This New Facebook Marketplace Bug is a Problem

This New Facebook Marketplace Bug is a Problem

there's been a glitch that's been
happening on facebook marketplace this
week okay now in this video i'm gonna
show you a workaround for this glitch so
that if it happens to you you can still
list i'm gonna give you two different
ways it's happened to me on one of my
personal accounts the other one's still
unaffected but that's how i've been
testing different things out right so in
this video i'm going to show you how you
can do multiple listings using a
spreadsheet on personal facebook
marketplace i'm also going to show you
how you can use a a mobile emulator to
also list on facebook marketplace from
the computer pretty quickly okay now
this glitch that's been happening
happened to me but i thought originally
it was just happening to me and i was
like oh my god here we go again facebook
is like you know rolls out features
differently to like different users at
different times so i just figured it was
a glitch and then it kept happening but
i notiked a lot more people in a lot of
the groups basically saying like this
same glitch was happening to them right
and so what it is is when you go to
create a new listing or you go to edit a
current listing it you get this error
that pops up on the screen that's like
this right
basically what it says is this page
isn't available right now this may be
because of a tiknical error that we're
working on to get fixed try reloading
this page and you can reload and reload
and reload but that thing just stays
there now for whatever reason you're
still able to do multiple uploads when
you
create multiple listings at once and for
whatever reason you're still able to
edit and create new listings on mobile
right but it's an annoying thing because
a lot of at least for me like my va's
list 100 as close to 150 a day these new
workarounds like yes they'll work but it
takes a little bit longer than like
using a software like z drop or a
software like fbm fox that's just gonna
move listings over super quickly so this
is your best bet obviously this is a
glitch currently hopefully they fix it
relatively soon in the meantime this
these these workarounds will help you so
that you can continue listing continue
editing items because another thing that
like well there's two things here that i
want to touch on the first thing is like
you need to be listing you should be
listing every single day as many as
possible right take as many swings at
the plate as you possibly can they're
giving you 150 a day you might as well
i'm not going to break that down anymore
i've broken it down a million different
times in other videos so that's first
and foremost secondly one of the tips
that i always give to is like when
people message you asking for specific
things or specific variations or hey do
you have x y or z what you want to do is
you want to go to that actual site and
then list that or go find that on a site
list that product marketplace and then
send that product back to them and be
like hey i do have it here it is the
issue with this is like
if you can't list right then you
obviously can't really do that
effectively unless you use these
workarounds and on top of that you also
can't edit edit items so if somebody
wants you to potentially change the
price or maybe you need to mark an item
out of stok or maybe you need to edit
something in the listing or put in
dimensions or there's a number of
different things right you can't edit
things either okay so i'm going to show
you two ways obviously the way that you
want to edit is either use a mobile
emulator like i'm going to show you or
just do it on your phone that obviously
works as well although it is a little
bit annoying it can be a lot faster on a
computer so the first thing you're going
to want to do is if you go to create
multiple listings right here you can
find this on you know your selling
dashboard you can find it under your
listings under shipping orders i believe
under sales so it's not hard to find
just go find this where you can actually
go ahead and list and instead of
creating a new listing because you'll
see if i create a new listing or if i
try to edit any current listing
i get that error message that pops up
and says hey you know you need to reload
this page it doesn't work and that's
exactly what it looks like right and i
get the same error message if i try to
uh you know edit a listing as well so
what you want to do is you want to
create multiple listings and the way
that you're going to do this is it's
going to allow you to download a
spreadsheet template where you can then
input that stuff in there right you can
put the title you can put the
description you can put the price of the
item you can obviously upload photos and
i'll show you how to do that okay so
what you want to do is if you don't have
a template yet download the template
you'll get something that looks like
this and you just want to drag these
over so you can kind of see the columns
but realistikally you don't need all
these columns that they're suggesting at
least if you're drop shipping you're not
really worried about the specific
variations that they're going to give
you okay so instead what you only really
need
is you only really need the title
obviously the price that you're marking
it up to the condition i always pretty
much listen in new condition every once
in a while do use but it's mainly new
the available quantity and the shipping
price right if you have a shipping price
of free if you offer free shipping all
these should be zeros right if you
charge for shipping i always charge five
dollars for shipping so i can mark my
prices down a little bit more then all
obviously the shipping price will be
whatever you want it to be right
available inventories the quantity that
you want in there i used to start it at
seven then i went to 50. now i'm at 100.
i've had no issues listing almost 150 a
day with a hundred available inventory
for
months now right so i just do it that
way that way i don't really ever have to
worry about keeping items in stok
unless obviously it's selling a lot then
i'll go back and i'll change the
inventory and raise it right
so your spreadsheet should pretty much
look like this when you want to start
adding products okay you're going to
have blank title cop or blank title
columns blank price columns blank
description okay all these depending on
how many you want to upload and i would
recommend starting small like don't go
out and build a spreadsheet of 50
because this does glitch out every once
in a while and um for the most part like
every 8 out of 10 times this works
perfectly and every 2 out of 10 times my
va's run into a problem where it
glitches out uploading multiple ones
right but usually it works but that's
why i say start small do like five to
ten at the time and just move through it
that way right so let's just do one as
an example to show you here you can
obviously build out the spreadsheet and
just go down rows as many products as
you possibly want so all we're going to
do is we're going to come back to a
product i have uh
ecommerce image downloader which is this
plugin that's going to download all the
pictures from the listing and obviously
z drop does that as well okay so you're
going to need those those plugins uh
whether it's z drop or if it's or it's
ecommerce image downloader this is a
free plugin that you can download on the
group google chrome store uh but those
you're gonna need later when we upload
the pictures when we're actually in
facebook marketplace first thing we're
gonna do is copy the title
so we come paste the title in there next
thing we're gonna do is paste the
description in there and what you wanna
do in the spreadsheet is you wanna click
in the spreadsheet because if you just
paste it there it's going to drop it
down because it's usually bullet points
on amazon now if you're doing this on a
different site obviously it's going to
be slightly different so play around
with it paste it in there so all your
description goes in there and then you
just want to mark the price up so
i typically mark prices up about 40
i'm just gonna gut shot this at like
we'll say 239 just to kind of keep this
moving so i don't have to actually
calculate it we'll say 239. so now what
we're going to do is we're going to save
this and we're going to upload a csv
instead of downloading the template okay
so there we go we're going to upload fbm
check check your spreadsheet for errors
always pops up don't worry about that
and now you'll notike okay put the title
in it put the description in it didn't
change the price every once in a while
it either will miss the title it'll miss
the description it'll miss the price or
any number of those things but that
rarely happens most of the time it
uploads them all right you'll see if you
upload like 10 or 20 at a time the
majority of them upload fine and then
you just need to add the pictures and
kind of edit it but every once in a
while it'll miss one but this is a
workaround that's working currently and
it still still allows you to a edit
items or add new items if you need to so
then you're going to come over and click
the draft button so that you can edit
these
and now we just need to download the
pictures right so download the main
images
they're going to pop all the way up down
here
then we're going to add the photos
grab them right there i downloaded them
twice by accident
and so the title looks fine obviously i
would go through and change these and
space the description out but for the
sake of like just showing you right here
um and not really kind of um you know
taking a lot of time i'm not gonna
really do much to this i think i said it
was 239 again i just want to power
through this to show you again i would
add pegs but again i'm gonna power
through this to show you i'm gonna hide
it from my friends and then i'm gonna
click done editing your entire process
here doesn't change done editing and
then you should pop it up over here and
it'll say ready to publish okay and then
obviously if you have five here if you
have ten here you're gonna do all those
at once and then publish them all since
i only have one to show you as a test
we're going to publish that one and then
it should pop up there and say it's
active so that's how you do it with
multiple listings and a spreadsheet
that's the workaround the other
workaround is using a mobile emulating
software like you see here on computers
so that you can because for whatever
reason it still works on computer you
are on on mobile excuse me you can still
edit from your phone you can still
create new listings from your phone the
issue with that is you can't really use
a
move over software like a z dropper or
an fbm fox now
a little caveat here i have an iphone
i'm sure the majority of you watching
this probably live within the us and
have an iphone right if you have an
android z drop makes a plug-in for
android that you can use i've never
tested it i know it exists so you might
want to look into that right but the
same thing goes here so this one right
here is called lcd i believe uh ld
player it's a mobile emulator that i
downloaded i'm testing it out what my
vas were using for the past two days
were blue stacks i've toked about blue
stacks in other videos um on like how
you can use an emulator to list on offer
up in places that like only use mobile
so this works very very well bluestacks
i stand behind 100
ld right now i'm testing out to see if
it works um i kind of like it i like
bluestacks a little bit better but they
both do the job right so same thing
you're just going to download the images
here you're going to drag the images
over
just like you always would you're going
to copy the title obviously you want to
change the title up a little bit but
just for the sake of showing you here
you know put the title in and maybe
we'll change the quantity we upped the
price we changed the category we put the
description in we hide it from friends
we click next then we list from the
mobile emulator right
so that's just two workarounds that are
going to let you list if this is
currently affecting you obviously that's
very very valuable because you can still
listen you can still edit items if it's
not affecting you it's just valuable
tools that have in your toolbelt in case
it does happen in the future who knows
with facebook marketplace it's all over
the place also who knows with shops it's
all over the place so these are good
ideas to have they're good you know
tools to have in your tool belt and
they're going to help you in the future
if you ever run into these issues if
you're not currently facing them right
now all right so really hope that helps
guys if you want a step-by-step
blueprint to your very own six-figure
drop shipping business on facebook
