Facebook has announced that Facebook Marketplace is now available in Sri Lanka, making it easier for people to discover, buy and sell items from others in their local communities.
People will be able to browse listings that interest them and filter them by distance or category. They can also use the search box to find exactly what they are looking for.
Listing an item for sale is just as easy as browsing for one on Marketplace. Sellers can share a photo of an item, enter a product name, description and price, confirm their location and select a category. They can also choose to post their listings to Facebook Buy and Sell Groups. Interested buyers will find the item they are looking for and message the sellers directly through Messenger. They can decide on the payment method depending on their own preferences.
