Costa Rica News – Facebook has launched “Marketplace” in Costa Rica. This function is already active in 37 countries.
It allows people to buy and sell locally. Of course, people already use Facebook groups to do so but Marketplace makes it much easier.
Marketplace was started in 2016. In May of 2017, 18 million new items were published in the Marketplace in the US alone. The goods most frequently sold and bought are vehicles, furniture and electronics.
To use it, interested parties simply click or touch the Marketplace icon, which is now visible in the social network. To find an article you can filter results by location, category or price. To sell, you just upload a picture, description and price.
The platform facilitates easy communication through the Facebook Messenger application.
Additionally, Facebook offers support to users to learn how to operate Marketplace securely. There are privacy controls and easy reporting tools.
