Facebook Marketplace, the feature that enables Facebook users to browse used items for sale in their vicinities, has been online in the Czech Republic since August 14.

We reported earlier that Facebook will roll out its Marketplace in 17 European countries. The Czech Republic is one of the previously earmarked countries. The other 16 are Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

The European expansion was officially announced by Facebook on August 14, and that was also when Facebook Marketplace went live in the Czech Republic.

Facebook Marketplace is live in the Czech language, and it allows about 4.5 million Czech Facebook users to search for and sell items to others in their local areas and networks. It does not facilitate payment or delivery of stuff sold, but it’s free to use.

In the Czech Republic, Facebook Marketplace will compete with the big, local stuff sites, including Aukro.cz, Bazos.cz and SBazar.cz.

Facebook Marketplace was first launched in October 2016 in the U.S., U.K., Australia and New Zealand.
