History

OLX was co-founded in 2006 by internet entrepreneurs Fabrice Grinda and Alec Oxenford in Argentina. Today it is one of the world's leading free classifieds online platforms, available in more than 40 countries and 50 languages.

Every day millions of people across the globe use OLX to buy and sell goods and cars, find a job or rent a house. The OLX platform has over 200 million monthly unique users generating traffic of over 11 billion monthly page views or around 360 million page views per day. The group has 1200 employees across offices in Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Delhi, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon and New York.

Naspers initially acquired a 67,8% holding in OLX.inc in August 2010, subsequently increasing it to 95%. As part of an initiative to transform OLX into the world’s largest brand for consumer-to-consumer (C2C) trade, Naspers recently consolidated its online classified services in the Philippines, Thailand, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Indonesia and re-branded them to OLX.
