Facebook Marketplace; The Latest Way To Buy And Sell On Facebook

buy-and-sell-with-your-local-community-facebook-market-placeIf all you use your Facebook account for is just to connect with friends, share pictures, like videos and comments but not making money; then you need to change NOW. If you are here and you are not making money with your Facebook then Facebook is no longer for people like you anymore – sorry.

However, it is important to clarify my notion here. I am not saying it’s your fault if you are not making money with facebook I am only saying it is foolishness not to be making serious efforts on how to make money with your Facebook account; we were there before – stop wasting battery and mb. Maybe your reason for not making money with Facebook was because of the level of information you had. That was why Oyinbo people talk say Right Information is power! It is a pity that some of the information are indeed obsolete and irrelevant in today’s market.

Although Facebook use to be a place where people connect, but recently, Facebook introduced their own marketplace, an opportunity to buy and sell with people in your community. This activity started in Facebook Groups and has grown substantially. More than 450 million people visit buy and sell groups each month — from families in a local neighborhood to collectors around the world.

This works like a classified advertisements website that advertised electronics, housing, pets, cars, apparels, wanted items, events and everything in between. Marketplace makes it easy to find new things you’ll love, and find a new home for the things you’re ready to part with. To visit Marketplace, just tap on the shop icon at the bottom of the Facebook app and start exploring.


To sell on Marketplace, all you have to do is take a photo of your item or add it from your camera roll, enter a product name, description and price, confirm your location and select a category and then post. You can also choose to post to Marketplace and a specific buy and sell group at the same time.

It is considerably easy for buyers. 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, including 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.

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 does not facilitate the payment or delivery of items in Marketplace.

A word is enough for the wise!

    • @Steven, I am not sure if this feature is available on IPad IOS; It is an OS issue. However, I think you should try and update the Facebook app on your IPad maybe it will help. Thanks for visiting earnbase.
