OLX is now Carousell

I have a verified Carousell account.  Carousell is now one of the world’s largest and fastest growing classifieds marketplace,  to which I have signed up a year ago. 

I joined Carousell before to sell my preloved items (clothes, shoes and some swatched but sterilized makeups) online, and some of my new clothes with tags on it. I never thought that I would make friends with some of my followers to which has become my "suki". 

The good thing about Carousell is that some of the preloved branded items that I have scored feels and still looks new. I have never encountered bogus sellers, as of this writing. Thanks to Carousell. The app is easy to browse and explore. Some of the hard to find items are in there. You just have to look and browse further for your items. The possibilities are endless. 

The good news is that OLX has merged with Carousell. 

Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing classifieds marketplace, has announced that OLX has merged with Carousell in the Philippines to form a single platform under 

“This partnership between OLX and Carousell is a game-changer and it revolutionizes everything about the e-commerce space in the Philippines,” said Raffy Montemayor, General Manager of Carousell Philippines. “Starting from 15 July, Carousell will become the Philippines’ leading classifieds marketplace platform, offering Filipinos the best shopping experience and inspiring them to start buying and selling online.”

This merger brings together the best-in-class features from both platforms and will enable users to securely shop with ease online. Buyers and sellers on Carousell can leave feedback for each other after successfully completing a transaction, adding credibility to their profiles. 

One of the most frequently-used features on Carousell is smart listings powered by artificial intelligence. With smart listings, sellers can streamline their selling process to just seconds by taking a photo of their item. Carousell’s AI will auto-fill listing fields such as category, title, and even suggest a price based off other similar listings. Sellers can also take advantage of Carousell’s free unli-posting where they can get unlimited free ads in selected categories to maximize their sales. 

New users can also look forward to Carousell’s vast community of buyers and sellers. Find groups to join and start buying and selling with friends, people of similar interests or communities that you care about. 

As part of the merger, Property24 will now be part of Carousell Philippines. This partnership will elevate “The Power of Two” and brings together the country’s top real estate portal and the leading classifieds marketplace platform. Posting on Property24 entitles the real estate seller to cross-sell with the massive audience of Carousell.
