Where do you make most of your sales from, your Facebook Shop or your Website?

Definitely, from the website. By a massive, massive, margin.

That is great news. I have the option at the moment to set up a Facebook store via the company I build my websites with. I was just wondering which would be better or to just try both.

Do both - even if one only brings in 20% of the other that is still a worthy contribution!

Also I imagine if you are starting from scratch and promote heavily via Facebook then a Facebook store may be more effective but the only way to know is to test and then test some more and then some more!

When I looked into do the same I was told that people use Facebook for socialising not to do shopping.

I guess it comes down to what you are selling.

Facebook is not good for building sales. It is more about branding and social interactions with potential customers/fans. I'd suggest LinkedIn for building b2b sales or your website for real sales instead.

I agree, carry on with the FAcebook shop but still edvote your time and effort to your website store as this is most likely to bring in the highest ROI
