The Facebook shop feature is a feature that is unique to Facebook pages alone. So therefore for you to able to make use of this feature you must own a Facebook page or at least be the admin of a Facebook page. You can only make use of this feature on Facebook if you have a Facebook page, yes. And you can only have a Facebook page if you are an active registered user of the Facebook community platform.
