You can create the Facebook shop to enhance your F-commerce either directly through Facebook or through some special tools which not only would enhance your presence but will also help in the future consideration of the product base.

The first step would be to navigate to your Facebook Business Account where you have a business page and admin privilege. On the timeline below the cover photo to the right, there will be a button called ‘Add a Shop Section’. Click on the button to create the section there.
A pop-up page will come up which will ask you to Add shop section. You have to click the blue button to add the section by agreeing to the merchant terms and conditions. It is advisable to read the terms and conditions very carefully in order to understand it clearly.

If you click on the box, any query regarding the shop will be directed directly to your email address. In the last columns, you will have to give your business address in complete totality.
Step 3: Payment Configuration
Facebook provides you with two options for collection of Payment received through it. The first option is to process the payment through the Facebook page to which the merchants often accept. The other option is to redirect the customers to another website like your own website for that purpose. Once you have configured that you would like to check the payment out through Facebook, you will be asked to set up the payment account.
The merchants from the US can set up their account through PayPal or Stripe as they are very common in the US. While the customers and Merchants from other regions can set up using methods like bank transfer or Cash on Delivery (COD) Mode. It will also ask about setting up your Payment System which you can do so by clicking to connect to an existing Stripe or PayPal account.
