How to Open Facebook Marketplace?

Marketplace is available in the Facebook app and on desktops and tablets. Look for the
Marketplace button at the bottom of the app on iOS or at the top of the app on Android. If using a web browser, you can find Marketplace on the left side of the Facebook page.

What kinds of items do people buy and sell?

You can find items from clothes to TVs and even cars and real estate. People sell used and new items and it’s easy to find listings within your local area. Buying and selling are simple, and you can connect with others and see items in person before you buy. For more information, check the Facebook commerce policy.

Safety

People can only see the information that you publicly share on Facebook. You get to decide how much information to share. Use Facebook Messenger or communicate via Marketplace to avoid spam and phishing. Don’t share your personal or bank information. f you have an issue with a person or an item that’s listed, such as violating community standards, harassing behavior or scams, it’s easy to report to Facebook. Just look for a Report link on the item page or on the seller/buyer’s Marketplace profile.
