Read till the end and sell your products in 5 minutes.
Hi, everyone. It’s another great article on how you can make money on Facebook. Facebook has a built-in marketplace where you buy and sell things, and in this article, I’ll show you how you could sell something on there. So if you’re familiar with marketplace like eBay or Craigslist, it kind of works the same way. But I started utilizing it and he ended up getting better results for me than he did on eBay. So I had some items on eBay. I put it on the Facebook marketplace and he sold faster on the marketplace than he did on eBay.
And there are no fees because you’re dealing with people like you do on Craigslist. So you don’t have to pay the fee that eBay takes from you if you sell something on there. So let’s jump into the computer. I want to show you selling an actual item on there, so I’ll show you how to list and then I’ll show you how to post it.
Let’s take a look.
I’ll show you this process on a desktop, then I’ll show you the mobile app version.
On a Desktop
First, we need to go to the marketplace. You can find the Facebook marketplace at the sidebar of your Facebook homepage. Or you could just go to Facebook.com/marketplace. It will take you to the same place. Let me go ahead and click that link. And this is the Facebook marketplace on a desktop. This is what it looks like. You could actually buy any of these items.
And the way it works is it’s not like eBay. You don’t make a bed. And then you don’t get the item via e-mail. You actually meet up with people like you would on Craigslist. So if I wanted any item here, I would contact the seller through messenger and I would buy it. So when you sell something, it’s basically the same process. So you could be on there buying or selling or you could click this link. So this is what I’m going to do.
I’m going to sell something and I’m going to have an item for sale. You could also sell a car here, sell something simple right now. This is the box for selling something. Go ahead and choose a category. So in this case, it’s like trying to come in to sell. And I’m selling a magnetic levitation globe. I’ll show you what that is in a second. But I’m going to type out the description on the description box. You could also look it up to get an idea for price.
So typically, this is selling for twenty-one dollars now. So I’m just going to sell here for nine dollars and I’m going to put my location on the location box. You could describe your item. And then, I’ll upload the pics of the items. I took about four pictures, but you could have up to 10. So I’ll select all the pictures. And once they’re uploaded, I could edit the pictures if I wanted to, just like you would with any Facebook pictures. You can move them around to sort them the way you wanted them to be sorted.
And that’s it. Next, you just got a press post. And just like that, it’s been posted. And once it sells, it will move over to the sold column. You could still go ahead and manage and edit this post if you like what you put here at any time. And once you sell it, because Facebook actually doesn’t know that it’s been sold because it happens in person, you will have to press Mark as sold. And now if you go on there selling, you’ll see everything you have on there for sale and on their buying.
You’ll see everything that you are initiating to buy with a buyer. And on their browse, you could still go and see everything near you. You could change the mile radius. You could change the location. You could shop by category, by price. It’s really a great way to buy things nearby.
On a mobile device.
You can get Facebook marketplace mobile application on stores.
The marketplace actually has an icon right in the middle on the bottom, so right in the center. If I press that, I go to the marketplace.
It’s basically the same marketplace that you saw on the desktop, but on the mobile app, he just has different navigation to it. But the selling process is not that different. So when you’re on the marketplace, right next to your profile picture, it says, what are you listing? If you click there, that’s how you list an item on the mobile app. I’m on a IOS app here and I’ll press item for sale.
So the same process I just went through. Again, what are you selling? So you put a description price category and then you could have a location. And then if you want to ship it, you offer to ship for this item. So you could do that. You don’t have to actually meet with someone in person with a mobile app. You could actually ship it that way and then you could add pictures just the way you did. So I could just add the picture just like I did on the desktop.
And right there I could add multiple pictures and it’ll show up just like that. And then he will say, do you want to share it publicly on the marketplace, on your profile? In this case? I’m just going to press the marketplace and then you could just press post. And that’s all you have to do to post that item.
So to check the progress, all you have to do is go to the store again. So the same page. And on top there, is this icon says you if I click that, it shows all the items that I’m selling. And I actually got a couple message offers already has 17 views already. I let a couple minutes go by before I wrote this section of the article. But 17 views, two offers, and they both agreed to come pick it up.
So whoever offered it to me first, I’m going to go ahead and make the cell with them. But that’s where you could see what items you’re selling or buying right here on the mobile app. And then the messages came from the messenger app. So when I clicked them, it took me over to messenger. So this actually completed. Just to just a few minutes. I had this on eBay for actually ten days and I didn’t get a single offer.
Only six views. This got 17 views. Two offers within basically less than five minutes. I hope this article was helpful. And you could sell something really quick here on the Facebook k marketplace.
