Upload Stock Items from the to a Facebook Commerce Catalog With a Data Feed
The Facebook Integration for the Alliance Business Suite allows you to maintain a data feed to bulk upload Published Stock Items (Store Products) to your catalog using an automatically generated spreadsheet file.
You will need to configure the data feed on the Facebook Commerce Manager by a file once or set up a schedule to update your catalog automatically on a regular basis. Your catalog can hold multiple data feeds, but each data feed must contain different items.
Note: These steps are to set up a new data feed. Depending on the feed configuration, Facebook will automatically retrieve and update published items on a schedule.
