The Marketplace removes the drudgery associated with buying items from different sources. Items available for sale are clearly listed for your perusal and to get any one of your choosing.
With the Marketplace, one is exposed to a wide variety of items from different sellers online where one can easily negotiate on and acquire at the right price without the need to visit a shopping mall.
Both sellers and buyers which use the Facebook Marketplace enjoy some benefits which other sites/apps offering the same services do not give. Apart from getting easy access to a wide range of prospective buyers, it also lets people enjoy the services it offers without any services charges.
How to Download the Marketplace App
Unlike the other e-commerce apps and services, you don’t have to download the Facebook Marketplace app. In fact, I don’t think it qualifies to be labelled as an “app” per se, since it is basically a feature incorporated into the Facebook app. This means that, as far as you have the Facebook app, you can enjoy the Marketplace services anytime you want, with no supplementary downloads required.
How to Find the Facebook Marketplace
As previously stated, the Facebook Marketplace is incorporated into the Facebook app and seeing as the Facebook app is available to both iOS and Android users, this service is open to pretty much everybody.
To find and use this service, follow the steps below;
- Login to your account using the Facebook app.
- You will observe a “shop-looking” icon on the left side of the page. This is the Marketplace icon. Click on it.
Once opened, there are four (4) options to select from depending on if you’re planning to make a sale or buy an item. These options include, “Sell”, “Categories”, “Search” and “Your Items”.
If you’re set on selling, of course the appropriate option to select would be the “Sell” option. For buyers, the option to select would be the “Categories” and/or “Search” options to find items of their choice to buy.
