OLX always advises its users to meet in a public place to discuss the transaction before taking someone home to pick up the merchandise or making payments. This is how you are to buy on OLX.

If you think buying is easy, selling is even easier. All you have to do is post an ad on the website and you will be able to sell your property quite fast. To make it really successful there are several things you should do:

• Post an attractive picture of the item being sold

• Give a few details of the item

• Give price

• Give contacts

Your ads should always have the above details. This will make it easier for your potential clients to find the product they are looking for and also to get in touch with you. They know that the product is going for a certain price long before they call you. Back to the car again, if you are selling a car, you should take photographs. The thing with cars is that you might need more than one photo (though not a must) to improve the chances of a sale. Take snaps of the car from several angles and post on the website.

One thing you are assured of is that you will get several people contacting you when they check out the ads that you post. With millions of users, OLX is one of the fastest ways to sell items. There is the OLX app that is available on Google Play and Apple App Store. This app makes transactions on OLX so much easier and again, the app is also free! Perhaps, the reason why OLX is so popular is this – you get to do everything completely for free.
