Overview

Back to top

Facebook Catalog Product Feed is very useful and efficient extension.  With one button click, you can generate Facebook Catalog Product Feed.  This feed is used for Facebook Dynamic Ads. Our extension has many  options for customization of your product feed or feeds. Like all of our  extensions, Facebook Catalog Product Feed is multistore compatible.  Every store has its own product feed. Our extension also has a cron  option. This allows you to fully automate the process. With our  extension, you can rest assured your product feeds and catalogs are  always up to date.

Facebook Catalog  is a container for all the products in your Magento store or stores. A  catalog requires a product feed before you can use it in your Dynamic  Facebook Ads. (At least one, however one catalog can have multiple  feeds)

Product Feed  is a file that contains the products you want to advertise. A product  feed is made up of several columns that contain information about your  products, such as unique IDs, pricing, availability and more. This  product feed is used in conjunction with Facebook Dynamic Ads to  automatically promote your products to people who have expressed  interest in your website, in your app or elsewhere on the Internet.

Facebook Dynamic Ads  look exactly like other single image ads or ads created in the carousel  format on Facebook, Instagram and Audience Network. However, instead of  individually creating an ad for each of your products, you create an ad  template that automatically uses images and details from your data feed  for things you would like to advertise. Dynamic ads use your Facebook  pixel or SDK to show ads to people who have already shown interest in  your business by taking actions you care about on your site. For  Facebook Dynamic Ads to work Facebook Pixel must be associated with  Facebook Catalog in Facebook Business Manager.

Facebook Pixel  is a piece of JavaScript code for your website that enables you to  measure, optimize and build audiences for your ad campaigns. Using the  Facebook pixel, you can leverage the actions people take on your website  across devices to inform more effective Facebook advertising campaigns.  If you already do not have Facebook Pixel implemented in your Magento  store check our FREE Facebook Pixel extension.

To use this extension, a free Facebook Business Manager account is required.

FAQ

Q: Can I change product feed filename?
A: Yes you can. There is a convenient option in our extension config. It  is called "Product Feed File Name" in order to see this option you need  to change the scope to Store View. If you have two or multiple stores  be aware that file name must be unique. This means two or more stores  must not have the same file name.

Q: Which "Product Feed Format" should I use?
A: Well by default we set CSV but you can use any format you like. Be  aware that XML-RSS format is an XML that means there is an overhead of  tags so XML-RSS product feed will produce larger file than CSV or TSV.
