Facebook is testing a new regional online marketplace feature in Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand. A new "Buy & Sell" button is currently being rolled out in the platform's lefthand navigation panel, which will take users to a searchable marketplace of items available in their groups and local area.
This marketplace offers for-sale categories such as "Clothing" and "Computer & Electronics", mashable.com reports.. The "Sell Something" tab in Groups now also offers the option to cross-post items publicly onto the local "Buy & Sell" feed, as well as the group. Facebook announced in February, 2015 that new features to assist people buying and selling items would be rolled out in the near future.
