Because of the multi – coronavirus (Covid-19), the mission is almost impossible to find items such as face masks and alcohol gel, at pharmacies or markets. This scenario has made the prices for these items soar in the online stores. This, however, is the OLX promises to prevent.
- Buser, suspends bus trips due to a coronavirus
- The streaming videos and TV channels that are opened or at a discount by a coronavirus [Covid-19]
At OLX, which operates as a sort of online classifieds, it records an average of over 7 million active users per day. It is natural, therefore, that the platform will be used for the sale and purchase of items that are related to the prevention of a new coronavirus — a quick search shows that it’s easy for you to find deals in alcohol, gels, and face masks out there.
It’s just as easy, is to find those products with a price much above those which are usual for the market, and because of this, the OXL claims to have stepped up their efforts with their teams and the quality of to curb the excesses. The publications, which present values considered to be exploitative (with the price above the top of the tables in the official market) will be blocked.
The ad, which makes the misuse of the term “coronavirus” or the like, may also be removed, which may result in the suspension of the officers responsible for this publication.
If we look at the number of daily users on the platform, and the challenge is great. In any case, the offers to be unfair, or publications that are not in line with the practices for the prevention of coronavirus (Covid-19) will be reported in a dedicated channel within the Center of the Help of OLX.
This is a decision for you alone. Also this week, the Free-Market, announced measures to curb price abuse of alcohol, gels, and masks on their platform.
In addition to this, the Senacon (National Department of Consumer), and the camara-e.net (Brazilian Chamber of Electronic Commerce) has created a channel for consumers to report prices are extortionate in the online retail products that are associated with the prevention of a coronavirus.
