2. Shopgate tasks
2.1 Request access to Facebook App
Case 1: Facebook App is already created by the shop
Facebook App ID entered at Shopgate Admin?
What are the steps?
The shop has already set-up a Facebook App and deposit the Facebook-App ID in the Shopgate Backend.
The shop has to request access to the admin area.
The process of setting up the Facebook app is stored in the shop documentation.
As soon as the shop has added the account as admin, the Facebook app of the shop will appear in the 'Apps’ section on the email@example.com accounts.
Please note down the ID of the app because it will be needed later on.
The shop has already set-up a Facebook app, but the Facebook app-ID is not stored in the Shopgate backend.
The shop is required to deposit the Facebook app-ID in the Shopgate backend. If that is the case → back to Step 1a.
Case 2: Facebook App is not yet created by the shop
If you haven't set up a Facebook App for your shop, Shopgate offers the service to help you do so. You only need to inform Shopgate about the Facebook account which is assigned as admin.
The app ID is needed later on. You’ll find it here
The next step is to connect the app with the Business Manager explained underneath.
2.2 Request access to the Shop
Additionally to the access to the app, it's necessary to request access to the Facebook Page of your shop. Otherwise, there won’t be a reasonable display of the sender's advertisements.
The access to the page has to be requested after having received access to the Facebook app.
Follow the steps below:
