Go to the Facebook Business Manager and click on the three horizontal bars of the menu. Hover over the "All Tools" words and click "Catalogs":

 

 

You can see the list of your Facebook product catalogs: the one made available by Facebook when you added the shop tab and, if it's the case, the catalogs you created by yourself.

The catalog made available by Facebook when you add the "shop" tab on your Page is named "Products for x" where x is the name of your Facebook Page (you will then be able to change the name of the catalog into catalog's settings). Given that it was created by Facebook and not by you, it cannot be selected and its selection box is grayed out:

 

 

This default catalog set by Facebook is already connected to the shop tab of your Page. Then, if you add products in it, they will automatically be visible into the shop tab.

Thanks to this product data feed import, you can also create product ads and dynamic remarketing campaigns. However, you will be able to do this only for the language and the currency of the feed set up. For the dynamic remarketing, remember to install a pixel on your PrestaShop site and to link it to the Facebook catalog you just filled out. To know how create and install a pixel click here.
