The feature, which is only in testing but not broadly distributed, is a more structured marketplace aimed at buyers and sellers, allowing Facebook users to browse through or post items to sell across a variety of product categories like autos, appliances, furniture, clothing, household, kids, books, and much more.

The new section included both a 'Buy' and 'Sell' interface, as well as a way to search across the marketplace for particular items using keywords. Items available for sale are categorised, and include photos and prices.
