Starting today, Facebook’s For Sale Groups will have improved features for buying and selling.
For Sale Group members can now choose the Sell feature when creating a post. You can add a description to what you’re selling, include a price and set a pick-up/delivery location.
Sellers can also mark posts as Available or Sold and easily view their catalog of items previously sold.
These new features are for people like Lisa and Kadu, who are part of the global community who regularly use For Sale Groups.
- Lisa Duncan-Thayer from Florida created Made By Mama Buy/Sell/Trade to sell her crochet work and give other local artisans a place to sell their handmade items. Now with more than 4,500 members in or near Pinellas County, Florida, the group has helped many women turn their hobbies into businesses.
- Professional guitarist Kadu Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro created a Facebook Group to help musicians in Brazil buy and sell instruments. In nearly three years, the group has grown to more than 34,000 members. Not only has the group enabled Kadu to personally buy, sell and trade musical instruments, it’s raised his profile and awareness for his band, Swell.
We will continue to introduce new features in the coming months to help people in the For Sale Group community easily connect, browse and search.
These new features will roll out to all Facebook For Sale Groups in the coming months across iOS, Android and web. Facebook Group admins who would like to participate now can nominate their Group here.
