If you do not save your settings in Webflow, the data feed will fail to sync products to Facebook.

Connecting the data feed to your Facebook product catalog

If you don’t already have a Facebook product catalog, create a product catalog in Facebook Business Manager. As you’re creating the catalog, they’ll ask you how you’d like to add products. Choose the “Upload product info” option.
