Having just spent an hour and a half on chat only to find out that changing fb and insta information is not possible until their work is completed I asked how to get a phone call.....are you ready....
Alright so the following are the steps:
another insult...so I requested "Please also suggest to your it support team that a simple button to request a call back once we have logged in would be a much nicer way to treat your paid up clients rather than this insult of a list of instructions".
I've spent over 24 hours with Shopify and yet there is no one who can help.
I received the same instructions this morning. Extremely frustrating. I've used Shopify before in the past and never had any issues. This time around is totally different.
I have a customer who placed on order online through Instagram but I never received a notice from Shopify, only FB.
I keep getting errors that says ORDER IS PENDING ACKNOWLEDGMENT BY SHOPIFY MARKETING.
No one can point me to where i can acknowledge this order so I can get paid and send the item out. There is no place to accept the order.
If you think that's an insult, I had the same experience and then some. I was in the stupid CHAT with this Mook for almost 2 hours after he kept telling me that he had someone that would jump on a call with me after he was done with the current call so I waited another 45 min for that Mook, only to have the first Mook come back to me and say, "Okay, he says he can get to you in an hour, Okay?" Mind you this was already 10pm. Of course I said no forget it and the Mook then says that the only way I can get a Call Back is to "SCHEDULE" one. He asked me what time I would like my call back and I told him 8 am CA time that would make it 11 am EST, (because he said the call was coming from the east coast). I said fine, no problem, he had the nerve to tell me to make sure that my phone line was open & available because he would call exactly at 8 am........ I'M STILL WAITING 1 WEEK LATER FOR THAT FRIGGEN SCHEDULED CALL BACK....
I'm having the same problem. I just opened a Facebook channel, checkout on Facebook. I had a family member order something as a test. The order went through. I received a notice from Facebook, but it never makes it to Shopify. The Facebook order manager says "Order pending acknowledgement by Shopify". Did anyone figure this out for you? I'm waiting on a callback from Shopify. I also seem to be having trouble with the Amazon channel today. An order isn't flowing to Shopify.
Basically they have not been able to fix this issue. I had three orders months ago. They said pending ackgnowledgement by shopify. Contacted Shopify several times. 21 emails between me and someone named Derek in tech. They basically have not been able to fix the problrem. And there is no way to undo the facebook shop so the orders just ended up being cancelled. Very frustrating! I basically gave up and just stopped selling online until they fix the issue.
Copy of last email. In July! Guess he is still at work lol.
I've reached out to our devs handling the communication with Facebook on this matter. Definitely hoping to hear more about this soon. If I hear back on anything at all regarding this today I'll be sure to let you know before I leave.

No, two months in and it's still not resolved. Shopify was fairly responsive from the beginning. They maintain the problem is on the Facebook side, and my instinct tends to agree. There's no trace of the orders hitting the Shopify API. Facebook support was just awful. I mean astoundingly awful. Zero assistance. Week after week of saying they are looking into it. I finally switched course and put in Facebook tickets to have the orders simply deleted or cleared so that I could try uninstalling the Facebook sales channel and reinstalling. It took a couple weeks, but Facebook finally did delete the stuck pending orders from commerce manager. I was able to reinstall and relink on the Shopify side. Now my problem is waiting for Facebook to approve my store so that I can test orders and the Shopify sync. I'm two weeks into that wait. It's infuriating. If it doesn't work, I give up.
