My first ever selling experience with OLX

This article is all about my first ever experience with OLX when I sold a book 'Word Power Made Easy' by Norman Lewis. Read the article to get insight of my experience.

OLX India is one of the best online market place or free classified website which allows everyone to sell or buy products online. If you want to sell an item, you should simply submit the free advertisement on OLX website. It does not cost you at all. Its free for all. The item you would like to sell or buy may be anything like books, bikes, furniture, mobiles, electronics, fashion, kids items, services, real estate or job you are looking for or offering.

My first thought or Idea to sell on OLX

I was using a book which was of edition 2005. The book name was 'Word Power Made Easy' by Norman Lewis. The book is all about building English vocabulary from basics and historical point of view. The book is very famous for its content and English language study. As the book was very old but in a good condition, my wife asked me to sell it on OLX if possible and buy new book of same title and same author with latest edition. I have never tried anything before that on OLX to sell an item. Rather than throw it off or giving it to waste book collector, I tried to use my luck to sell that book on OLX.

How I sold a book on OLX?

I first installed the OLX on my Android mobile phone (Moto G first generation). Immediately I registered there and tried to get used to the OLX application. I was asked to select my area location. Followings details is asked when you submit an advertisement at OLX.

  • Category: One should select appropriate category of item like books, furniture, mobile, fashion, kids, services, job etc

  • Photo submission: One should submit a real photo of an item to get good response from buyers.

  • Title and Description: The title and description give complete detail about the product

  • Contact information: One should submit mobile number so that one can directly contact with buyers

  • After filling all above information, my first advertisement was published. I was exited to see the response. As I have set very less price for the book, within three hours of posting that advertisement, I got a chat message that someone is willing to buy the book. We chatted regarding the book and related stuffs. After some price negotiation, we fixed up meeting location near my work place. As the ad was published in local area near to me, buyer agreed to meet me at my location. On very next day, we met at 6.00 pm, and the book was handed over to that person. This was the first time, I felt that OLX is really working for normal person like me !


    I sold Word Power Made Easy book by Norwan Lewis on OLX within a day of posting on website via OLX App. Try to deal more on chat before fixing deal and meet the buyer. Chat will save all your negotiations and help to get clear idea of selling or buying or even comparing more than one buy or seller for an item. Like me, anyone can sell or buy on OLX. It is really working.
