FB marketplace shipping currently is only open to certain people, seemingly at random. I wish I knew when they were rolling this out to everyone.
Some updates since last week. Let me know your thoughts or experience with Facebook shipping

Is this your experience too? I notice that if I offer shipping on an item, that item will show up in my "selling" list on my android. But if I open Marketplace on my desktop or laptop, none of my items with shipping show up under "selling", only my local pick-ups. CON! Also, in android I can't see how many views the item has without opening each individual listing. Whereas on my computers the # of views is shown in the "selling" list without opening each item. CON!

Thanks for your input! I do all of my listing and sales via my IPhone, so don’t have experience with either of those venues, Android or Desktop. I will pin this comment for any Android users. Thanks for your input

Facebook glitchy. You are not kidding. I get no options to offer shipping. When are they rolling this out?

I wish I knew! I think they were going to do it but just... haven’t yet. Their customer service and their representatives are ridiculously unresponsive

@Emily Conway I see. Well that's frustrating. Maybe I will try to contact them and see if they can open it to me.

Jackson Wood hello! At the moment, Facebook has opened up shipping options to certain people. I wish I knew the rhyme or reason as to why they chose certain people but if you don’t have the option, it is most likely not available to you

Go to marketplace, click “your sales”. It should show a balance. The balance will automatically be released into the bank account you put on file within 2 weeks. It’s a long time, I know.

2 weeks to get paid is an absolute disaster because that also gives the customer time to damage the item and then send it back etc as opposed to a quick "done deal" like on eBay . There's obviously some dumbasses who are running this program!!!!

There are definitely some kinks to work out, for sure. At this point if they don’t change it, I would avoid selling expensive items that would be a devastating loss. One thing I like to do is pm people and tell them to pay me via paypal and I ship via pirateship, just going behind the program altogether. That has been working for me

A bit hesitant to use the shipping option because of my experience with scammers on eBay. I still might use it for items under $200 though.I hope this becomes the main platform though because eBay always sides with scammers and dont ban them.

@Emily Conway My friend just got banned from eBay because a scammer was trying to get him to send a laptop to a reshipping company to ship outside the country. EBay sided with the scammer and banned his account. I've told him about this and will try it myself Ebay needs to die as a platform. Whiny buyers I can deal with but banning legitimate users and allowing obvious scammers to continue scamming their sellers is unacceptable.

I have had mixed experiences with EBay. No major scams though where I was burned for good. Facebook has been solid for me though. No issues yet. Just a very whiny annoying buyer but that happens everywhere haha! Just sold a north face today so it is worth it. I do tell a lot of people on FB just to pay me with PayPal and I’ll ship it on my own though. Don’t know if that is against the rules though so don’t copy me 😂

I have not bought via Facebook shipping at this point. I have only sold. However, I can say that it takes a lot of time for the seller to receive any money. So my guess is that if you haven’t received your item, Facebook will not give the seller the money. It is still definitely in beta right now. As a matter of fact, i believe Facebook shipping is down until the new year as they are making improvements and updates. I hope this was helpful! Let me know if you have any more questions or concerns

This was super helpful! I don't use Facebook but thinking about opening an account just for reselling. Not cool about the time it takes to get paid though. I really hate paying for shipping out of pocket even if I'm getting reimbursed. This is why I don't like to offer free shipping on Ebay or Mercari. I just want to pay for the stuff when I thrift it and not have to spend anything else. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?I Sorry LOL

Very true. I feel the same about the shipping. I do hope they get the kinks worked out. I think if and when they do, it will be super awesome. Until then, it is what it is, HAHAHA
