Selling on Marketplace – Marketplace is a feature on the most popular social Media, Facebook. It is an online market as the name implies, where buying, selling, and exploring several items happen.
Facebook as a brand is already a well know brand with billions of users all across the world which means that doing business on the Marketplace by selling items you do not need anymore should come at ease.
Selling on Marketplace is one of the most convenient ways you can possibly earn money off of things or items that you are tired of but still holds value. This is because of the already existing pool of users on the social media platform, these also include business groups on Facebook where you can still advertise the items you will like to sell.
The Facebook Marketplace hosts over 800 million people from all over the world monthly to buy, sell or explore items. Based on the social media platform commerce policies, Facebook approves listings (i.e. items to be sold).
This means that literally anyone can get to sell items on the Marketplace as long as you have a Facebook account. Below are the required information by Facebook for every listing;
- What you are selling
- 10 images of the products.
Once this above-required information have been provided to Facebook, you can now post the items you have up for sale as well as share the post to a targeted audience in Facebook groups.
This is important to fetch more buyers. The Facebook marketplace makes use of the Facebook Messenger as a means of communication which helps to build a trustworthy working relationship between both parties involved.
