It looks like Facebook has also found a use case for a ‘sell’ feature for groups.”

It is believed that there will a new button embedded in the interface saying “Sell Something” which will only be available to use on Facebook Groups. According to the report published by ‘The Next Web’, it is said that “some users have reported seeing a “Sell Something” button just next to the “Write Post” button while posting to a group.”
Clicking on the “Sell Something” button will bring a form on the screen with various fields which will require adding information related to the name of the item, price and description, along with an option to attach a picture and pickup and delivery instructions.
This will be a very good addition by the company on its platform as the trend of buying and selling on Facebook Groups is gathering much pace than expected.
