About a Facebook Test Group

A Facebook test group gives retailers an opportunity to test out CommentSold social selling features in a controlled space that isn't accessible to shoppers.

It's perfect for retailers who want to try out shoppable posts and/or live selling for the first time, and retailers who want to experiment with different types of posts and media before posting to their live page or group(s).

How a Facebook Test Group Benefits Your Business

  • Test out linking products and/or product selections in your test group before posting to your live group.
  • Experiment with different posts, graphics, and more so you feel confident about how it looks before you post to your live group.
  • Pre-record live sales using your test group, download the video, and schedule it to post to your live Facebook group and/or page when your business is busy, closed, or you're away on vacation.
