OLX Pakistan Acquires Asani.com.pk

OLX Pakistan has acquired Asani, a local listings competitor which had been gaining steam after a heavy marketing campaign.

This latest acquisition marks an increasing trend where startups in Pakistan get acquired before they can pose a threat to the well established companies with deep pockets.

The details of the OLX acquiring Asani were not made public, but reportedly all Asani customers will be acquired by  OLX and Asani will be redirected to OLX in a whole. Various parts of Asani website are already being redirected to OLX website.

  • selling on olx has been a nightmare for months now.
    I cannot offer bulk products sale .
    So if I have multiple colors then I have to post separate ads as olx duffers donot allow multiple products images in one ad. Also my ads contents should also be different.Does olx want to be a retail selling point or only for old articles ?

  • Pakistani made Pakistani owned

    seems like they want to build something similar to ebay … online auctions and storefronts are already there.

  • asani should not be sold , if this trend continue no single pakistani startup will be at international level
