Facebook Marketplace rolls out in Hong Kong
Facebook Marketplace has launched in Hong Kong, allowing users to easily find, buy and sell goods locally.
Already 550 million people buy and sell in groups on Facebook each month. With Marketplace, it is easier to both sell and buy. Users can view the public profiles of buyers and sellers, their mutual friends, and how long they have been on Facebook.
FeedMarketplace shows items relevant to users’ interests and available in their community. Similarly, by tapping on the Marketplace icon, users can post products for sale directly or cross-post from a buy-and-sell group.
Users can search for specific items and filter results by location, category or price. Images can be tapped to show more details, and items can be saved for later perusal.
Interested buyers can directly contact the seller by message and make an offer. Facebook does not handle payments or deliveries.
To sell an item, users simply take a photo, describe the item and set their.
Hong Kong joins 64 countries where Marketplace is available.
