One of the largest online marketplaces with operations in over 45 countries globally, OLX has become the go-to option for a significant number of netizens ever since it was founded in 2006. The classified forum marketplace not only enables users to buy and sell things like cars, mobile phones, as well as rent or purchase property but also advertise via the platform.
If you were testing out the ad feature on the OLX app but it isn’t working out for you, or you need to edit the ad and wish to remove the listing to put up a new one, here is a short guide to help you do just that. Note that the steps are similar for Android and iOS as well as on the website via the browser. Below we’ve compiled the steps on the Android app.
How to delete OLX ad?
To delete your OLX ad, follow the steps below on your Android or iOS app. The steps for removing the advertisement via PC are mentioned following these.
