There is a new featured recently released by Facebook which allows you to add products to a Facebook page, and lets you tag them in images. ( https://www.facebook.com/business/help/1655062744733202 )

Adding this has been pretty easy for me, however whenever I tag a product, it shows up as a modal box on Facebook where it has the information about the product. I noticed other pages have the exact same product information, however when clicking on these, it immediately redirects you to the the website, instead of staying on a Facebook page.

Does anyone know how to set it up so the user gets send to the website?

Check Out on Another Website: a shop that sends customers to your website to complete their purchase.

Here's how to add this shop type to your Page:

  1. On your Page, click the Shop tab. If you don't see the Shop tab, click your Page Settings, then click Edit Page. Next, click the Add a Tab button and click Add Tab next to the Shop option. You should see the Shop tab on your Page now. If you agree to our Merchant Terms and Policies, check the I agree to the Merchant Terms and Policies box, then click Continue. You may be prompted to reenter your Facebook password for security purposes.
  2. Choose Check Out on Another Website to send your customers to a website you choose to complete their purchase. Then, click Continue.
  3. Choose the currency you want to use. This currency will apply to all your products and can't be changed unless you delete your shop section and create a new one.
  4. Click Save.


  • Is there an update on this? I have a shop but I can't find the option to Check Out On Another Website?
