How To Get Facebook Marketplace

Facebook Marketplace is a virtual marketplace where users can buy, sell and trade items with other people in their local community. It presents a convenient venue to see what’s available in your area, save money on new-to-you items, and make a little cash on things you no longer need. But how do you get Facebook Marketplace if you don’t already have it? In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process.

Accessing Facebook Marketplace on a Desktop

On a desktop or laptop, getting Facebook Marketplace is straightforward. Here’s how:

  1. First, open your web browser and navigate to the Facebook website.
  2. Log into your Facebook account. If you don’t have one, create a new Facebook account and make sure you’ve confirmed your email address or phone number.
  3. On the left side of your Facebook homepage, look for the “Marketplace” icon. It looks like a small shop.
  4. Click on the icon, and you’ll be taken directly to Facebook Marketplace.

Accessing Facebook Marketplace on a Mobile Device

For those who prefer to use Facebook on their mobile devices, you can access the Facebook Marketplace through the Facebook app. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Facebook app on your smartphone or tablet. If you don’t have the app, you can download it from the App Store or Google Play Store.
  2. Log into your Facebook account.
  3. At the top of the app, tap on the three horizontal lines (also known as the “hamburger” icon).
  4. Scroll down until you see “Marketplace” and tap on it. Again, this icon looks like a small shop.

Now you have easy access to Facebook Marketplace, a world of local buying, selling, and trading at your fingertips!

A Few Things to Note

  • Facebook Marketplace is not available to new Facebook accounts. This is a precaution Facebook takes to protect the integrity of the marketplace and its users.
  • If you’re having trouble accessing Facebook Marketplace, try updating your Facebook app for the latest features.
