I am a new retailer and I'm having trouble adding an ad account for my shopify store in Facebook business manager. When I tried to connect my personal Facebook account, there is a promt that says "Ad Account connect failed".
When I log in through Facebook business manager, there is a notification that says "Business Account Restricted From Advertising- You can't use this store to run ads, manage ad accounts or use data sources such as Facebook pixels and offline event sets".
My store has been approved to sell on Facebook and this is my first time setting up so I believe I did not violate any Facebook policies. Any advice on what I can do in the meantime?
PS: I've also created another Facebook account and added that account as admin, when i log in the same message appears.
Thanks for your help!

Exactly the same issue. I only created the Facebook page and connected it to Shopify and within an hour I received the message stating 'This business account isn't allowed to advertise because it didn't comply with our Advertising Policies or other standards. Its ad accounts and other advertising assets have been disabled."
I've read the advertising policies and I can't see how I could have breached it when i have never even had the chance to publish an ad yet!
This is an accepted solution.
I'm having similar issues....I hadn't even posted an ad. Facebook has disabled my business accounts. I also can't switch to professional account in instagram (message says YOU REACHED LIMIT FOR NUMBER OF BUSINESSES YOU CAN CREATE). This all has hindered me from being able to run and post ads. Someone please help. I have appealed to facebook several times with no success. I have even reached out SHOPIFY to see if they could assist...still no help. Can someone please help me as I would just like to get back to working on my business.
