We’ve been quite busy lately working on ways to improve your experience on dubizzle, from adding new services and features to new designs to meet your ever-evolving needs. Here’s a glimpse:
A- General Updates:
1. dubizzle and bayut merger
Following the recent merger between Emerging Markets Property Group (EMPG – bayut’s mother company) and OLX Group merger (dubizzle’s mother company), dubizzle and bayut join forces to form the region’s biggest unicorn. We’re proud that we are making history with being another successful Dubai homegrown story.
2. Motors and Classifieds ads validity
As things are slowly going back to normal worldwide and in UAE specifically, it’s important to stay safe and keep following the guidelines set by the Government. Back in April, we automatically extended all listings (Motors and Classifieds) that were placed after March 15th to allow sellers like you more time to find the right buyer.
On Thursday, June 18th, we deleted all ads that exceeded their original expiry date. If you still haven’t found the right buyer, consider posting a new ad.
Tip: you might want to reconsider the price, or try featuring your new ad for more exposure.
