Posting of duplicate Ads on OLX is prohibited. An Ad is automatically removed as duplicate by our system if:
1) An exact copy of the same Ad already exists on the site/same Ad is attempted for posting within 30 days.
2) The description or title in the Ad coincides with another live Ad.
3) The same Ad is attempted to be posted in different cities.
For more details on avoiding your Ads being duplicated, refer to tips below:-
- Similar products or services: Ex. For apartments in the same building or different models of the same product in different cities, please post a separate title with the main characteristics of the product and add the different options in the description.
- Title and description: To get best results please keep ad's title around 30 characters and provide unique information about your product in the description. Make your product stand out from other products and ads.
- Posting in multiple cities: An ad posted in a specific city can also be seen at the national level. Prospective buyers looking for postings in a single city can use a filter to see only the ads that appear there. However, a majority of our users do not specify a city and perform general searches, which show all posted ads from various cities in the country.
Please note: Our system automatically blocks such accounts which are detected to have been used for posting duplicate Ads.
