Facebook Continues Being BRUTAL With It’s Competition

Now, the Marketplace icon appears along the app’s bottom toolbar, in place of the Messenger icon (which is now to the left of the search bar). The general menu will show you items for sale in your area. You can change your location and filter items by price and category (for example, furniture versus clothing).

One very noticeable, missing tool: the ability to filter from lowest price to highest (or vice versa). You can choose to see all items under $500, for example, but you might have to scroll awhile to find the results that are the lowest price and in the best condition. It’s annoying but will hopefully be addressed in updates to the app.

When you want to create a new posting, you just name your item, upload a picture from your camera roll, and enter a brief description. The main Marketplace page has a Sell button in the upper toolbar and a search-bar-like area (“What are you selling?”) where you can create a listing —  you’ll never have trouble figuring out how to sell something.

When you see a product you like, you can make an offer or message the seller for more information.

You’ll also see a map of where the item is for sale (very similar to Craigslist) and can get additional information about the seller, including any mutual friends you might have. The latter can be useful in making sure the seller isn’t a sketchy scam artist or thief.

When you make an offer, you can either go with what the seller has specified as the sale price or try to negotiate a lower cost. From there, you can message back and forth with the seller to determine where and when you’ll pick the item up.

Facebook doesn’t facilitate payment, but you can always use the peer-to-peer feature in Facebook Messenger to send money and simplify the process.
