What is Sell It For Me (FAQs)
The Sell It For Me service is a premium service from OLX where the posting and selling of items are done by verified OLX Champs.
Sell It For Me
The Sell It For Me (SIFM) service involves a verified OLX Champ posting a vehicle for sale on behalf of the seller. After posting on behalf of the seller, OLX takes over the responsibility of actively looking for a buyer for the vehicle. The OLX Champ not only posts the vehicle, but also manages the entire account, and oversees the entire transaction until he/she finds a buyer. The seller is only involved at the point of sale.
Here’s how it works:
- Go to the OLX website or OLX App and subscribe to the service and book a Champ.
- You are expected to pay an initial Sell It For Me Service commitment fee online.
- We will link you to one of our experts, verified Champs.
- You will get a call from the assigned Champ within 24hrs on working days.
