Why is Facebook Marketplace not Working?

People would find themselves unable to log onto their Marketplace account to post. The reason can be flaw in the Marketplace verification system”.

Verification System

For people trying to post items for sale on Marketplace, there is a verification process. This is a  set up by Facebook as a way to confirm the identity of sellers and to protect buyers from fraud. This process involves uploading a picture as well as other details. This process usually takes a few days after which the seller can start posting straight away.

A bug in this security feature is responsible for all the trouble that users have been going through. This makes a lot of sense as most of that effect got locked out of their accounts after submitting their details for verification.
