We will give you tips on how to take good pictures of your items, what kind of information to include in your posts, and how to handle negotiations. Let’s get started!
FACEBOOK ACCOUNT AND ONLINE STORE NAME
If you want to sell on Facebook Marketplace, you will need a Facebook account. You will also need to create an online store name. This is the name that will appear on your posts and that people will search for when they are looking for items that you are selling. Choose a name that is easy to remember and spell. You may want to include your name or the type of items that you sell in your store name. For example, “John’s Marketplace” or “Sandy’s Antiques.”
TAKE GOOD PICTURE OF YOUR ITEMS
When you take pictures of your items, make sure they are well-lit and in focus. If you have multiple items for sale, take a picture of each item individually. You want potential buyers to be able to see what they are buying, so don’t try to cram too many things into one photo.
DESCRIPTION OF THE ITEMS YOU ARE SELLING
Include information such as the dimensions, condition, material, etc. Be as thorough as possible so that there are no surprises for the buyer. If you have any unique features or details about the item, be sure to mention those as well!
PRICING YOUR ITEMS
Start by doing some research on similar items that have been sold on Marketplace. This will give you a good idea of what buyers are willing to pay. When pricing your items, be sure to account for shipping costs if you are selling to buyers who are not local. It is also important to be flexible with your pricing. Buyers will often try to negotiate, so be prepared to haggle a bit.
JOIN A LOCAL SELL GROUPS
This is a great way to find buyers in your area. People are always looking for good deals on things, and by joining these groups, you will be able to reach a larger audience.
RENEW YOUR LISTINGS
One of the best ways to sell items on Facebook Marketplace is to renew your listings often. This will ensure that your items are seen by the most people possible, and it also shows potential buyers that you are serious about selling. To renew your listing, simply go to the listing page and click on the “renew” button. You can renew your listing once every 24 hours, so make sure to do it as often as you can!
MAKING THE SALE
When you have found a buyer who is interested in your item, it is time to make the sale! Be sure to agree on a price, shipping method, and payment method before completing the transaction. Always recommend meeting in a public place for both the buyer and seller’s safety. Once the buyer has paid and taken possession of the item, be sure to leave feedback for each other on Marketplace.
So what are you waiting for? Make the most of Facebook Marketplace and make some extra money. Follow the tips of this online yard sale platform. Happy selling!
