If you live in India you probably have already seen one of many ads involving people wondering if they should sell stuff that is just lying around their house. Well, what’s behind these ads is OLX, a website for free online classified ads where you can sell or buy any type of product!
OLX was first created in Argentina, and since then it has spread across many countries in the world, and is now available in 96 countries and in 45 different languages. This internet company has gained popularity over the years, since it is the perfect place to sell stuff you got but you don’t need any more. In January 2010 the newspaper amNewYork named OLX one of New York City’s 10 hottest tech start-ups, since it allowed some people to get rid of items they didn’t need, and others to acquire the product they had always been looking for. Remember that shirt you got for your birthday you never wore because it was a size too small? Well, now is your chance to make use of it by selling it to someone that may like it.
You can make an account in OLX and start posting ads immediately. You just need a few minutes and maybe one or two pictures to show the potential buyers what you want to sell. Next, add a brief description to you add and click on the post button. The only thing left is to wait for people who might be interested in buying your item. So remember, next time you don’t know what to do with an item, don’t throw it away: put it up for sale and make someone else happy!
