At the opening launch of OLX.ph Cebu City office at the Grand Convention Centre of Cebu, they encourages Filipinos to take a second look inside their homes.
Selling has never been so simple, easy, and stress free. Just take a picture of your unneeded item along with your price and contact details, then send away. How cool and practical is that.
Sulit.com.ph, the Philippines’ leading buy-and-sell website, is now OLX.ph. The new name emphasizes a stronger focus on making it faster and easier for ordinary Filipinos to sell their things online, connect with others to meet up, and complete transactions.
Aside from providing a more convenient platform, OLX will also focus on growing its C2C business by encouraging every Pinoy to sell their unused items. David observes that “Filipinos do not have much of a tradition of selling 2nd hand items so that most households end up with a clutter of items that are no longer used. If sold, these can turn into real value, which people can use to buy new things.”
It’s very easy to use. You just have to take a photo of your item then post it at http://www.olx.ph/. Within minutes, your item will appear on OLX.ph. And, Yesss, Yaman agad!
You can even use your phone to sell your items. Just download the OLX App which is available for iOS and Android users.
Now, it’s time for every Filipino to become online sellers, just check your homes for items that are no longer being used and SELL it on OLX.ph.
About OLX (formerly Sulit.com.ph)
RJ and Arianne David founded Sulit.com.ph in September 2006 with a capital of P2,400.00 which they used for the domain name ‘Sulit.com.ph’ and website hosting fees. They initially launched it as an experimental website to see which niche market was best to target but after seeing the traffic spike in all categories, it seemed launching a general classified ads website was the most logical choice.
RJ acted as the web developer-slash-architect-slash-master-SEO while Arianne played the role of web-designer-slash-test engineer. The site’s traffic continued to increase so the founders eventually left their day jobs to pursue full time management of Sulit.
With the site’s unexpected rapid growth, the founders decided to incorporate Sulit.com.ph under a corporation. The company was incorporated in January 25, 2008 under the name Netrepreneur Connections Enterprises, Inc. (Netcon) but remained to be a home-based business.
In August 2009, RJ and Arianne closed an investment from Naspers, a South Africa-based multinational mass media company with businesses holding leading market positions in different regions of the world.
It was also during this time that the founding group moved their operations from their home in Angono, Rizal to a new office in Ortigas Center and started hiring more team members that led to the development of intensive website features designed to make buying and selling online a lot faster and easier for Filipinos.
