Connect Square Online to Facebook

If you have a Facebook page for your business, you can connect your Facebook account to create ad campaigns, sync your item library to Facebook, and allow visitors to shop from your Facebook page.

Note: Before linking your Facebook page, please make sure if you have set up a Facebook Shop Page properly.

You’ll need to complete a one-time setup process before you can create ads or use Facebook shop:

  1. Connect your Facebook account

  2. Choose which Facebook page to connect

  3. Install the Facebook Pixel

  4. Import your item library

Connecting to Facebook

To get started, go to the Website > Facebook page in your Square Online Overview page and click the Connect Facebook account button. If you’re not already logged into Facebook, you’ll need to do that first.

You’ll be prompted to grant permissions for Square Online. Click the Choose what you allow link if you’d like to review the details and toggle specific permissions off. For example, if you are an admin for more than one Facebook page, you can exclude any pages that shouldn’t be connected with your online site. When you’re finished, click OK to continue.

Note: If you don’t see the prompt to grant permission immediately after logging in, you may need to close the Facebook window and click the Connect Facebook account button again.
