    Hi @islamfotouh,

    Typically, this error is caused by not allowing Facebook to ‘manage your business’. During the connection process, make sure that this option is selected as shown in this screenshot.

    I hope this helps!

    Please let me know if you need further assistance.

    Hi @islamfotouh

    It may be that your currency is not supported. If your WooCommerce default currency is not on this list, some folks have had success temporarily changing their currency to a supported one (USD, CAD, GBP, EUR) to connect and then changing it back afterward. However, this isn’t an officially recommended workaround so we can’t guarantee that it will work.

    My currency is Egyption pound and already supported, but also i tried to change the site currency to USD and same error

    Hi @islamfotouh. The next thing to try is to reset the external business ID and re-connect your site to Facebook. Here are the steps:

    1. Go to https://<your-site>/wp-admin/options.php
    2. Search for wc_facebook_external_business_id
    3. Update the field to include only ASCII characters and save. The best practice here is to use store-name-dfsdc3lck9k6q ← 13-digit random string. Make sure there are no special characters in the name.
    4. Go back to WooCommerce > Facebook and click “Get Started” again

    Ohhh my god!! This solution workeeeed!! Finallyy!!
    Thank you so much!!!!

    Hi @islamfotouh. If you can’t change the value in the options.php page, you can search for the value and update it in the wp_options table.

    @junkojiri, please try this as well. If it doesn’t help, please start a new thread so we can help you individually.

    Hi, @islamfotouh!

    I’m glad you’re finally able to connect your site to your Facebook account!

    As for the missing events, can you check what information the Pixel Helper gives when you click “Troubleshoot Pixel”?

    When events aren’t tracked, it may be due to third-party plugins that are interfering with WooCommerce’s default functionality. For example, the AddToCart event may not be tracked if you’re using a plugin to redirect to the cart page after adding a product to the cart. In that case, you would need to use a snippet like this: https://gist.github.com/simonporter007/ad6b923c08672976a0ce05a5fb1a36a0

    Can you check if you perhaps have any such plugins on your site?
