    When trying to post something on Facebook marketplace it is saying my location is in Portugal when I'm actually in New Zealand and when I go to change it and save it defaults back to somewhere in Portugal.
    Anyone have any ideas on this?

    I am having the same problem as you and I am also in New Zealand. I have posted two things on the Facebook Marketplace today, the first one said I was located in Hungary and the second one said I was in Finland. I edited my post and changed the location to where I actually am but it doesnt actually change. My facebook location is correct so I don't know why my marketplace one is not.

    I have the exact same problem. I am in Düsseldorf, Germany and only the marketplace of Facebook locates me in Louisville, Kentucky US - when I try to change it and use the positioning button on the map it brings me to Düsseldorf, when in leave the map it still reads Düsseldorf and when saving the offer it changes to Anywhere else in Facebook where in have checked my correct address/ location is used. Normal posts etc, all good. People nearby: works great.
    I also noticed, when I look at my marketplace posts, it shows Louisville, Kentucky (40217) next to my post - the numbers in brackets are the zip code of Düsseldorf - and no, Google did not give any hint that this zip code is also used for Louisville - not even similar zip code there..

    Hi! You can only change the location through your laptop or desktop computer as I have the same problem as well when I try to post it through my mobile phone. Thanks!

    Nope. Same problem on my PC and my laptop. Seems FB has had this problem since Marketplace was introduced and yet they haven't addressed this problem at all. Ive had days where it works, but it's rare. If anyone has a solution please post! Ive been scouring for months on a solution to this problem with no luck.

    I can change the location on my iPhone 7 plus and that fixed the problem. But it annoying posting on the note 8 then editing the post on the 7+ is you know what I mean. 🙁
