Dropshipping on Facebook Marketplace

Dropshipping on Facebook Marketplace

Did you know that you can dropship using Facebook Marketplace? Well, as a matter of fact you can. Many eCommerce businesses are expanding onto this platform. US Facebook Marketplace offers shipment and payment through the marketplace, whereas Canada hasn't quite reached to where US is. 

Facebook Marketplace started out as using the platform to sell things locally, usually pre-owned items. However, over time FBMP has become another eCommerce platform that sellers can use. It's a similar method that you would use on Amazon. 

If you're going to dropship on FBMP, best route to take is wholesale dropshipping, and a lot more sustainable for longterm growth. You're in control of your business in terms of warehousing, packing and shipping. Prices from the manufacture doesn't fluctuate as much like retailers do. 

You could also do retail arbitrage. It is another great business model if you are willing to package and ship the items from home. This method works since not many customers have the access or ability to purchase items through liquidation stores. Which works out for the seller since you can mark up the product and make a good profit. 

Great thing about selling on FBMP, is there are tons of categories that you can sell in. Unlike Amazon, you don't need to wait to be un-gated to sell in categories that are closed off to some sellers. It's a great opportunity that many sellers should take advantage of.
