Facebook is extending ads from users and brands to the Marketplace

Facebook launched the Marketplace in the year 2016, the main objective of the Facebook Marketplace was to allow the users buy and sell locally. In order to promote the marketplace, Facebook has started showing it in the main navigation bar. Facebook Marketplace allows the users to browse the products and services from the people in their localities. As posted on the Facebook business page “Over the past few months, we’ve enabled businesses to list a variety of offerings in Marketplace such as used vehicles, home rentals, home services and jobs. And now, businesses can advertise in Marketplace to reach people where they’re actively shopping.

Ads from businesses appear alongside other products and services in Marketplace, and extending your ads to Marketplace is easy. By selecting Automatic Placements, your ads can appear across our various placement options such as News Feed, Instagram, Messenger, Audience Network and now, Marketplace. Advertising across our platforms enables you to reach your target audience wherever they’re spending time, giving you more opportunities to connect with people likely to be interested in your offerings.

Businesses are already seeing results using ads in Marketplace. Thread Wallets, an accessories company, generated more than 300 purchases while increasing its year-over-year return on ad spend by 41% after adding Marketplace as a placement for its conversions campaigns.


Over the next few weeks, all advertisers targeting audiences in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand will be able to run ads in Marketplace using the traffic, conversions, product catalog, video views and reach objectives.”
