All about Free Ad Limits

What is Free Ad Limit? 

Free Limit defines how many Ads you can post for Free on OLX in 30/60 days. This means that you can only post an Ad today if in the last 30 days you did not cross your Free Limit (unless you pay for it).


Why do Free Ad Limits exist?

Free Limits are incorporated to benefit both sellers and buyers. Without limits, some users spam our platform with countless Ads including duplicates. This creates clutter which spoils buyer experience, and reduces a genuine, committed seller’s chances of selling.


If I delete my current Ad, can I post another Ad for free?

No. Free Limits and Paid Ads are both on the basis of Ads ‘posted’ and not ‘active’ Ads.

This means if you ‘posted’ 3 Ads in last 30 days and the limit is 3, you cannot further post for free ads regardless of these Ads being live or deleted by you. In case you have deleted a pending ad, the free limit will be further delayed by 30 days from the date of deletion.

Similarly, deleting a Paid Ad does not mean you can use another Ad in its place. Once your Paid Ad goes active, one unit from your Paid Ad Package is used up.


How can I purchase Paid Ads after crossing the Free Ad Limit?

You will be notified when you try to post an Ad after your Free Limits are over.

This takes you directly to buy Single Paid Ads or Packages of Paid Ads.  We recommend buying Packages for bulk discount.

You can also click on Post Now on a Pending Ad in My Ads section to activate by making payment.                                 


What are the modes of payment?

Online payment is currently available through:

  1. Visa, MasterCard or any Credit or Debit card
  2. Jazz Cash shop (you generate a code and take it to the nearest Jazz Cash shop to make the payment)
  3. If you are in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad or Rawalpindi then we can send a rider to pick up the cash from you with no extra charge. For details contact Customer Support 


How long will my Ad stay live?

Your Ad will stay live for 30 days from posting, regardless of when you post it within the validity period of your Paid Ad Package.


How can I track the Paid limits/Packages that I have purchased?

Any purchase for Ad limits/packages appears in your account under the Orders section.


Disclaimer: Free limit Paid Ad or Paid package will be considered valid only for a unique product offer. The Ad cannot be edited to post a different product subsequently. Doing so will lead to immediate termination of the free limit for that Ad and no refund will be provided.

If the account is banned due to policy violation, any available credits are forfeited.
