I have products in Woocommerce on my website, that I sync using the plugin with my Facebook shop.
When I sell an item, as each is unique, I change the category in Woocommerce. This new category is one that I have excluded from syncing with Facebook.
Once I’ve changed the category I am unable to update the product due to the plugin as it tells me that category will not sync and only gives me the option of cancelling it going to the plugin settings to remove the category from not syncing.
One work around is to remove the exclusion, update product, go and put the exclusion back in. Very very cumbersom to have to do this every single time I sell something.
Other option seems to be to change the facebook setting for that one product to “Do not sync”. However, this then means I have to go and manually delete the product on FB. It also seems ridiculous to be able to set a category to not sync but then have to go and do all this manually.
Third option, though I’ve not tried it, would be to change the FB setting to “Synb and hide in catelog”. That’s no good as it means the catalog gets clogged up with multiple products that no longer exist.
What should happen is when I change the category to one I don’t want sync’d with FB it should simply remove the product from the FB catelog. At present I have to take multiple steps to achieve what should be a simple task.
I am using the current version of Woocommerce, WordPress and the plugin.
Can this please be fixed as this is a great plugin overall but with this limitation is a pain.
