    Default Facebook purchase share - still relevant?

    Hi all, does anyone still use the Facebook purchase share feature and find it works or is it old hat now and things have moved on?

    I would be grateful for any insight. TY

    We've never done much with Facebook, but recently I read about something called Facebook Shops. Just wondering if anybody has set this up?

    I think the Facebook shop and also the Instagram shop are both really worth setting up. I have tried to do mine but it won't work / connect. Facebook have been 2 weeks so far trying to fix it for me

    I've just set my Facebook shop up, but at the moment, Facebook keeps removing things saying they contravene their terms....so I am having to appeal lots of things.

    Also having to look at how we input things into BP as Facebook seems to want certain information and if you use some fields for custom info, Facebook doesn't seem to like it.

    To my knowledge, Facebook Shops is the new thing! It is the Facebook Marketplace that I think bornfree is referring to!
