Policies and best practices for shipping on Facebook Marketplace

We suggest following the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for how to stay healthy and help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) while buying and selling. Be sure to check and follow local laws and directives that may be in place during this time. Read our tips for buying and selling responsibly on Marketplace.
All sellers who use shipping and checkout on Marketplace agree to follow our Seller Policies.
For items you sell with shipping and checkout, you'll need to:
  • Ship the item within 3 business days of confirming the order. Make sure to mark it as shipped and enter a tracking number. Our system will automatically cancel the order if it hasn’t been marked as shipped, regardless of any agreement made with the buyer.
  • Respond to customers within 2 business days. Check your messages from buyers frequently so buyers can reach you when they have questions. You can also help avoid Purchase Protection claims from buyers by replying to any reported issues within 2 business days.
The information above summarizes parts of the Seller Policies for convenience, and isn't intended to change the Seller Policies.
Note: This article is about items sold by individual sellers with shipping and checkout. Learn about the different ways to buy and sell on Marketplace.
