KUALA LUMPUR – Facebook today introduced the Marketplace feature in Malaysia and users will be able to discover, buy and sell goods through the social media platform.
Director of product management at Facebook, Karandeep Anand said in a statement, “Already 700 million people buy and sell in groups on Facebook each month. Today, we are excited to bring Marketplace to Malaysia and make it easier to discover, buy and sell goods locally.
“Whether you’re a new parent looking for baby clothes or a collector looking for a rare find, Marketplace makes it easier to buy and sell what you need. People can feel good about buying and selling on Marketplace because it’s easy to view the public profiles of buyers and sellers, your mutual friends, and how long they’ve been on Facebook.”
Marketplace allows users to list and browse items for sale and filter results by location, price and categories such as household, electronics and apparel.
The feature allows buyers and sellers to communicate via the messaging function to make offers and work out transaction details, as Facebook does not facilitate the payment or delivery of items.
With the addition of Malaysia and Indonesia, Marketplace is now available in 70 countries across the world. – BERNAMA
