In an attempt to expand its reach and functionality in an increasingly growing market, Facebook recently updated its iOS app and unveiled the much-anticipated Marketplace feature. These days, selling new, used, and refurbished products from person to person is very common, and websites like Craiglist are very popular. So, if you have items you no longer use and want to sell for cash, take a picture with your iPhone or iPad and upload it to the Facebook Marketplace. It was previously possible to sell merchandise on Facebook, but the target audience was much smaller, consisting mainly of groups, families, and friends of friends. When you use Marketplace, your goods are visible to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Facebook users. You can use filters to see what’s for sale in your region, or you can use other parameters to refine your search.
Availability of Facebook Marketplace
First and foremost, you should be conscious that, due to its newness, this feature will not be available globally right away. In addition to the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, Facebook Marketplace is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. In the coming months, we’ll add more countries to the list, and we’ll let you know when that happens. You should also be aware that the buy/sell feature is only available on the mobile app right now. iOS and Android are the two operating systems that are supported. In the near future, Marketplace will also have a web version.
Installing the Facebook Marketplace
The FB Marketplace product, unlike Facebook Messenger, does not come with a standalone app. The social media behemoth does not seem to want to spread its users through many apps. Simply download the most recent Facebook version from the App Store to gain Marketplace access on your iPhone or iPad. You’ll need to use the software from a country that supports the most recent buy-and-sell platform, of course.
Tap the icon to access the Facebook Marketplace.
How to Begin Using Facebook Marketplace
Open the Facebook app on your iPhone after you’ve installed Marketplace on your iOS device, and search for the menu bar in the footer. There’s a new icon in the middle of the array that looks like a show-window. The buy/sell portal appears when you press it.
How to Make the Most of Facebook Marketplace
The Marketplace home screen includes a search bar, four quick action buttons (Sell, Categories, Search, Your Products), an available items section, and the Facebook app footer menu bar, which allows you to return to your News Feed, Timeline, Notifications, or Settings. Obviously, Marketplace products that match your search terms are excluded from the Search feature. You can also find more offers by searching by category or simply swiping the product view.
Tip: If you get an offer for a sold product or a seller responds to one of your offers, you’ll get a Facebook notification, and the Marketplace icon will have a badge indicating how many notifications are awaiting your involvement.

Fact: It’s important to remember that Facebook just acts as a link between buyer and seller. The social media platform stays out of the talks and doesn’t charge a fee on any transactions. However, we expect Facebook to monetize Marketplace by featured listings and other similar methods.
