OLX Launches Its Phone Verification System in Pakistan
Speaking about online buying and selling, a major cause of concern for most buyers and sellers is whether either party will complete the transaction. Buyers question the authenticity of the product in question while sellers worry about payment. This applies to online marketplaces, too, due to the fact that there is no guarantee that the other party will abide the terms and conditions of the agreement.
OLX, the biggest online marketplace in Pakistan, as always dealt with the uncertainty and devised a unique method to reinforce a sense of trust between buyers and sellers by launching ‘Phone Verification’ feature on the platform. This feature not only verifies anyone looking to sell a particular product online but also give a sense of security to buyers. The main benefit
- Buyers are more likely to interact with sellers who they know can be trusted due to the verification logo.
- Sellers with the verification logo attract more offers.
Once again, with this feature, OLX proved that it wishes to make transactions safer and is in tune with the demands for its users, making OLX available at the right time and at the right place with trust and convenience..
OLX’s swift response to user demands enabled it to receive favourable reviews. As a result, many feel that OLX is a company that understands their sentiments and this strengthens their trust in and loyalty to the online classifieds marketplace.
