The Facebook For Sale Group has arrived ‘Down Under’. Announced back in February, the new features make buying and selling on Facebook easier. ‘For Sale Group’ members now have a better structure to work with when composing a ‘Buy’ ad. They can now choose the ‘Sell’ feature when creating a post; then add a description, include a price and set a pick-up/delivery location. Sellers will also be able to mark their posts as ‘Available’ or ‘Sold’ which will help keep ‘For Sale Groups’ and their members better informed about which items are for sale and which should be removed.
Facebook has also been testing a new ‘Buy’ button which makes it possible to complete a transaction without leaving the Facebook platform. Coincidence in timing? We think not. Look forward to ‘in app buying’ coming to your mobile soon.
