- Website of Facebook: On the left side of the screen, click the Marketplace option in the main menu.
- Apps for Facebook: To open the secondary menu, tap the icon that looks like three horizontal lines, then tap Marketplace. It’s possible that the link is hidden underneath the See More link if you can’t see it. To see all of the menu options, tap it.
While the two techniques above are normally sufficient to locate Facebook Marketplace, the option may become unavailable due to a technical issue or a restriction placed on an account.
Here’s all you need to know about adding Marketplace to Facebook and getting the Marketplace icon to appear again in applications and on the Facebook website.
Reasons Why the Facebook Marketplace Icon Is Missing
If you’ve opened the Facebook website or app and the Facebook Marketplace icon is not showing, there are a variety of potential causes that might be behind this problem.
- You’re under 18. Facebook Marketplace is only available to Facebook users who are 18 years old or over.
- Your home region isn’t supported. Only 50 nations, including the United States, Canada, and Australia, have access to Facebook Marketplace. The Facebook Marketplace icon does not appear if your Facebook profile’s home address is set to a country that isn’t supported.
- You’re in an unsupported country. Traveling to a nation where Facebook Marketplace isn’t available may result in the option being removed from the Facebook site and applications.
- Your device isn’t supported. Only iPhone 5 and later, Android, and iPad devices are compatible with Facebook Marketplace. It is not compatible with the iPod touch.
- Your Facebook account is new. New Facebook users have reported that the Marketplace does not appear at all. This is most likely done to keep scammers from making new accounts and selling fraudulent products after their earlier accounts have been blocked.
- It’s hidden in the dynamic menu. Within the Facebook apps, the main icon menu is dynamic and offers shortcuts to the Facebook functions you use the most. If you don’t use Facebook Marketplace for a time, the icon may vanish. To see other Facebook services, tap the three-line icon on the main menu.
- Your access has been revoked by Facebook. If you used Marketplace in a way that was against its policies or guidelines, this may happen.
If you don’t see Facebook Marketplace after logging into Facebook, there are a few things you can do to make it show.
- Log out and then back into the Facebook website or app.
- On your mobile device, uninstall and reinstall the Facebook app.
- Change your default nation to one that Facebook Marketplace supports. To add or edit your current city, go to your Facebook profile, select About, and then click the plus symbol to add it or Edit to modify it.
- Create a new Facebook account every day, comment on other people’s posts, and add friends. The Marketplace feature may be opened if Facebook determines that your account is genuine and not a fake used to sell things.
- In a web browser, go to the Facebook Marketplace website. If the link fails to appear on the main Facebook website or within the applications, this can be an excellent fallback alternative.
I Can’t Find the FB Marketplace App
There is no official Facebook Marketplace app for Android or iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad to download.
If you’ve ever used a standalone Facebook Marketplace app, it was probably an unofficial version. Some users choose to use third-party Facebook Marketplace apps, but they aren’t necessary and typically have fewer features than the official Facebook app.
