Facebook recently announced that it will be discontinuing the marketplace inventory partner program at the end of the summer.
What does this mean for Carpages Dealers?
Carpages will continue to send your inventory to Facebook Marketplace as normal until September 13th. Afterwards, your Carpages ads will no longer automatically load in the Facebook Marketplace. However, we will continue to feed inventory to the “vehicle tab” on your Facebook Business Page, as well as to the Facebook Catalog so that you can quickly and easily run your own Facebook Ad Campaigns.
Other ways to reach buyers on Facebook
While listings from partner catalogs will no longer be displayed on Marketplace, you can continue reaching vehicle buyers on Facebook in the following other ways.
- Create Marketplace listings from your personal profile or business Page: You can create Marketplace listings for vehicles from your personal profile. You can also manually create Marketplace listings for vehicles from your business page.
- Showcase vehicle listings on your dealership Page: You can continue to use Carpages to showcase your full inventory of vehicles on the Vehicles tab of your dealership Page.
- Reach car shoppers with automotive inventory ads: You can set up your automotive inventory ads from your dealership Page with your partner catalog. Contact our support team for assistance in setting this up.

IMPORTANT: The automated partner syndication to Facebook is stopping for all companies worldwide. Please be wary of any company claiming they will still automatically feed your inventory to Facebook Marketplace.
