It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on the status of Facebook Shops, which it first announced would be ‘coming soon’ back in May. But today, Facebook has unloaded a bunch of new updates for its eCommerce tools, which will provide businesses with more ways to connect with customers, and sell direct on both Facebook and Instagram.
