Seems like it's old.

Why Aren't More People Using Facebook Marketplace?

As far as local things for sale.. anything else compare?

It's a pitty that facebook doesn't make more out of this. They would truly have the power to become a big player in the market.

If only Facebook Marketplace had a way people can process payments through Paypal or some other processing center.

I really do not like to take my time to travel places to meet up with people only for them to ask my 50 questions, tell me they only have a portion of the asking price, then not want to buy it.

It can be a complete waste of time.

I don't either. I have social anxiety and it's very awkward for me to meet people.

Yea, Ive done this before on craigslist. You get there and people are like man I only have such and such amount. Will you take that? I guess you just have to price accordingly.

Facebook Marketplace shipping is limited to select sellers, though they claim it will be opening up in 2020.

How is Facebook Marketplace going to overtake Ebay and Amazon, if sellers with well established personal accounts and a good history of local sales cannot list items with shipping? I cannot list a single item with shipping on Facebook Marketplace, as it only allows me to list locally. I was going to buy stock in Facebook until I learned that hardly any sellers can list with shipping.

When will Facebook wise up to take advantage of the Facebook 5% commission fee on shipping secure transaction, versus Ebay/PayPal 13% and Amazon 15%? Someone please tell me how to contact Mark Zuckerberg to ask when they will opening up Facebook Marketplace shipping to more than select sellers will boost Facebook profits, sales and threaten Ebay and Amazon. Forget Craigslist, Mercari, OfferUp, LetGo, Varage Sale..
