Facebook Expands Shops to All US Businesses

Facebook Shops & Instagram Checkout Expand to All US Businesses

Facebook is planning to roll out a dedicated shopping tab for all US businesses to expand their in-app purchases. This is because the company observed a rapid increase in online shopping during the pandemic. One of the reasons to introduce a separate shop tab, as quoted by Google, is to make shopping easier for businesses to connect with people and improve sales.

So what are the new ways for customers to shop, and the latest tools for businesses to sell on Facebook and Instagram?

The new ‘Shop’ tab will be available in the mobile app where users can find what they are looking for. Facebook shops help people to find products from businesses they love and also discover new ones and make purchases. 

The new customization features included in Facebook Shops are:

  • Design layout for featuring single products or group of products in Shops
  • Real-time preview of collections while they get designed
  • The ability to automatically generate Shops for new sellers
  • New insights to gauge results in Commerce Manager

It’s currently being tested in the US and is expected to expand its radar to different regions soon. Read the complete article to learn more about the update!
