Creating Facebook Page posts in Shopify

After you set up the Facebook Marketing app, one of the available marketing activities that you can create in Shopify is a Facebook Page post. Facebook Page posts can help you to build engagement on your Facebook Page by letting visitors click a link in a post to see the product in your Shopify store.

It's free to create Facebook posts in Shopify, because they are not a type of Facebook ad. However, when you set up the Facebook Marketing app, you need to add your payment information to Facebook. If you don't create any Facebook ads in Shopify, then you won't be billed by Facebook.
