We’re excited to introduce to you #TheNewOLX! We’ve heard you and made it even easier and safer to buy and sell near you, starting with search.
The biggest change to search is that it’s specific to your preferred location and there are now multiple ways to find what you’re looking for. Because millions of ads are posted nationwide, starting first with your specific location makes the results more relevant to you.
You can now search for the best deals nearest to you in a few different ways. The way we see it, some people like their chips with tomato sauce on the side and others like it drizzled over everything. Some people bite their Cadbury slab of chocolate and others break off a piece. So, why must we all search the same?
When you type in an item specific search, we’ll show you items closest to you. The most recently posted ads will be marked as New. As you scroll down your feed, the radius of the search expands to as far as 600km. So you can search a larger area for deals, starting with those closest to you. Why trek when there’s a win-win deal around the corner?
2. Pin Drop
Is your small town or street address usually hard to find in searches? Or are you, for example, on holiday in Cape Town and are on the hunt for hot deals back in Joburg? You can search by simply dropping the pin on the map on either your current or preferred location. Zoom in and out of the map and drop the pin on your preferred location.
