Giddiphones, a classified adverts website dedicated to phones and phone accessories has launched in Nigeria.
According to the creator of the site, Babayemi Olulana, the website aims to bridge the “huge gap in the way generic sites like OLX list mobile devices”. The platform lets users buy and sell phones and phone accessories like any other classifieds website.
He further explained that the phone category on sites like olx.com are not adequately categorized, and there is presently no classified ad site that exclusively caters to phones.
Babayemi is positioning Giddiphones to replicate the success that classified ad sites like Cheki and PrivateProperty have recorded in their niche markets.
The platform launched in November, and while the pickings are still on the slim side, however, listings are growing weekly.
To list an advert on the website is currently free, pending growth, with interim monetisation via advertising.
The site is www.giddiphones.com
