FACEBOOK MARKET – WHAT IS AND WHY IT IS SO AWESOME! MARKET – WHAT IS AND WHY IT IS SO AWESOME!

Let’s face it, we all love a bargain. Facebook Marketplace is the newest place to go for all of your bargain shopping online and the best thing about it is you can find what you want in the location you want and negotiate a price! Old phrase still sticks, trash one person is another Digital Marketing Company Nottingham treasure. You not only can buy the goods but you can sell them as well and the process is so simple you may not need to use eBay or Gumtree again!

FACEBOOK HISTORY MARKET

Believe it or not, Facebook Marketplace was first released in May 2007, which allows users to post classified ads for free. In 2009 Facebook Marketplace for Oodle transferred ownership. The original Marketplace was closed in November 2014. In October 2016, Australia was among the first in the world to be granted access to the release of a new Facebook Marketplace.

So what exactly FACEBOOK MARKET?

Basically, Facebook Marketplace is a convenient destination to find, buy and sell items with people in your local community. Marketplace makes it easy to find new things that you will love, and find a new home for the things you’re ready to part with. As a fairly new market, Facebook will continue to develop new options and features to make this the best experience for people. Prospective buyers can use the function Marketplace to search for items for sale by category, price or location. To purchase an item, they will then send messages directly to the seller and arrange the details of direct sales.

OK IT SOUNDS GOOD, HOW TO GET IT!?

Facebook Marketplace has been launched for Google Android and Apple iOS apps in Australia, New Zealand, the US, and the UK. If you can not see it in your Facebook app, make sure you have downloaded the latest update! A desktop version of this feature will be launched “in the coming months”.

When you open up you will see an icon at the bottom of the screen. To visit the Marketplace, just tap on the icon at the bottom of the Facebook store app and start exploring!
JOIN FACEBOOK GROUPS

To ensure you find the items locally, it is beneficial to join multiple buy and sell Facebook group. You can look for it on the home screen (not in the market) on your Facebook application and find local city / town followed by a ‘buy and sell’. For example, ‘Sunshine Coast Buy & Sell’ – this should find a sales group that has been established. Ask to join the group and the admin group will accept your invitation.

Personally, I am a member of several groups in my area related to buying and selling like when you’re in the Facebook Marketplace, goods for sale will appear in your search AND when selling goods, you can send your items for sale to all or SOME of these groups at once without having to go to each group separately!

OK I have joined several GROUP – NOW CAN I START BUYING AND SELLING?

Yes! You are ready! Simply click on the icon Marketplace and items sold in your area will appear automatically. You can change the location and number of km that you are willing to travel for items too! Simply click on ‘change’ and turn in here.

You will see some more icons at the top of the page. Here’s what you can do with them:

SALE OF AN ITEM

SELL: (a camera icon) = If you click on this item, you will be automatically redirected to the camera roll on your phone or tablet. This is to upload a picture of the item you want to sell. Alternatively, you can click directly to where it says ‘What are you selling?’ And do it this way. Again, you’ll be taken to your camera roll to select an image. Once you select an image, you will then be asked to give your item titles. This is usually the name of the product / goods of your brand – Eg. Apple iPhone 6 – 32GB

Then you will click next and asked Digital Marketing Companies Nottingham to describe your item, including details such as the condition, size, color and more.
