💸 How much will scraping Facebook Marketplace cost you?

This scraper uses the Pay-per-result pricing model, so your costs can be easily calculated: it will cost you $5 to scrape 1,000 Marketplace items, so $0.005 per item. Apify provides you with $5 free usage credits every month on the Apify Free plan, so you can scrape 1,000 items on Facebook Marketplace for free for those credits.

But if you need to extract data regularly, you should get an Apify subscription. We recommend our $49/month Starter plan — that one could get you up to 9,800 Marketplace listings every month.

❓FAQ

Does Facebook Marketplace have an API?

Facebook Marketplace does not have an official API for retrieving data on Marketplace listings. While there are old sources from 2007 and an API for posting and receiving seller data (Marketplace Approval API), neither of these APIs provide access to the listings themselves. This means developers cannot use the official Marketplace API to extract details about listings on Facebook Marketplace regularly and at scale.

This is why alternative solutions like Facebook Marketplace Scraper exist. A scraper is essentially an API of its own if it allows exporting scraped data via an API.

How do I use data from Facebook Marketplace?

Scraping Facebook Marketplace can help you to:

💸 Discover the best-selling items on Facebook Marketplace

Our Facebook scrapers are ethical and do not extract any private user data. They only extract what the user has chosen to share publicly. However, you should be aware that your results could contain personal data. You should not scrape personal data unless you have a legitimate reason to do so.

If you're unsure whether your reason is legitimate, consult your lawyers. You can also read our blog post on the legality of web scraping and ethical scraping.

Not your cup of tea? Build your own Marketplace scraper.

Facebook Marketplace scraper doesn’t exactly do what you need? You can always build your own! We have various web scraping templates in Python, JavaScript, and TypeScript to get you started. Alternatively, you can write it from scratch using our open-source library Crawlee. You can keep the scraper to yourself or make it public by adding it to the Apify Store (and find users for it to make money).

How do I export Facebook marketplace listings?

Run Facebook Marketplace Scraper with a search query of your choice + location. Once the Actor has finished scraping, go to the Apify Console, navigate to your Actor's run, and click on the dataset. From there, you can export the data in various formats like CSV, JSON, or Excel.
