We’re excited to announce the official opening of our new office today in the heart of Cebu Business Park. Joining forces with our Manila team, a bigger headquarters in Cebu means we’re getting closer to bringing online buying and selling to every Filipino, and improving their lives by bringing them together for win-win exchanges!

May 2014, we began operations with a couple of employees in a humble 7.5 square-meter shared office. Now, we’re moving to a 103-square-meter office that’ll serve as the main headquarters to connect every OLX buyer and seller in Cebu, as well as Visayas and Mindanao.

Regina Aguilar, our OLX Cebu Senior Marketing Manager, says the new office space will serve as a deal hub or a meet-up place for Cebu-based OLX sellers and buyers.

“Since our launch last year, many Cebuanos have said ‘yes’ to their yaman and are continuing to do so,” said Aguilar. “We want to encourage them to continue selling their 2nd hand items, and they can always consider meeting in the OLX office for a smooth and secure transaction.”

If you’re from Mandaue City, feel free to reach out to our friendly OLX brand ambassadors this coming April. They’ll be there for house-to-house visits to help you post your items on OLX. Gather all the 2nd-hand items around the home you no longer need, and they’ll guide you every step of the way in selling your item.

We’re also expanding our Cebu team, and looking at hiring more Customer Support and Marketing Staff. So, come join us in building something amazing that’ll benefit every Filipino.


Visit us at our new office, and be a part of our online buy and sell community in Cebu! The new OLX office is located at Unit 3 Ground Floor Mercedes Benz Tower, Mindanao Avenue, Cebu Business Park, Ayala Cebu City.


In the OLX.ph headquarters, we come across plenty of extraordinary facts as we get to know more about our local users and country everyday. Recently, we analyzed the number of items purchased per region in the Philippines, and came up with data you might find interesting.

We found the Top Selling Items Per Region, sorted it into the most popular categories, and compared Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao’s buying habits.
