Facebook launched its Marketplace last year, which gave users the ability to buy and sell things on the social network.
The Marketplace was already available in some countries, and recently, the company introduced it in 17 more European countries.
Previously, the marketplace was available in the US, Australia, Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand and the UK, but now many other European countries can now use it as well. The new additions include Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
The company said,
Whether you’re a new parent looking for baby clothes or a collector looking for a rare find, you 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.
Throughout our initial rollout we have focused on making it easy for people to connect, browse and discover products. In May, more than 18 million new items posted for sale in Marketplace in the US, and that number continues to grow.
We’ll update you if it rolls out in more countries.
