Classified advertisements exist for a long time. First, it became popular in print media where we used to scan for job, matrimonial and business related ads. The situation slowly changed with the evolution of Internet. Many companies such as OLX, post free ads in India here, created their own classified portal and provided a channel of communication between ellers and buyers.
OLX is a marketplace site where sellers post ads under various categories. Prospective buyers respond to the ads through the OLX user interface. If both the seller and buyer agree each other the selling process is initiated.
The ultimate product is shipped upon successful receipt of payment. If the buyer is from the same location as seller they will meet each other personally for the deal to complete.
As of the time of this writing, OLX, who also showcase more videos display the items under the following categories
OLX provides an ability to track advertisements based on the city and state you are living. If your current city is not available then you need to select your state.
Once you select your state, OLX will display only those ads which are posted by sellers in your state. You can further efine the search by selecting the relevant city name from the respective listing page.
You can easily post a classified ad by selecting Submit an Ad button located on the top of the OLX homepage. You will iew a list of categories. If you point your mouse over them it will display relevant sub categories.
You have to provide the required title, description, price and of couse your contact information so that prospective uyers will be able to keep in touch with you in case they are interested in your listing.
The products listed in OLX are normally used ones. Hence, as a buyer you should verify all the documents before purchase. For instance, if you buy a mobile phone through OLX you should verify the functioning, damages, included accessories and warranty related documents.
Time has changed. OLX also provides mobile apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and BlackBerry based devices such as smartphones and tablets.
