OLX Pakistan has been changing the landscape of Pakistan’s free online classified ads very successfully. Those who are not aware of the definition of classified ads, it is necessary to mention that classified ads are small and brief ads in a newspaper. Now OLX is providing this facility online for Pakistani internet users for free and has been very successful. OLX is operating globally in 96 different countries and facilitate its users in 40 different languages. Although it is having stiff competition with “Craiglist” but still OLX is considered the next generation free classified ad website because it has the capability to integrate with Social Networking Websites. It has 150 million unique visitors per month. Co-founded in 2006 by Fabrice Grinda and Alec Oxenford, it has grown to become the largest free classified ads website in the world.
Competition in Pakistan is relatively small and the ad dimensions offered by OLX are not offered by any other competitor’s website. Some competing websites are and which is evidence that digital advertisement is getting more and more popular in Pakistan.

OLX functions as a connection between buyers and sellers. Sellers can give their ads on OLX and interested buyers can contact the seller and they can settle the deal with each other. Not only buying and selling of products, ads for real estate, services and events are also entertained at OLX Pakistan’s website.
OLX Pakistan has proposed a simple solution to problems involved in online selling and buying, trade, discussion of products and services, organising events and meeting the people near to you, no matter where you live in Pakistan. You can publish an advertisement accompanied by videos and pictures as well as control your merchant activities via My OLX and also give maximum exposure to your advertisements on social media just by registering on OLX Pakistan website. OLX is also accessible through mobile.

Not only products but services can also be exchanged at OLX Pakistan as the employers can post a job and those who wish to provide their services can contact the employers.
It would be safe to say that OLX Pakistan has transformed the way products and services are advertised in Pakistan and now anyone can do business sitting in their home in front of a computer.

  • no doubt olx is a great website but here i want to share a disadvantage of olx ads for free advertiser.when you post ad in olx for few minutes your ad remain on 1st page of olx but after few minutes when other people posts ads in same category your ad disappear from 1st page and after few hours your ad go to 4th to 5th page so what happens you know people mostly view 1st 3 pages of any website so your add mostly not gets views so post your ads in some fresh websites like Asan Classifieds so your ad remain at least one day at 1st page of that category to get more views and it will increase the chances of selling thanks

  • Yeah Olx is the best website for posting ads. I have been posting ads for MestroSoft.PK for about a month and response of good. There are many websites online but Olx has best response and result.

  • Hi,
    I read an ad on olx by jenny peck: [email protected] asking for paid content writers to work for her. I applied for the job and got shortlisted. She clarified in the beginning that she would make payments on a particular date, 27th of September 2015. From that date on wards, she did not apply. It's been two weeks now. I have been scammed for about $250 now. It is really disappointing. Ad ID is : 815648713 … I don't know what to do now.

  • is a famous web for buy and sell. Though, there are some issues which I perceived when I started using it regarding posting an add, its about limited information about the product and seller

  • has low visibility in some aspects. I faced problem while finding a page for sign up
