    Odoo Facebook Catalog Integration

    INTRODUCTION

    To run Ads using the Facebook campaign you need to first bring your product data to Facebook Catalog Manager. Facebook Catalog manager stores all the information about your product such as price, brand, type, category, description, etc. And Odoo Facebook Catalog Integration module allows you to upload Odoo product data to Facebook Catalog.

    With the Odoo Facebook Catalog Integration module, you can upload the product data using product feeds. The module automatically creates XML feed depending upon the conditions you set. This feed can then be uploaded directly to the Facebook Catalog.
