OLX, Diamond unveil ‘Do It For Me’ service

Online classifieds leading site in Nigeria, OLX.com.ng has unveiled a premium product tagged ‘Do It For Me’ (DIFM) on Diamond Bank’s Tech Turks, reports ITRealms.

Speaking at the occasion, Diamond Bank’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Uzoma Dozie, said DIFM helps users manage the posting and selling of items on the website.

“Users who have no time to post, meet with potential buyers or want their privacy protected can entrust the sale of their goods to the OLX Champs who are sales experts,” says Lola Masha, Country Manager, OLX Nigeria.

She explained that DIFM service comes in two forms, namely “Post It For Me (P.I.F.M) where the OLX sales champs manage the posting of items for users on the site and Sell It For Me (S.I.F.M), where the entire process is managed from posting the item to actively finding potential buyers until the item is sold.”

D.I.F.M, she equally said comes with a minimal fee for OLX users and the product is only available in Lagos but there are plans to extend in other parts of the country. Interested users can apply for it here.

Daan Sanders, CEO Middle East & Africa, OLX said during an interview on Tech Turks that “D.I.F.M is another innovative way our platform makes life easier and safer for our users”. 

Also, he said, their number one priority in Nigeria is trust, safety and with the help of OLX Champs people who are skeptical about using the platform could be rest assured that the OLX champs will manage the posting and sale of the item for them.

“We continuously reinvent the classifieds business model to fit the local market. The DIFM model is convenient, will keep our users safe and help buyers and sellers close deals quickly,” Sanders said.

ITRealms notes that OLX is the world's leading classifieds platform in growth markets and is available in more than 45 countries and over 50 languages. OLX connects local people to buy, sell or exchange used goods and services by making it fast and easy for anyone to post an ad through the mobile app. Every month, hundreds of millions of people in local markets around the world use OLX's online marketplace to find and sell a wide range of products, including vehicles, electronics, phones and much more.
