Facebook Dynamic Ads
According to Facebook
Set up dynamic ads once, then let them work for you
Facebook dynamic ads automatically promote products to people who have expressed interest on your website, in your app or elsewhere on the Internet. Simply upload your product catalogue and set up your campaign one time, and it will continue working for you for as long as you want –finding the right people for each product and always using up-to-date pricing and availability.
  • Reach more shoppers: Show people products that are tailored to their interests, whether or not they've been to your site or used your app.
  • Complete the sale: Retarget your website or mobile app shoppers to remind them of items they viewed but didn't buy.
  • Contact people across devices: Reconnect with shoppers on mobile or desktop, wherever they originally shopped.
