Discovering items

When we click on the Marketplace, a list of selling items will appear. We can filter the items by location and category and can find specific item by search located at the top. We can also browse Household, Electronics, Apparel, and whatever, which is available in a variety of categories. For switching to a different city and to adjust the region which we are looking in, we can use the built-in location tool.

If we want to know more about the item, name, product description, profile photo of the seller, and the general location of the seller, we have to tap or click on the image of the item. If we want to save the item or share the item with another, it is possible by the Save and Share option.

If we are sure to purchase the item from the seller, we will send a direct message from the Marketplace to inform that we are interested and make an offer. From that point, the seller and we can work out the details in any way we choose. The drawback of the Facebook Marketplace is that the payment or delivery of items in the Marketplace is not possible.
