OLX.ph formerly Sulit.com.ph, the leading buy and sell website in the Philippines, expands in Cebu City. OLX.ph opens physical offices in key cities outside Metro Manila starting with Cebu this year, bringing OLX’s mission closer to Visayas. They are targeting 1 million sellers and are also planning to open offices in Bacolod City, Iloilo and Mindanao.
In yesterday’s launch of OLX Philippines in Cebu held at the Grand Convention Center, Chairman, President and managing Director RJ David said “The brand named was changed from Sulit.com.ph. to OLX.ph as a representation of our commitment to change how Filipinos perceive online selling. OLX wanted the customers to become sellers too, to get value from items that are just gathering dust in your home” .
The rebranding is simply a name change, David explains.,All things sellers and buyers came to love about Sulit.com.ph, such as wide variety of listings, free ad posting and multiple seller choices will still be reflected on OLX.ph.
OLX.ph encourages Cebuanos to take a second look inside their homes. Their potential wealth might be taking the form of unused handbags, clothes, books, speakers and appliances, all hiding in plain sight, he said.
Everyone can earn money from these unused personal items by joining OLX’s “Yesss, Yaman!” movement and becoming part of the next one million Filipinos selling their second hand items on OLX.ph.
He added that,”Filipinos do not have much of a tradition of selling second hand items so that most households end up with a clutter of items that are no longer used. If sold, this can turn into real value which people can use to buy new things. All they need is to take a photo of the item that may still be of value to others then post it on OLX.ph. They can also use their mobile phones to post an ad using OLX application available for iOS and Android users.
OLX.ph Philippines is committed to change how Filipinos perceive online selling and encourage them to join the millions of people around the globe who have already used OLX to sell their things, said Me-anne Bundalian, AVP – OLX Phils.
