1. Terms and Conditions
2.What does it mean to be an OLX member?
OLX Philippines aims to be a family-safe website. To ensure this, we encourage everyone to observe our rules and follow our guidelines.
As an established online marketplace catering to interested sellers, inquiring an item or service must be done, in full coordination, with the advertisement seller only. You may either send a private message to the ad owner, or contact them through their posted mobile number, for any possible transactions. Such items and services are in their current facilities.
As a community-based system, OLX Philippines aims for a "self-moderated" community wherein members are encouraged to moderate their own posts, allowing and helping others to moderate theirs. This way, it will be easier to manage a continually growing community. The members manage the community and administrators. Any member is encouraged to report anything they believe is a violation of these rules and policies.
Your use of OLX Philippines is voluntary. We encourage you to register and become a member of the site. When you access our website, use our services or sign up for a membership, you agree to abide by all our rules and policies (including any amendments & addendums), which you affirm to have fully read and understood.

Upon learning that a minor has provided us his personal information, we immediately delete the account and all the minor’s personal information, from our system. However, this deletion does not cover the information collected during the course of the minor’s use of our services and it does not guarantee that the information provided by the minor was not used, prior to the deletion.
