Facebook users could soon sell goods by writing a simple post on a group, the social networking site confirmed.
A new "sell something" button has shown up for some users next to the "write post" feature in groups on the Facebook site. People can describe the item, its price, post a picture of what they are selling as well as specify pick-up or delivery details.
The item is then posted and users can comment as they would for a usual Facebook post. There are no details yet on how users will pay and transact the deal.
"We are testing a new feature within Facebook Groups to help people better organize posts about items they'd like to sell to other people on Facebook. This is a small test limited to select Facebook Groups that have active selling communities today," a Facebook spokesperson said by email.
