So, this is not good news for dealers with large inventory numbers posted to the Marketplace on a regular basis. To clarify, the "partner catalog" would be if you have a third party handling your catalog? Right?
Paid Marketplace is interesting to me.From what I understand:
- third party sending your catalogue no longer works
- bulk uploading your inventory lists is not possible
- listing vehicles one at a time as a private listing works
The two avenues they seem to be pushing:
- Facebook Inventory Ads
- Running Ads on the marketplace - these are ads, not listings and they look and function differently
We've been playing with this a fair bit - their docs are slowly being updated to reflect what is possible in September.
Paid Marketplace is interesting to me.
Please do let us know what you learn on this!
Reach car shoppers with automotive inventory ads: You can set up your automotive inventory ads from your dealership Page with your partner catalog. When you set up your ads, you can also leverage the on-Facebook destination, a mobile-optimized shopping experience on the Facebook platform. Automotive inventory ads will continue to be displayed on Marketplace and across other placements on Facebook.
I don't think that's an option.Hello, I didn't really understand what possibilities will we have on September 13th if we want to upload our whole vehicle listings automatically (not manually) ?
I understand that Facebook will not pass throught Partners Catalogs imports anymore, but does it mean that now it will be possible to do it directly with a Facebook integrated tool ? (which doesn't exist actually)
If so, do you have an idea what price FB could propose for this feature ?
I think it's a good thing, if not a great thing.For one I think this is a good thing.
Yes, but it will only work until September 13th. After that, you're out of luck and have to go the manual (or paid AIA) route.If you owe an old vehicle catalog you can ad the inventory on facebook marketplace!!!! NO paid ads, you need only an old vehicle catalog with marketplace enabled!! New vehicle catalog is not working anymore but old it still work!!
