The Beginner’s Guide to Selling on Facebook Marketplace

3 mins read

Facebook Marketplace is a platform that allows users to buy and sell items locally or from businesses. It’s a convenient and easy way to get rid of items you no longer need or to find new things for your home, all within the Facebook app. Here’s how you can sell your items on Facebook Marketplace:

  1. Make sure you have a Facebook account. In order to use Facebook Marketplace, you’ll need to have a Facebook account and be logged in. If you don’t already have an account, you can create one for free on the Facebook website.
  2. Access Facebook Marketplace. There are a few different ways to access Facebook Marketplace:
    • From the Facebook app on your phone: Tap the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner (up right corner on Android), then tap “Marketplace.”
    • From the Facebook website: Click the “Marketplace” icon on the left-hand side of the screen.
  3. Create a listing. Once you’re on the Marketplace homepage, click the “Sell” button in the top left corner just below the Marketplace heading on Android (or the “Create new listing” button on the left side of the desktop version website). Then, follow the prompts to create a listing for your item. You’ll need to provide a few details, such as the item’s name, price, and condition, as well as some photos. Make sure to provide as much detail as possible so that potential buyers have a good understanding of what they’re buying.
  4. Set up payment and shipping. When you create your listing, you’ll have the option to specify whether you want to sell the item locally or ship it. If you choose to ship the item, you’ll need to provide a shipping price. If you choose to sell the item locally, you’ll need to specify whether you want to meet the buyer in person or have them pick the item up from your location.
  5. Wait for a buyer. Once your listing is live, it will be visible to other users on Facebook Marketplace. When someone is interested in buying your item, they’ll send you a message through the Marketplace messaging system. You can then communicate with the buyer and make arrangements for payment and pickup or delivery.
  6. Complete the transaction. Once you’ve agreed on a price and the buyer has paid you, it’s time to hand over the item. If you’re meeting in person, make sure to meet in a public place for your own safety. If you’re shipping the item, make sure to package it well and send it off as soon as possible. Once the item has been delivered and the buyer is satisfied, the transaction is complete!

Summing up

Selling items on Facebook Marketplace is a simple and convenient way to get rid of things you no longer need or to find new items for your home. By following the above steps, you’ll be able to successfully sell your items and make some extra cash.
