How to connect Facebook and Instagram with your online store


This sales channel lets you sync products on your Jumpseller store onto Facebook and Instagram via a Catalogue. Once a catalogue is created, you can list and manage products from your Jumpseller admin. More importantly, you will be able to easily create Advantage+ Ads on Facebook and Instagram.

This feature uses the information (images, product name, description, links etc.) from your Catalogue to generate automated Ads. Use these Ads to increase your reach across Facebook and Instagram and boost sales. In summary, using this sales channel you can do the following:

  • Easily sync products between Jumpseller and Meta

    Sell the products from your online store on these platforms without having to manually upload them. It automatically synchronizes your catalogue from your store with Facebook and Instagram.

  • Create Product Sets

    Once your catalogue is synced, you can create Product sets to use with different campaigns. This narrows down which products from your catalogue may appear in the ad. Product set filters are dynamic, so over time when your catalogue is updated the products in your set will update as well.

  • Increase your sales with Advantage+ Catalogue Ads

    Formerly known as dynamic ads, Meta Advantage+ catalogue ads use machine learning to scale your ads when you have a broad range or large volume of products. With this you can; personalise your ads, drive more sales, and retarget visitors.

Step 1: Get a Domain

Note:If you are subscribed to plans Plus, Pro or Premium and you don’t have a domain yet, you can request one for free in your admin panel.

You need to have a custom domain before you can use the Facebook and Instagram sales channel. Use our guide to set up a domain with Jumpseller.

Facebook Catalogue

Note: By default, any product created or updated on Jumpseller, with the status of Available, will be created/synced to your Facebook Catalogue.

The Facebook catalogue section will take you to the product catalogue in your Meta account, where you can see all products synced with your Jumpseller store.

facebook-catalog facebook-catalog-20

By clicking on a product, you can see its details.


Forbidden Products: Meta has a list of products you can’t publish in their system. This list includes Digital Products, Services, Tobacco, and other adult products. Review the complete list in Facebook Commerce Policies.

Product Sets

You can also create product sets from your catalogue, with a product set you can group products in your catalogue. This can be used to feature certain products in your ads. You can do this by applying filters to control which products from your catalogue are added to a set. For example, you could filter all women’s shoes that cost less than USD 100.


Product set filters are dynamic, so the products in your set may change over time when your catalogue is updated. For example, if a new product is added to your catalogue later and it meets the filtering criteria, that product will be added to the set.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can’t I list products on a Facebook and Instagram Shop?

As of 10 August 2023, Meta is phasing out the onboarding of new shops without Checkout with Facebook or Instagram. Facebook and Instagram Checkout is only available in some regions worldwide and only with select partners. From now onwards, businesses can use Ads to enable new and existing customers to discover products at scale through an experience that is independent of Shops.

How to configure only an Instagram account? (Manually connect an Instagram Account to Meta Business Account)

Go to Business Setting on your Facebook Business Manager Page and click Accounts > Instagram Accounts and click Add. Fill out the details of your Instagram account to associate it with your business account.



How can I tag products on Instagram without paying for Ads?

As of 10 August 2023, Meta has a new policy which limits the product tagging feature to only accounts that have access to shops. “Businesses without an accessible shop will no longer be able to use features associated with Shops, including product tagging (in posts, reels and stories) and creating new custom or lookalike audiences derived from people who visited a shop.” Meta support

Please follow the steps described on the Instagram help page to unlink. To link, you should always do it through the Facebook & Instagram Sales Channel Setup.

How to verify a domain on Facebook?

To verify the ownership of a Domain found in Jumpseller, go to Business settings and select from the list of verification options: Update DNS TXT record with your domain.

Facebook will indicate a DNS record of type TXT, similar to the following: facebook-domain-verification=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

verify domain

Next, you must follow this procedure:

  1. Go to your Admin Panel > Settings > Domains.

  2. Choose your domain and go down to the section called Advanced DNS Configuration

  3. Create a new entry, the Host value must be Blank, Type must be TXT and value must be the Facebook code you copied on the facebook page.

    txt add domain
  4. Save the changes, go back to the Facebook page and click Verify domain. The change can take up to 72 hours to propagate on your servers. If the status of the domain remains as “Unverified”, you need to click “Verify domain “ again.

How to synchronize a WhatsApp account?

You can use our WhatsApp Business integration to engage more wtih your customers by sending order notifications.

To connect a Facebook Page to your WhatsApp, you can follow the Connect your Facebook Page to WhatsApp guide.

If you want to import a catalogue to WhatsApp you can do that by following the steps on How to create and maintain a catalog.

I can’t configure the Facebook application

Please make sure you have disabled all / any ad blocker in your browser, and enable the option to save and read cookies in your browser, while configuring the Facebook application.

Can I create manual events?

Our integration with Facebook and Instagram consists of two parts: one is the pixel and the other is the conversion API, i.e. some events are sent through the pixel (from the browser) and others through the API (from the server).

If you want to know which events we send to Facebook, go to this list.

Events are presented when triggers are activated, i.e. when there is information being sent to Facebook. You can see in the “Source” column above, that most events are presented by the server (we do not send events to the server and the browser at the same time). Other than the above, we do not recommend using the Facebook Pixel Helper tool or the test events tab in Pixel to analyze the events. It is preferable to use the Meta event manager tool.

If you are creating custom events that we have already sent through the API, these may be deduplicated and this may cause the integration to not work properly or you may receive confusing/incorrect information in the Meta event manager. Go to this help page for Meta companies

Our integration already does all the configuration and event submission in an automated way when you install and configure it in your store, but you won’t be able to see this in the code editor, since everything is done “behind the scenes” in the admin panel. If you have manually inserted pixel code into your Jumpseller store or created manual events in your meta pixel, we recommend deleting the code you manually added to your store and deleting the events created using the event configuration tool below: Use the Facebook online event setup tool.

The store section is not showing on my Facebook page, why?

Please verify if any information appears on your Facebook Commerce. You may not have been approved by their reviewing team. Please contact Facebook Business Support for next steps. You can also check Facebook Merchant Terms and Policies.
