Facebook provides a variety of options that allow you to start making sales from directly within the platform. You can sell directly from your Newsfeed simply by adding images of the products you’re selling and directing prospective buyers to the URL of your external app. You can also use a third party app to do this for you.
You can also display your products with a buy button on an app on your page which is connected to the store on your website. When a prospective customer clicks the buy button, they are transferred to your website.
