OLX user shares D.I.F.M testimony

18 July 2016, 21:29

Lagos - An OLX D.I.F.M (Do it for Me) user has shared his testimony after easily and safely selling his car on the platform.

Due to a turbulent economy, people are more willing than ever to get rid of items they no longer need by selling them to earn extra income.

To make selling more convenient, quicker and safer than ever, OLX.com.ng recently launched a premium product, D.I.F.M (Do it for Me) where OLX Champs who are sales experts manage the entire selling process on the site from posting the item to closing the deal. This service is to address the needs of users who have no time to post and meet with potential buyers.

Akachi Wosu, a staff of FIRS Lagos recently sold his car on the platform using the OLX D.I.F.M (Do it for Me) service. Wosu stated that he had successfully used the platform for the past two years to buy items, but it never occurred to him to sell his car on the site until he had made several unsuccessful attempts trying to sell it through personal contacts and his mechanic.

“I had decided to take it off the market before my wife insisted that we book an OLX Champ for assistance.”

Wosu added that he was a bit skeptical, but contacted the Champ who assisted him in not only posting the car on the site, but also suggested the best price to sell his vehicle.

“Within 24 hours after the ad went live, the Champ informed me that he had a serious buyer and the deal was completed in a matter of hours.”

Wosu said his experience with the Champ was seamless, and commended OLX on being innovative and meeting the needs of busy executives like himself who are concerned about their safety and don’t have time to take calls from buyers. He also encouraged people to use OLX, especially the D.I.F.M service because it is very convenient, quick and hassle-free.

News24 had reported that OLX DIFM promo partnered with Film Producer and Director Kunle Afolayan to give put 10 tickets to the premiere of his latest blockbuster movie The CEO.
