Facebook Offers available in Australia

on May 1, 2012 | Facebook | Comments (3)

Finally, Facebook Offers/ Deals is available in Australia.

The process is very simple.

1. If you are a physical business and have a Facebook page you should be eligible.

2. Make sure your Fanpage is filled out with your physical location, work hours, about section etc.

3. Some page-owners will now see this new notification where you can do status updates.

In your offer you can detail:

  • Picture/ thumbnail that relates
  • How many offers can be taken by users in total
  • When the offer expires
  • Terms and Conditions for the offer

As mentioned this only looks to be available for physical business and is slowly rolling out to pages in Australia – so keep an eye on yours. It may not be available to all pages yet.

It will be interesting to see how this new feature performs as I believe there is a huge opportunity for Facebook to compete with Google Offers/ Places.

    Very interesting article. Do you know of any examples of Australian businesses already utilising this Offers feature?

  • Hi Alana,

    I don't know of any aussies businesses using this just yet – but when I do I will share.

    Likewise, if anyone finds anything – post it in a comment here.
