“We currently syndicate our stock via several of the major portals; but were still keen to explore using Marketplace and the opportunity to better reach customers within Facebook itself. I’m so glad we did.
Prospects in our local area have really embraced the Marketplace platform and engaged with our vehicle listings, and as a result we’re now receiving a steady stream of leads into the business weekly. In fact, performance from what is essentially a free service for us has been so positive, that we’re now reviewing our plans for how and where we invest in stock syndication.”

Q: How much does it cost?
Facebook and GForces do not charge fees to list on Marketplace or use Messenger, regardless of the number of listings you have or the volume of enquires they generate. If you’re a GForces client already, all listings are completely free.
However, if you’re not a GForces client, there are likely to be setup costs and licence fees associated with setting up new stock feeds and using an outsourced chat management provider such as Gubagoo.
Q: Will I be able to list new vehicles?
No. Marketplace is designed to list used and physical stock only.
Q: Will I be able to list approved used stock?
Q: Will listings show on my Facebook Page?
No, your listings will only show on Marketplace. However, all your stock listings will show your dealership details and provide direct links back to your Facebook page.
Q: Can users purchase cars directly through Marketplace?
No, Marketplace simply connects the buyer to you, the seller, through the Facebook Messenger chat platform.
Q: How will my stock listings show up relative to consumer listings in Marketplace?
Both types of listings will surface together when they are browsing or searching on Marketplace. However, users will be able to filter to show dealership listings only if they prefer.
