FB Shops Order Management Using Fbmfox

This user guide will take you through the steps of managing orders from your Facebook Shop using Fbmfox, from placing the order to marking it as shipped.

This requires the Fbmfox Chrome Extension for specific steps.

Fbmfox provides many shortcuts to make order management easy. The tool also helps in keeping track of your orders instead of maintaining a separate spreadsheet. It’s important to remember the items must be processed and marked as shipped within your Shop’s established order handling / shipping timelines to receive payment from Facebook for completed orders.
