Facebook Shops

Facebook is launching a new tool with which you can set up a free webshop within Facebook. This way you benefit from the reach of the social media platform and increase your sales opportunities.

We all shop online. We usually google a product or service or go directly to a trusted webshop to make a purchase. But we also shop via social media. And the relevant channels respond conveniently to this.

Wide range every day

Facebook is getting into e-commerce. Recently you can create a webshop on Facebook in the Netherlands without having your own webshop. With the new Shops function, companies can create a free online store that works on all Facebook platforms. An average of 7.1 million people aged 15 and older use Facebook every day. Instagram follows this with about 3.4 million users per day. With Facebook Shops you reach both channels. Ideal to bring your products to the attention.

Benefits of Facebook Shops

In addition to the wide reach of Facebook and Instagram, setting up a Facebook webshop offers even more advantages:

  • It's a free tool
  • You can offer an unlimited number of products
  • You can divide products into collections and categories
  • You can communicate with customers directly through your page
  • You will receive statistics on sales, visits and more
  • Your products will be displayed in Facebook Marketplace
  • It is accessible for the small entrepreneur
