How to Upload PrestaShop Feed to Facebook Marketplace

If you want to harness the power of the Facebook Marketplace, there are several options to get products from your store listed there. One of them is to generate a PrestaShop feed for Facebook Marketplace and upload it to the Facebook catalog. Facebook catalog is a container that holds information about the items you want to advertise or sell across Facebook and Instagram. Having added your listings to the catalog, you can feature them on Facebook Marketplace.

Note: At the moment this article is published, Facebook Marketplace is available only to US users.

PrestaShop Feed Generator tool with Store Manager for PrestaShop allows you to export products from your Prestashop store to a file and then seamlessly upload the feed to the Facebook catalog.

Steps to Generate PrestaShop Feed and Feature Products on Facebook Marketplace

Let’s review each step in detail.

Store Manager for PrestaShop is a downloadable desktop application tailored for bulk edits, flexible import/export of products, customers, and orders, multi-store management, and offline work.
