OLX Nigeria, one of the biggest free classifieds advertising sites has acquired TRADESTABLE -- its closest competitor in Nigeria.
A statement by OLX Nigeria says that combining both platforms will make it faster and easier than ever for users to trade and turn their items into cash.
The statement further said that the acquisition would also give consumers access to more products and services variety.
The Manager, OLX Nigeria, Lola Masha stated that, ''At OLX Nigeria, we are committed to developing a high quality, online market place for consumers wanting to buy and sell across multiple categories including vehicles, mobile phones and electronics.
"OLX is excited about the opportunity to provide an improved classified platform with a broader product selection for buyers and sellers.
"We have a long-term commitment to our Nigerian users and we warmly welcome TRADESTABLE users to OLX.''.
She further guaranteed buyers and sellers, who had hitherto transacted business on the Tradestable platform, that the acquisition would provide a wider and larger audience of buyers and sellers and would allow them to benefit from product and customer service improvements on OLX.
She was quick to note how in less than 3 years of its launch in Nigeria, OLX has become a household name for consumer trade, where people can find buying and selling opportunities that can help them achieve success, earn extra cash and get a good bargain.
