Facebook Launches Their Own Marketplace

Compare Guru
2016-10-04
Breaking News: Facebook launches their very own marketplace. And it’s easy to use! Read more on how to buy and sell through Facebook below.

More than 450 million people visit buy-and-sell groups on Facebook each month according to a press release issued by the popular social network.

In order to better take advantage of this massive selling potential, the company has introduced Marketplace, a convenient destination to discover, buy and sell items.

To visit Marketplace, just tap on the shop icon at the bottom of the Facebook app and start exploring.

Discover Items for Sale Near You

Marketplace opens with photos of items that people near you have listed for sale. To find something specific, search at the top and filter your results by location, category or price. You can also browse what’s available in a variety of categories such as Household, Electronics and Apparel. Use the built-in location tool to adjust the region you’re looking in, or switch to a different city altogether. When you find something interesting, tap on the image to see more details from the seller. These include a product description, the name and profile photo of the seller, and their general location. You can also save the item to find it later. pdp_us Decided that you want it? Send the seller a direct message from Marketplace to tell them you’re interested and make an offer. From that point on, you and the seller can work out the details in any way you choose. Facebook only operates as a "middleman", of sorts, and does not facilitate the payment or delivery of items in Marketplace. messaging_us

Post Items for Sale in Just a Few Steps

Selling an item in Marketplace is just as easy as browsing for one. These are the steps:
  1. Take a photo of your item, or add it from your camera roll
  2. Enter a product name, description and price
  3. Confirm your location and select a category
  4. Post

To keep track of all of your current and past transactions in Marketplace, visit the 'Your Items' section. There, you can view your saved items, products you’ve posted for sale, and all your messages with people.

Now in Four Countries, With More to Come

Over the next few days, Marketplace will be rolling out to everyone who is over 18 years old in the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand, on the Facebook app for iPhone and Android. The company says that they will continue expanding to additional countries and make Marketplace available on the desktop version of Facebook "in the coming months".
