07 April 2015, 13:01

Lagos - Existing and prospective users of OLX Nigeria, the leading free classifieds ad site, now have access to a bigger and more diversified platform, following the company’s acquisition of Tradestable, its closest competitor in Nigeria.

A statement from OLX Nigeria reveals that, combining both platforms will make it faster and easier than ever for users to trade and turn their items into cash.

The statement added that, the acquisition would also give consumers access to more variety in products and services.

Commenting on the acquisition, the Country Manager, OLX Nigeria, Lola Masha stated that with the acquisition, users would be able to choose from a wider selection of items and be more successful in selling their own items to a larger audience of buyers.
