Rocket Internet has launched a new online classifieds platform, Vendito, where people can buy and sell almost anything in their cities.
Vendito, a Latin word for hawk and sell, is similar to OLX, connecting buyers to sellers in several cities and regions of a country. The site is already live as Vendito.com, and in Senegal at Vendito.sn, in Uganda at Vendito.co.ug and Vendito.co.tz in Tanzania.
With Vendito, Rocket Internet looks to providing a free, easy-to-use, fast and localized website that connects buyers and sellers locally to buy or sell their used items or provide services.
According to Rocket Internet, “Vendito is an online classifieds website where people can buy and sell almost anything in their cities, from electronics, cars, real estate to jobs and services. Currently we operate in Myanmar, Asia, under the name of Ads.com.mm which is the largest classified website in the country with more than 150 000 visits per month. As part of our ambitious goals we recently stepped foot in West and East Africa, first milestones to our inspiring journey.”
