OLX and the Growth of their Mobile App

This international company of free online classifieds has recently shared their growth data with the general public. We all know about OLX since it has been on TV and the internet for quite a while now. Therefore, we can also imagine how massive this site where buyers meet sellers has become in the past couple of years. Still, these growth statistics are still quite impressive.

Less than two months ago, in July, OLX achieved the goal of getting half a billion hits on their webpage. Just that one month alone. Only a month later, they topped this figure buy a handful of millions. Now, that is a lot of people.

Their annual growth rate has been of 653%. You don’t even have to stop and think about it to realize just how huge that is. OLX is about selling and buying stuff online through ads. Individual sellers are responsible for most of the transactions. Used stuff such as mobile phones, computers, furniture, cars, etc, make up almost 70% of all of these ads posted by individuals.

Needless to say, the company is very happy with these figures, especially since most of their improvement has been possible thanks to their mobile app and that is for sure going to provide them with more visits in the following months.

OLX Classifieds for Android and iOS have made a huge difference. The implementation of their app has definitely been a great idea on their side.


First of all, bear in mind that this is all free of charge. And that is great, because it means that it is right there for everyone to use. Second, it is very simple. If you want to learn how to use it, download the app from their website and follow these simple steps with me:

Do you have something to sell? Take a picture of it with your phone. Now log into the app and simply upload the picture. (Don’t have an account yet? Create it. It will only take a minute and it is surely worth it).

Once your picture is uploaded, you will be given the option to add a description. Just type in whichever features you think are best about it, as well as how much you are expecting to get for it and your contact information. And now post it! Or take some more time to better customize it, up to you!

Sounds good? You are definitely not alone if you are looking forward to giving it a try.
