Starting in 2005, Dubizzle.com is a classified online platform for buying and selling goods. J.C. Butler and Sim Whatley launched the website, and it has now become the number one website for selling/buying goods for the people of the United Arab Emirates.
The working model of Dubizzle is pretty straightforward. If you are looking to sell an item, all you need is the pictures of the item, a catchy title and a clear, detailed description for the ad, and you are set to post at Dubizzle.com.
Dubizzle, continuing its development under the OLX group, is currently operating in 8 different countries, including Lebanon, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. Since its arrival in UAE in 2013, Dubizzle.com has captured many UAE-based startups like Wecashanycar, Expat Wheels, Masterkey and Airlist.
According to the reports, Dubizzle’s generates $40m per year based on the revenues. If you want Dubizzle to sell it for you, you have to pay a fee of AED 499+Vat. The fee also includes the price for a featured advertisement.
