This is a big one. Facebook marketplace is an important tool for selling and finding the right people to sell to. But it also makes it difficult for sellers to connect with buyers because of all the filters on the site.
Facebook has been hard-blocking sellers. The reason for that is to prevent sellers from spamming the site, so the buyer can’t just buy from any seller. It also filters out all the bad sellers (like scam artists) and filters out what they want to see (like spammy ads). So it’s a very complicated situation that means that a seller who has been blocked can’t sell to people who are trying to buy from them.
The good news is that facebook did block seller accounts, so it was quite easy for me to try to get in! But its tough. The bad news is that there is a lot of spam to deal with.
For the person that sells on facebook, the problem appears to be that they have an account in a spam folder, but they have no way to get out. So the seller, they are now blocked, cant sell to people, has no way to get in. Its a very complicated situation. I’m sure that this is not a big deal to some people, but to someone like me who is not tech-savvy, it can be a big nightmare.
Most people selling on facebook have an account which is linked to a Facebook page. So, if somebody has bought a product from you on facebook, you can go to their page and get the product info and you will be able to sell it to some other users who are friends of yours.
If this is a real concern for you, you should check your own account settings to see if you have a “Friends on Facebook” tab. If you don’t, you should definitely visit facebook.com and look for seller pages. If you can find one of those, be sure to log in to your account and see if that seller page is still there.
Unfortunately, this is the same as asking “Is my browser the browser I’m using?” and checking if a link is working. I’ve seen it happen many times on facebook and it’s all kinds of confusing. Facebook is great for getting to know people, but it’s a confusing and painful thing to do when you’re logged into facebook.com. So maybe if you’re logged into facebook.
If you are using Facebook, you’re not actually logged into Facebook. Not only that, but you can still see the facebook page. It’s a better way to find sales. It’s a way to get a list of potential buyers or sellers that are interested in the product, rather than clicking on them.
Facebook has been blocked by Facebook Marketplace for several people who use it to sell. They have not yet been told what happened, but it seems to be because they’ve been selling on Facebook Marketplace for a while.
If you’re selling on Facebook Marketplace, you would think that you could post ads there to reach more potential buyers (or sellers). It’s not that easy though. The best way to reach more buyers/sellers is to pay them for your product. But Facebook Marketplace’s privacy settings do not allow you to pay users for ads. Instead, you have to pay them with your credit card.
