More on Facebook Shops: Facebook has made many attempts at e-commerce, but this could be the one that finally sticks, with big implications for smaller brands and retailers. Facebook Shops is the company’s first major leap toward a unified e-commerce platform. Announced this week, it will allow businesses of all sizes to set up an integrated online storefront for customers on both Facebook and Instagram. 

The new centralized shopping experience is rolling out on both apps now, with a dedicated shopping tab coming to Instagram’s navigation bar in the coming months. Facebook also plans to integrate messaging capabilities via WhatsApp and Messenger later this year. 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg calls Facebook Shops “the biggest step” the company has taken to unify e-commerce across its family of apps. With many businesses closed due to COVID-19, Facebook Shops come at an opportune time for sellers who haven’t been able to make the transition from offline to online commerce, while opening the door to smaller or first-time retailers. Facebook Shops is free to use and is designed to make shopping easier and more seamless for both customers and the businesses selling on the platform.
