Ads limit on Property & Cars for Sale categories ads
Starting the 15th of March 2021, users looking to post more than one ad within 30 days in the Properties or Cars for Sale categories will have to subscribe to one of our new bundles or wait 30 days to publish another ad. If you don’t want to purchase a bundle, create your ad and we’ll save it and can post it for free after 30 days from the publishing date of the first ad.
Why is there an Ads limit on OLX?
Ads limits were introduced to benefit both buyers & sellers. Without limits, some users abuse and spam the platform with countless duplicated ads which creates clutter and spoils the buyers’ experience, reducing genuine, committed sellers the chance to sell their item. Bearing in mind that the limit on ads is only on specific categories and not on the entire platform.
What are Ad Limits?
Ad Limits is a limit imposed by OLX on the free ads that can be posted in either Properties categories or Cars for Sale category separately. Each user is allowed one free ad in each category every 30 days. This limit was done to improve the quality of ads on OLX and increase your chances of selling. This doesn’t mean you can’t keep on posting ads, you will still be able to post more ads by buying any of our ad bundles that can be found after creating your ad.
Do I now have to pay to post an ad on OLX?
No, you can post as many ads as you want for free except for the Properties category and Cars for Sale. In those 2 categories, you have one free ad every 30 days and you can keep posting within those 30 days by buying any of the ad bundles that are catered towards your different needs.
Which categories now have a limit on the number of ads that can be posted?
All categories are free to post as many ads as you want except only the Properties categories and the Cars for Sale category allow one free ad within 30 days after which you have to buy any of the ad bundles that are catered towards your different needs.
Can I edit my ad after it gets published?
If I delete my current ad, can I post another ad for free?
Unfortunately, no. The free limits are based on the posted ads, not the active ads, which means you’ll have to wait for 30 days to post it for free or if you wish to buy one of our bundles. Also, if you deleted a pending ad, the free limit will be delayed by 30 days starting from the date of deletion.
How can I purchase a paid ad after consuming my free ads?
After you consume your free ads and submit your new ad, you will be notified and prompted to head to our bundle's page where you can choose from either buying a single ad or any of our ad bundles to proceed with publishing your ad.
ًDo you have special packages for companies or a freelancer?
