Setting the Campaign - Pop-up
You will have to go through this step if the connection with Facebook is not configured or if it has timed out.
At this point, the browser should produce a pop-up that will test the connection with Facebook. In it, you will log in to your Facebook account and grant permission for the app to post to your Facebook pages.
This is a necessary step, and you must log in to an account which has permission to post content on your store's Facebook Page.
Important: If the pop-up doesn't appear or if there's no notification, it's likely that the browser blocked it. In that case, please check the browser's configuration. Quick reference for some popular browsers: Chrome , Firefox , Internet Explorer 11.
