Classified adverts don't have so much room in newspapers anymore and there are hardly any printed publications that are exclusively dedicated to these ads but that doesn't mean that they've totally disappeared. Just like with many other things, they've migrated to digital platforms with all the advantages that that entails.
And that's basically because by means of an online or mobile application we can be more extensive in terms of descriptions and accompany our advert by multimedia contents. Some years ago, web services of the likes of Craigslist or eBay saw the gold mine offered by the Internet, but the arrival and popularization of smartphones have been the boost it needed.
Thus, several different services including Wallapop have become tremendously popular as we can find in them almost anything: clothes, cars, phones, fashion items... and all the transactions are carried out between private individuals, shortening waiting times and making the price much cheaper.
Electronics, vehicles, gardening, decoration, cars, houses... anything you can think of can be found on OLX.
Among these applications, we have to point out OLX Classifieds, one of the most popular apps in countries of the likes of Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Argentina or Brazil, and that's also making its way in Europe via Portugal and Spain. And that's thanks to how simple and safe it is to purchase and sell second-hand products between particulars.
How OLX Classifieds works
If you decide to download the APK of OLX to start using its functions to sell any item you no longer want or need, or to purchase second-hand products at great prices, you just have to take into account the following info:
In the case of wanting to sell something, you need to sign up as a user, take a photo of the item in question, add a description and any complementary data to help locate it (where you're selling it) and share it.
If you're a buyer, just get in touch with the seller after registering on the app. The latter comes along with an internal messaging system so you can chat with the advertiser to arrange the details of the transaction.
The application includes the following features and functions:
- Find nearby offers thanks to geotagging.
- Control and manage adverts and favorites.
- Share adverts on social networks.
- Search for items sorted by categories.
Its geolocation function by GPS is very useful because it offers the user the possibility to search for anything depending on the distance to the item, and at the same time it allows the buyer and seller to arrange a meeting point to complete the transaction without having to send anything by mail or courier, saving on delivery expenses.
Without a doubt, OLX is definitely a great alternative to other similar apps to be able to get rid of any stuff you no longer want or to find bargains in second-hand products.
