DROPSHIPPING ACADEMY – How to use Facebook Marketplace?

Ever thought of using Facebook as a springboard for your online business and sales? Maybe you have but it looked like something so difficult to do, that you immediately gave up. Well, your mistake…

Marketplace is a convenient destination for people to discover, buy and sell items.

People can find what they’re looking for by filtering their results by location, category and price.

Here’s everything you need to know about how to list the products you’ll be dropshipping on Facebook Marketplace!

It’s not an easy task to do at first, but with the help of this step-by-step guide on how to successfully list your products you’ll make sales in no time!

So how to list an item on Facebook Marketplace?

  1. Click on the Marketplace icon, then tap the “sell” or “sell something” button: select the type of item, then take a photo of your item (or you can select more than one from your gallery), and then click the “add photos” option to upload them.
  2. Enter an item title, description and price: as when selling via a group, include all relevant details to attract interest, then set an asking price.
  3. Confirm your location: (this is how buyers browse items on Marketplace). Don’t worry, it won’t reveal your exact address, only a rough location.
  4. Select a category of item. Buyers can also filter listings by these.
  5. When you’re done, click “Post”: your listing immediately goes into the Marketplace!

You can keep track of your listings by going to the Selling section of Marketplace (click Selling in the left-hand menu) where you can see all the items you have listed for sale.

When you sell something, click the blue “Mark as Sold” button to take it off the Marketplace. Click the “Manage” button to open a menu where you can either delete the listing entirely or edit it.

Facebook Marketplace offers an easy way to help increase the discovery of a brand and its products:

  • retailers will be able to get their brand and products into the Marketplace .
  • Facebook Marketplace highlights products relevant to consumers, helping your business find the right customers.

This helps ensure that your product is being seen by the right audience, resulting in an increased opportunity that the interaction will lead to a purchase.
