2 weeks ago Mark and I put our first advert up on OLX.  I saw “Sweeny Todd: The demon barber of fleet street” for sale on Takealot, but it was part of a box set containing “The Corpse Bride” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, both of which I already owned.

Buying the single DVD was more expensive than buying the set because the set was on sale.  So Mark and I decided to sell or trade the two DVD’s we already owned for 2 movies we didn’t own.

We posted our advert on OLX on the Friday, offering our DVD’s for sale or trade.  On Saturday evening we had a response via Whatsapp, with a photograph of various DVD’s.  We chose to trade our two movies for Dodgeball and Faster.

I was surprised at how easy it was.  I hope that this will be a great beginning to getting rid of more items on OLX.

Have you sold, traded or given away anything using an online “classified” advert?  I’d love to hear about your experience in a comment below.
