Do you want to look through the Facebook Marketplace but don’t have a Facebook account?
Sadly, you can’t use the Marketplace without a Facebook account. The Marketplace is a service offered by Facebook for Facebook users only.
Without an account, no one can access it. Fortunately, creating a Facebook account is easy and only takes a couple of minutes.
If you don’t know how to create a Facebook account or access the Marketplace, keep reading! That’s what I’m here to help you with.
How to Create a Facebook Account?
You’ll need a Facebook account to access the Marketplace. Follow the steps below to create an account on the platform:
1. Open Play Store
First, you need to install Facebook, and to do that, you need to open the Play Store. If you haven’t used it before, it’s an app on your phone.
Search for it in your app list and open it!
2. Search for Facebook
Once you open the App Store, use the search box at the top to find Facebook. Type in “Facebook” and select an option from the list. This will take you to the Facebook installation page.
3. Install and open Facebook
After you select an option in the search box, you’ll arrive at the official Facebook page. You should see the “Install” button to the right of the Facebook logo.
Tap on it to begin the installation process. Once it’s done, the “Install” button will turn into “Open“, like in the picture above.
Tap on it to open Facebook.
4. Select “Create new Facebook account“
After you open Facebook, you’ll get to a page similar to the one in the picture above. You should find the button that says “Create new Facebook account” or “Don’t have an account? Create one!“.
Tap on that option to begin the account creation process. This won’t take more than 2-3 minutes, so don’t worry.
5. Select “Next“
Once you click on “Create new account“, you’ll arrive on this page where Facebook will notify you that the account creation process will begin.
Click on “Next” to proceed.
6. Enter your name
The first step in creating a Facebook account is entering your name. Try to use your real name because Facebook may delete your account if you use a fake name.
Their algorithm doesn’t work all the time, though, so you may get away with a fake name. Once you enter the name, click on “Next“
7. Enter your birthday
Next, you must enter your birthdate. If you don’t want to enter your real birthdate, enter a random one but make sure you’re above 18 years old.
Facebook doesn’t allow people under 18 to have accounts, so you may want to keep that in mind. Once you select a birthdate, click “Next“.
8. Select your gender
The next step is selecting your gender. Either go with Male/Female or choose “Custom” to choose another gender.
Once you select your gender, click on “Next” to move to the next step of the account creation process.
9. Enter your mobile number or email address
Facebook will ask for your phone number or email address. By default, you’ll be asked for your phone number, but if you prefer to use your email address, there’s an option for that at the bottom.
Click on “Sign up with email address,” and you can enter your email address instead. Once you’re done, click on “Next“
10. Enter a new password
Next, Facebook will ask for a password to your Facebook account. Enter one you can remember and then click on “Next“.
You need to remember this password because you can’t access your Facebook account without it. But you can change it later on, so don’t worry!
11. Select “Sign up“
You’ve just finished signing up and creating your account. Tap on “Sign up” to create your Facebook account!
12. Tap on the Hamburger icon
Once you create your account, open it, sign in, and look in the top-right corner for the Hamburger icon. It looks like three horizontal lines, one on top of the other.
Tap on it to open a menu with several options.
13. Select “Marketplace“
After you tap on the Hamburger icon, this menu will open. You’ll see multiple options, such as “Groups“, “Find friends“, “Memories“, “Feeds“, “Saved“, “Events“, “Marketplace“, and more.
Select the “Marketplace” option to continue.
14. Scroll through the marketplace
Now, you can use the Facebook Marketplace whenever you want to. Scroll through the listings, look for what you’re interested in, contact the sellers, and buy what you need.
You’ll always be able to use the Marketplace through your Facebook account, so don’t forget the credentials (email address/phone number and password for the account).
