Based on the above screenshots, shared by social media expert Matt Navarra, Holiday Mode will let potential buyers know that you’re not available to fulfill any orders, so you can pause your listing, as opposed to temporarily removing it.
Regarding the new option -Holiday Mode- which Facebook added, Facebook says: “Buyers won’t be able to place orders or start new conversations with you. If you have pending orders that need to be fulfilled, turning on holiday mode does not cancel or pause these orders.”
Moreover, that means you still need to meet any existing obligations, it doesn’t stop all activity associated with your profile unconditionally. However, as noted, it could be a helpful way in order to keep your listings active, while also communicating with potential buyers that there will be a delay.
Also, Facebook’s Marketplace has become a key element of the platform, with 800 million people browsing Facebook’s market listings each month. Moreover, that’s provided limited opportunity for brands, with Facebook announcing some commercial partnerships for Marketplace, simultaneity, the option is also a key element in Facebook’s broader eCommerce push, as it looks to expand user behavior.
This is a moderately small addition in the broader scheme, anyhow still. it will come in handy for those looking to maintain their Marketplace activity, with a simple switch that will put all of your different market posts on hold for as long as you choose.
You can check the Holiday Mode option now easily, as it is available within your Marketplace settings.
