Facebook doesn’t stop surprising us with their plays, this time, it has done in your app for IOS. The Social Network has always been a good place to sell your products, even though it is limited to your followers and friends. But of course, Facebook could not be left behind in another market of blatant form and this has been the result.
The Social Network Blue has created an online shop where you can sell your products to the general public of Facebook, that at all in a little.
The store of Facebook steals the site to messenger
Facebook is the place where people connect, in recent years people have used Facebook to something more: Buy and sell with each other. This activity was initiated in the facebook groups and has been growing uncontrollably.
More than 450 million people visit groups of purchase and sale of products every month from families in the neighborhood to vendors around the world.
To help the people has to extend those connections, Facebook has decided to introduce “marketplace”, a place to discover, buy and sell goods with the people around you (and those of his around too).
Facebook is not Amazon
Not everything is so cute how facebook sells us, because if you decide to buy or sell anything, you simply must send a direct message from marketplace to the seller to tell you that you are interested. From this point of contact, you can work out the details as you: phone, messages or email.
But, there’s always a but, Facebook does not take part in the transactions or delivery of goods, Facebook is not Amazon. Has preferred to capture the process of business of vibbo or wallapop.
How to sell Products
To sell the products you simply have to:
- Take a picture of the object or add it from the gallery.
- Enter the name of the product, a description and a price.
- Confirm your location and select a category.
- Publish it.
Little by little facebook will be introducing this functionality country by country, all that’s left is to wait until I get to Spain to see how it works.
