You can use Marketplace for iPhone 5 or later, Android and iPad with the Facebook app, or on your desktop at www.facebook.com/marketplace if you are in any of those countries.
Since Facebook continues to grow and enhance the marketplace aggressively, they are increasingly opening up access to the marketplace. This means that, right now the marketplace is not open to everyone.
To use Marketplace, you need to:
1. Not be new to Facebook.
To help protect the Marketplace community from scams, accounts that have been created recently can’t use Marketplace. If you recently created your account, check back later to see if you have access. In the meantime, you can still use buy and sell groups.
2. Be in a location where Marketplace is available.
If you live in (or recently traveled to) a location where Marketplace isn’t available, you won’t be able to use Marketplace.
- Keep in mind that after you’ve returned from traveling, Facebook’s system may still think you’re located somewhere else for a few days.
3. Be 18 years or older.
4. Use Facebook in one of these languages.
To use Marketplace, make sure you’re using Facebook in one of these languages below:
- French and French Canadian
- Indonesian (bahasa)
- Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese
5. Use the latest version of the Facebook app:
Facebook Marketplace isn’t available on older versions of the Facebook app, or on iPhone models older than the iPhone 5.
