Tips for Buying online
Online purchases have numerous benefits but there are those who are sceptical about the concept. This is not because of bad experience but because these sceptics are new to online shopping. If you are someone who recently came across a product that you wish to own but aren’t sure about purchasing it from a seller on OLX, here are a few tips that you should bear in mind:
Use our online chat feature
This can help you cut down costs because you wouldn’t have to call or text the seller- you could just chat online, for free instead. This would also remove the need to set up several meetings and you could just meet the seller once you are completely sure you want to buy what he or she has to offer.
Ask the seller/buyer for identification
This works both ways: both parties should show some identification (ID cards and/or drivers’ licenses would suffice). Some people get sceptical because they do not feel secure about the person that they’re dealing with. Identification will help remove suspicions and insecurities.
Meet and pay via cash
If you’ve decided to meet the seller, set a meeting with him or her in a café or restaurant and take a friend with you. Since you’ll be purchasing second-hand products, you need to ensure what you are investing in, is in good shape. Furthermore, cash payments are always safer and better than online payments under such circumstances. You won’t have to worry about inaccuracies or about sending money to the wrong bank account.
