Purchasing and selling between particulars is very usual on the Internet. Ever since Craigslist or eBay appeared popularizing this concept, loads of other similar services have sprung up. And even more with the arrival of mobile phones: Wallapop, LetGo, Selltag...
OLX, to sell and purchase between particulars
In fact, many of these applications have adapted to Android and iPhone the traditional classified adverts found in newspapers, and the proof can be found in this OLX Classifieds for smartphones and tablets.
It's one of the most popular platforms to sell and buy new and second-hand objects between particulars. It's based on the mainstay of making it extremely easy to purchase or sell any product from the web or mobile application, reducing the process to just three steps: free publications, get in touch straight with the vendor or purchaser and selling or buying without fees.

Publishing an advert isn't at all complicated. In fact, part of the success of this kind of app probably resides in the simplicity of the process as we've only got to take a photo of the item we want to sell, add a description if we consider it appropriate (highly recommendable) and the price. And that's it: we'll just have to wait for a potential buyer to contact us if he or she's interested in purchasing our item.
Furthermore, it also incorporates a built-in instant messaging system by means of which the purchaser and vendor can chat and specify details about the transaction. The latter, since the application is based on a geolocation system, won't have to send anything by post mail or pay by means of bank transactions as everything can be carried out in person if both parties are near enough.
