Facebook is the number one social networking site in the world with over 2 billion users. The platform was created by its founder Mark Zuckerberg primarily for connecting people. However, recently, the platform introduced the Facebook marketplace feature. This simply means that Facebook is not a place where friends meet and share memories together but users can now sell in the Facebook marketplace other known as Facebook Online store.
Facebook Marketplace Eligibility – Facebook Online Store Community Access
I know a lot of people are excited about Facebook marketplace community feature, probably thinking about how they could start shopping immediately. Sorry to announce that the Facebook online store is available only in 70 countries and for old Facebook users. Meaning that users who just sign up on the Facebook platform are not allowed access into the marketplace for fraudulent reasons.
Sell In Facebook Marketplace Feature – How does Facebook Marketplace Works
Facebook marketplace is a digital online store just like Amazon. The difference is that buying and selling on the platform is wholly controlled by users of the platform not Facebook its self. Simply put, users display or list items they want to sell and people in their area can find the items and place an order to buy.
The amazing thing is that buying and selling on the Facebook marketplace community is free but you will need a Facebook account and to be signed in to access the marketplace community.
