OLX Has Acquired Tradestable? by ewizard1: 6:05pm On Mar 18, 2015
Hello,

I used these sites so much to look for stuffs to buy.

This evening, i looked up some things on OLX and didnt find any.

I switched to Tradestable and got this message! (Picture attached )

I checked online and didnt find any news about it.

It seems OLX has bought over TradeStable (its closest competitor) and is redirecting all traffic from the Tradstable site back to it.

Reports has it that this development comes as a shock as financiers (Schibsted and Naspers) of the two companies never mentioned a merger in the works between the two companies in Nigeria despite having done same in four different countries.

One of the reports even quotes Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO of Schibsted Media Group, last year during the merger of their companies in Brazil, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Thailand as saying that: “Schibsted, our existing partners and Naspers have all been at the forefront in developing high quality, online marketplaces for consumers wanting to buy and sell in a number of emerging markets. By joining forces, we will be able to further develop these market places even more efficiently.”

A visit to TradeStable.com makes news of the merger more convincing as you’re greeted with a notice of the takeover and a redirection to OLX’s website.

This probably means that we can expect to see more such partnerships in countries where both OLX and Schibsted are present.

Saw the same Bro. I think you are right. but come to think of it, both sites are scammers headquarters. Go check through the posts. you are unlikely to see genuine sellers. sharp guys trying very hard to earn a living. Not for me as i always carry my A.47 if i have to meet any seller. Mess with me and i will do to you what they do to Barawos

I kept on wondering what happened to nairalist... Please oga seun ... do the needful

we need NAIRALIST back.

OLX has succeeded in buying the only site with the least scams.
I guess we'll stick to Nairaland.

Re: OLX Has Acquired Tradestable? by Etinosajay(m): 12:44pm On Mar 20, 2015
There r still genuine sellers on OLX. I sell on olx and tradestable and mobofree.

Buyers just have to be cautious, that's it.

* Meet at a very public place.
* Do not send an advance
* do not send recharge cards
* check items thoroughly.
* don't be in a hurry

It makes no difference.


They should take their hustle offline...and try to verify some of the sellers.
