If you're looking for more product sources for your book-selling business, then Facebook Marketplace could be the best place to find them.
Community platforms such as NextDoor are great, but because people are hanging out more on Facebook, their Marketplace usually ends up more fruitful.
Sellers will often post an item or books on Craigslist, NextDoor, and Facebook Marketplace.
Where can I find the Facebook Marketplace?
To find the Facebook Marketplace just navigate to Facebook and then click on the menu link to the left.
From here you will want to search for the item or items you are trying to buy.
After a quick search, you should find items for sale almost immediately.
You'll have to choose wisely and look at the pictures closely before making an offer or committing to a purchase. For example, most people selling books are genuine everyday people looking to get rid of their books. But some are experienced Amazon sellers looking to dump their duds.
