Sulit.com.ph is more than its worth | Not Just An Ordinary Classified Ads Site


21 comments

I am one of the living proof that Sulit.com.ph is the #1 Online Classified Ads in the Philippines and the most trusted, too when it comes to buy and sell industry. Let me share to you how I found Sulit.com.ph.

Last year, my husband and I planned to buy a second-hand car, when we already have the budget, of course, we were itching to ride our own “baby”, so we looked literally “everywhere”. Almost every day, we bought several types of classified ads newspapers and even resorted to have a peek at a car finder. The only problem with these is that there is no photo of the cars being sold so it was difficult fot us to find the “perfect one”.

There was this one car that we saw (the description) in the car finder which was available near my cousin’s place, so we went to my cousin to ask help in finding that place. When we saw the car that was advertised in the car finder, I was dismayed because it’s not that “good” as described. So, we went back to my cousin’s place for chitchat and before we entered his house, I just saw a red car parked just outside the gate. Obviously, I didn’t ask if that car was for sale because even if it was, I know I can’t afford it based on the car’s “appearance”. But honestly, I was struck by the “love at first sight” thing with that red car. Unfortunately, my husband and I went home without a car…yet.

 Because of that red car, I already have an idea of what I will look for when I search for cars for sale online. Naturally, that’s what I did when we got home; I immediately opened our computer, connect to the internet and painstakingly googled for an affordable second hand red car but definitely in good running condition.

That’s when I landed at Sulit.com.ph. Browsing the site’s wide collection of cars for sale, I was really surprised that the red car I saw at my cousin’s place was the one I was looking at being for sale at Sulit!

Was it really destiny? Amazing, isn’t it? You may think I am making this up, but honest to God, this is true! What’s more unbelievable is that, the price was not as “high” as I expected and our budget fitted! Of course, I called Monch, my husband, to let him see the car, and he, too, was unbelievably astonished!

Despite the excitement, we still checked for other important details about the car and we learned that it was a 2001 Honda Civic car. In addition, we also checked for the authenticity of the seller through Sulit’s Seller Feedback and Sulit Check, wherein prospected buyers can check how the dealer/seller is trusted by other buyers that they have made transactions with.

Again, to make the long story short, we made the “deal” and bought the red 2001 Honda Civic car! It’s really in good condition and until now, I seldom experience problems using it! I’m just glad I discovered Sulit.com.ph.

My Rose – 2001 Honda Civic without the tint.. =D

Another interesting fact is that, I am also a Sulit member for years now because I also sell my KSA products in Sulit.com.ph, as well as, advertised the Bus For Rent service offered by my cousin; so far, I encountered no problem with the transactions or deals made between me and the buyers/customers through Sulit.

  1. Cute ng comics! I’m a fan of Sulit too! Di na yata uso ung printed classified ads. ang hirap maghanap dun puro pa scammer. buti na lang may Sulit na =)

  2. I am a huge fan of Sulit too! 🙂 I have used it several times in looking for suppliers, as well as when we had to look for apartments to rent. Sulit is definitely easy to use, and a very clean interface to match.

    1. Hi Sammy, my fellow Sulitizen!

      What I love about sulit is their continuous improvement process. Recently, they launched their wew website feature which is the Location-specific Homepage. This update allows you to automatically filter ads that are within your choice of location.

      So mas madali for us para maghanap ng magandang deal =D

  3. Ngayon ko lng nalaman na ang Sulit ay acronym ng SUper Low Internet Trading. anggaling.
    DYan ako lagi nagtitinggin ng mga gamit para sa business namin. praktikal at di ubos oras

    1. yes sis! I’ve been using sulit for years now. pero biggest purchase ko tlga ung car. sabi nila it was a risk kasi sa online, pero kampante nmn ako dahil sa features ng sulit, pwdeng iwasan mga scammers / fraudulent sellers! =D

  4. madalas din ako tumingin sa Sulit pero wala pa ako nabibili gamit ang hi-tech na classified na yan 🙂 gusto ko yung tagline nila Hanap, Usap, Deal!

    at syempre ang comic strip hehehe. kahit mahaba ang post di nakakatamad basahin 🙂

  5. While I was reading the comics, I could hear in my mind exactly how you two would have said those lines. LOL! About Sulit, I’ve never really tried buying anything through it but my hubby has made transactions several times already. Mostly buying accessories for his bike and his car. So far, he hasn’t had any negative experience using Sulit.

    1. hahaha! Olga natatawa pa rin ako until now pag naalala ko ung scenario na yun. it took him almost 2 to 3 hours para makakita ng magandang deal sa print classified ads, and nung pagcheck namin nung car, sobrang disappointed kami.

      so nung nagdecide nko sa online magtingin, in less than an hour ang dami ng choices… thanks sa sulit.com.ph ang bilis at d pa sayang sa oras =D

  6. Sulit is also a big help to our company. This is where we advertise the products and services that we offer. One of the nicest parts of this site is the feedback portion from the clients. So there you can see the two sides – seller’s information and feedback from their previous clients.

    I hope Sulit will continue its mission of being a transparent and trustworthy marketplace.
