To get to the Marketplace, tap the Shop icon at the bottom of the Facebook app, and select Marketplace. In the BigCommerce Shop control panel, select the "Facebook" icon, tap "Get to Marketplace" and select your account.
You will now be part of the Facebook Marketplace Review process, which gives Facebook time to decide whether your product is suitable for sale on the marketplace.
