The Facebook Marketplace was launched one year ago to facilitate smooth buying and selling of products between individuals within the same geographical location. The idea of starting a marketplace was as a result of the many buying and selling groups on the giant social network.
According to statistics, at least 450 million people use Facebook groups for buying and selling every month. The primary motive behind the establishment of the marketplace was to allow individuals within the same local community engage in trading while removing the uncertainties of some websites such as eBay.
Currently, the Marketplace service which is part of the Facebook mobile app is available in the U.S, U.K, New Zealand, and Australia. You will post whatever that you are selling and interested buyers contact you. You can then receive your payment via Facebook or any other way you will agree with the buyer. Although the service isn’t perfect, it is a great place where you can sell your old gadget and earn some extra cash.
