What is Product Catalog

A catalog in Business Manager holds a file that contains a list of all the products you want to advertise. This file is called a data feed. Each line of the catalog contains a description of each item, including an ID, name, category, availability, product URL, image URL and other product attributes.

Use the app for Facebook to upload the Product Catalog. See the detailed instructions in the article about Facebook shop
