People used to buy and sell stuff at markets in the past but now this is done mostly online. Online free classified apps helps in making shopping an easier proposition for one and all. OLX is one such app which is quite useful when it comes to buying and selling stuff without having to deal with any middle man. The app did ask access to a lot of personal information upon installation. This is not a welcome thing. Invading on someone's privacy like that is not something anyone likes, myself included. However, it might only be my grievance. You might not find it so annoying.
As for the features of this free classifieds go, they are quite remarkable and offer great incentives to both buyers and sellers. First off, you get the chance to post ads for free. The process of posting the ads is simple enough too. Just take some photos of the item you wish to sell using the camera of your Smartphone or upload them directly from your device's gallery, add a little information about the item and include some contact information of yourself. Viola! Your ad is ready to be posted. You can post as many ads as you want. Sweet! Isn't it?
This free classifieds app is ideal for making purchases and gives buyers the chance to meet up and chat with the sellers via messaging and online chat. It is a fast and efficient means of getting sellers and buyers to finalize their deals. There are no middlemen involved here and you get to directly chat with the person selling the item you need. The in-app messaging feature of OLX is extremely safe to use and quite reliable too. All the dealings and conversations taking place are secure so there is no need to worry. I personally found this feature quite beneficial. It helped in quickening the sale process a lot and I was able to get item I was looking for more easily and in a quicker manner.
OLX does a fine job of putting your ads at the forefront. All of the recently posted ads are put in the spotlight. This ensures that your ad gets the most exposure and the buyers that are interested in your item get to see it quickly. With this free classifieds app, you can get your ads featured as well. You will have to pay a little in order to avail this incentive, though. I was pleased with how the app handled the ads and went about highlighting them. It was really nice to see as it benefited both the sellers and the buyers.
