    Hi…please help me, I need to get my marketplace unbanned as I need to buy some things. I was still new in the advertising on marketplace and Im still not sure why I got banned, but I think it might be because of replica products, which I found out afterwards. Please review my marketplace. I will no longer use the platform to advertise, but I want to buy from there.
    Regards Belinda

    Hi Elizabeth,
    It looks like your Marketplace tab was disabled for going against Facebook’s
    Community Standards. Because of these violations, we can’t re-enable Marketplace on your account at this time.

    Standards, please visit the link below: commerce?ref=cr

      I am sorry to say that “It happens”.

      If you think you haven’t done anything, and Facebook is not responding back as well.
      You should create a new Facebook account for using Marketplace immediately.
      And keep waiting for them to unblock you on the main account.

  4. Galen Sawyer says:

    I have zero understanding of why I was banned from Marketplace. It occurred over 6 months ago and reviews have gotten me no where.

    I understand there is some kind of appeal letter or form but don’t know how to access it?

    1. I’m in the same boat. I did absolutely nothing but browse for homes for rent. Been months and I have not heard anything despite me sending multiple messages.

        Actually, it’s hard to say sometimes. But often users have complained that they haven’t violated any of the rules of Facebook but still they got banned. We tried to highlight some of the issues but it’s sure that the Facebook Algorithm is either full of bugs or have flaws that resulted in the ban of innocent users who haven’t done any harm.

  6. Christine Littlewood says:

    I tried to sell my mums mobility walker and was told it violated marketplace commerce policies. There are the same items for sale on marketplace so i dont understand. I have been told I cannot buy and sell and the decision is final. Nowhere to appeal to that I can find.

  7. Please, consider unbanning me from Marketplace I have posted similiar items as others and when told I was in violation I did delete them and do my best not to repeat the situation. I was told recently I did something incorrectly then it went into review and it was cleared then hours later I was told I could not sell on Marketplace?

      Hello Sta,

      As you would already know, we are not official representatives of Facebook marketplace, we just share information and our expereinces. If you really wanna move forward, create a new account rather waiting for this one to be unbanned as it might take some time.

      1. Abdulsalam abiola says:

        Even while trying to create another Facebook account, I still got same ban. I don’t really know what’s going on.

  8. Please help me get access to marketplace I was banned for no reason I did not violate any rules or list any items that are restricted there was no reason for this

    1. Ethan Carter says:

      Facebook is un-just sometimes as it is done automatically through algorithms. But you can contact facebook to get your account unbanned or create a new one if you like.
