The new Shop section on Facebook Business Pages make it easy for desktop and mobile users to browse your products and seamlessly checkout right from your Facebook Business Page. It also includes a new subscribe button, that notifies you customers when you add new products.
For desktop users, the Shop section appears to the left of your timeline. Mobile users will see it as they scroll down your page. Here's how it looks on MVMT's page:

Now that you’ve successfully added the Shop section to your Facebook page, you’ll need to decide which of your product collections to sell. You can choose from any of your existing collections or create a new one from scratch to feature your best-sellers, sale items, or newest additions.
When creating a new collection, don’t forget to make it visible to your Shop section by ticking the checkbox highlighted below:
How do Facebook users checkout?
You can let customers purchase using your store's branded checkout, or if you're a merchant in the US using Shopify Payments, your customers can check out directly on Facebook.
That's all there is to it!
