Lead generation

We support two methods of lead capture: Lead form (based on regional availability), and Messenger chat.

Messenger chat Lead form
  • the Facebook page linked to the listing will receive the messages
  • quicker interaction
  • better conversion
  • Marketplace users fill up a form with their information
  • the Facebook page linked to the listing will receive the leads (e.g. via a webhook). More info on leads retrieval docs.

Facebook will not send any emails or notification to individual dealers. Listing partners are responsible to notify dealers.

Messages and leads are routed to the Facebook Page associated with the listings. Either Partner or Dealer Facebook Pages can be set up to receive Marketplace leads depending on the chosen integration model. See fb_page_id field in feed upload for more information.

In order to make API requests, you have to request an app review. Dev mode is allowed for some time/number of requests, but when your integration is in production, you should request an app review and switch the app to Live mode. An app in Dev mode could stop working as expected at any moment.

Find more info about app review in our FAQs.
