A free shopping platform for used goods

OLX: Buy & Sell Near You with Online Classifieds is a free shopping mobile app that allows you to locally buy and sell items within your area. Developed by OLX Global B.V., this lifestyle app is an online marketplace that offers various categories of products. 

Similar to Myntra, OLX: Buy & Sell Near You with Online Classifieds features classic shopping app functions—allowing you to browse for items, list products for sale, and order whatever’s available. However, just like a lot of its competitors, this app fails to perform well enough for most of its users to have a good experience. 

Your experience will vary

OLX Group is an e-commerce flea market brand first known as “OnLine eXchange” in 2006. It started out as a classifieds website where you can sell items and buy preowned products from others who have also posted their listings. Eventually, it became a shopping hub where you can find new items, too, but its focus on local products sold by the people in your area was never lost.

Thanks to its popularity, it eventually got a mobile app for those who’d like to check out listings while on the go. Just like the website, OLX: Buy & Sell Near You with Online Classifieds allows you to browse for specific products, find verified sellers in your area and chat with them, discover great deals, and list your unwanted items to earn money. You can also get personalized alerts and recommendations.

However, this app’s performance leaves much to be desired. For one, the number of ads you can post is actually limited to two—and you must pay just to open up new slots for what you’re selling. This greatly hinders the market’s economy and discourages users from being on the platform more. Additionally, it often crashes and restarts, making you fail your transactions. 

Not the best choice

All in all, OLX: Buy & Sell Near You with Online Classifieds is one alternative you can use if you’re a fan of the OLX platform but it’s not the best iteration of this e-commerce brand. While you can post ads for your items, slots are limited so you can’t put up too many products for sale. Plus, the app’s performance is quite unstable and can be a hassle to use.
