Node installation

Unlike other integrations in bindCommerce, the one with Facebook Catalog does not require the installation of a specific node.

Instead, the installation of a web server node is mandatory, to allow the correct management and flow of images related to the products. To learn more, it is necessary to go inside the tutorial Creating a Web Server node to publish images

Import links produced by the site

The product link must be present in the feed that will be sent by bindCommerce to Facebook containing the products and related information.

To do this, you need to go to the eCommerce section, select the type of eCommerce you are using (Woocommerce, Prestashop, Shopify, Magento, VirtueMart, OpenCart, Italiaonline) and go to the relevant Import Products section.
