Development effort and time will vary for each developer depending on their familiarity with Facebook products and APIs, as well as their desired implementation of FBE.

Please note that this estimate is subject to change.

This will include our standard developer platform app review, verification and provisioning of the permissions, verification of FBE configuration and an assessment of the overall app quality.

Once a Pixel or Conversion API is integrated with your Business App, merchants will be able to get set-up with just a few steps. They will then have access to measurement tools to understand the impact of their ads in driving actions on their websites.
Facebook Business Extension is supporting new and existing categories of Business Apps including ecommerce platforms, appointment booking, reservations, food ordering, creative production, platform integrators, and more.
