Facebook Marketplace: Are you looking for a place to buy and sell goods, you are in the right place. Facebook marketplace is a feature within the main Facebook app that you can use to buy and sell goods. The marketplace made it easy to see free and paid-for items that are around where you live - and around the stuff, you`re interested in.
This article is all you need to know about Facebook Marketplace.

Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is a free feature on the Facebook app, it is used to trade, buy, and sell items like electronics, vehicles, and furniture, with locals in your region. The marketplace offers users all kinds of things, whether it`s a car, furniture for your home, or an actual piece of property on the market to purchase.

However, not every Facebook user has access to the Marketplace. If you can`t access the Marketplace, there are a number of reasons why you can`t access it. Here are some of the reasons:

Before you start selling, ensure that you prepare your store for the sync by making sure your inventory is up-to-date and accurate. From your control panel;
