Increase familiarity with fellow community members

The updated app has a required log-in feature to ensure that all buyers and sellers are registered. It’s a quick and easy process as all you’ll need is either your Facebook account or your mobile number.

One option is to use your mobile number where you can simply wait for a verification code to create your account.  The other option is to use your Facebook account, your profile picture is immediately synced to your OLX profile. Existing users that log in via mobile number can also sync their Facebook by simply going to “Settings” and tap “Facebook connect” to start the sync. This will help you to have a more complete profile page.

The improved profile page also eases any transaction by increasing familiarity among the OLX community. The profile page can show the user’s photo and name, registration date, verified accounts and ratings. You’ll be more familiar and comfortable with whom you’re transacting with. Assisting people in gauging trust-worthiness of all users is a mutual-rating system—both buyers and sellers can be rated after each transaction.

Effectively browse ads near you

Looking for that perfect item can take hours especially when different categories are lumped together in your search results. Luckily, the new app has a content first home screen that immediately shows ads that are within your vicinity.

Who knows? The perfect deal you’ve been waiting for might just be a few meters away! This feature allows you to close a deal in an instant!

Selling made easier and faster

On the “sell” function, one of the features is its ready-access to your phone camera making it more convenient to snap an actual photo of the item you’re selling. 

The app also introduces a new sell form which contains a couple of nifty features. Upon posting your picture and title, the form generates the category of the item you wish to sell. If you are unsure about the price, the form also generates a price suggestion that is based on prices indicated in similar ads.  The form practically auto fills making selling a lot easier!
