in the past. It's a shame, it was a wonderful plugin but now it's trash.
