  1. not clear at all. A lot mumbo jumbo garbage in FB announcement. I don’t like FB for their criminal activities of selling personal data. I’m sure they keep doing that, only using much more sophisticated tools.

  2. they want to help sellers start a business to help them , but keep the money to long so they can make interest on it. that’s only going to hurt sellers , not help them. where do these people come from ???

  3. And according to the Facebook merchant terms:

    “You grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of any data, content, and other information provided by you or accessed by us in connection with the Merchant Commerce Features, including photos, videos, and Product Listing content, in connection with the Facebook Products.”

  4. Fakebook is a waste of time. I currently have 450 listings in 8 different groups. No one is buying anything there for the last 8 months. I’m making a little $ on Mercari. It’s the same payment setup. Bit of a hassle. But on a smaller site I have more confidence then eBay that has more glitches then I can count. And fakebook? I wouldn’t trust them with one penny of my money. If you sell from a group they pay with prey pal and you get paid right away. Left eBay after 22 years of hoops and my first 2 months on Mercari has been better than my last 6 months on eBay.

  5. Okay, so ship a product that hasn’t been paid for and hope they don’t reverse payment and keep the product? Do they think we’re stupid or something…or are they just that stupid?

    1. Don’t get me started on them giving themselves (taking) the right to infringe on our intellectual property by simply saying they have the right in the TOS. It’s one thing to publish our listings in multiple advertising avenues, but their verbiage is much too vague, giving them far too much leeway. Unacceptable.

      1. In other words, they need to be more specific about how they intend to use our intellectual property, limiting their usage to an agreeable level.
