Facebook launches Marketplace feature in Singapore

Users will be allowed to cross post products in buy and sell groups using their Facebook accounts.

Singapore now has access to Facebook's Marketplace feature, joining 47 countries where the app is available.

According to a press release, Marketplace is a single place on Facebook for discovering, buying, and selling goods locally.

Through the app, users can post products for sale directly or cross post from a buy and sell group.

Whilst searching for a product, a built-in location tool can be used to adjust the region they’re looking in, or switch to a different city altogether.

Users can send the seller a direct message if they're interested to make an offer for the product.

However, Facebook does not facilitate the payment or delivery of items in Marketplace.

Facebook director of product management Karandeep Anand said, "People can feel good about buying and selling on Marketplace because it’s easy to view the public profiles of buyers and sellers, your mutual friends, and how long they’ve been on Facebook.”
