OLX targets Kenya’s car dealers with Top Ads option


Online classified ads portal OLX will hold a car dealers’ conference at the KICC, Tsavo Ball room from 10.00 a.m. to 11.30 p.m. in Nairobi on Friday February 10, 2017.

The event targets car dealers with the paid advert option top ads that was recently launched.

Top Ads is a feature that enables display of Paid Content in a designated area of the OLX website and/or in a highlighted manner (depending on the platform the content is being viewed), so as to distinguish Paid Content from other content posted on the Website. The feature has been provided to enable users to draw attention to their advertisements and increase the likelihood of receiving responses from potential buyers.

The duration during which the client’s Ad will be displayed as a Featured Ad shall be the number of days specified at the time of purchasing the feature, or 30 days from the original date of posting the Content on the Website, whichever is earlier. There is no limit on the volume of Top Ads one may post on the OLX portal.

Upon selecting the Top Ads option while posting content on OLX, one is redirected to a third-party payment processing site such as PayU offering payment through various channels such as net banking, debit card and credit card.
