OLX Pakistan has certain Ad posting rules/policies, which needs to be followed:
- Counterfeit / Replica Products: Counterfeit or replica goods/ items are not permitted at OLX. This is because they infringe the intellectual property rights of brand owners and can also harm buyers. Brand owners routinely request that we remove listings of counterfeit goods. However, please know that we do not have the means to determine if the products are genuine or fake and hence; we only act upon the reports with sufficient information & from the recognized brands whose rights we can verify. Hence; one aspect of our policy is to block listings that are obvious counterfeits - for example, when sellers state this explicitly in the Ad.
At OLX we’re always striving harder to implement ways to build an even safer and trusted OLX community for all of our users and; hence, we keep on deploying efficient measures to put any deceptive or counterfeits listings off of our platform in line with OLX policy.
We fairly consider this a win-win for buyers & sellers both.For more details, please visit Items not allowed on OLX page.
