OLX: Earn cash with unwanted Valentine’s gift

17 February 2016, 14:17

Lagos - The buzz of the Valentine’s Day might be over but unwanted gifts received by ex or current partners can be exchanged for cash using Nigeria’s number one online classified OLX.com.ng. 

While Valentine's is a season of showing love and sharing gifts, often times people get gifts that they already have or do not need and don’t know what to do with them.

Fifemayo Aiyesimoju, Brand Marketing Manager, OLX, stated that “the month of February is the perfect time to get rid of items that are no longer needed in the home, especially with the accumulation of gifts during the Valentine season.  Selling off these gifts will enable people earn some extra cash before they depreciate in value.”

This shows increased adoption and confidence from consumers when it comes to trading on online classified platforms.

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.
