Polish services vertical Fixly.pl has teamed up with PayU to launch online payments in its mobile app on Android and iOS. Both Fixly and PayU are owned by Prosus.

Payments are available in selected categories of Fixly and at selected contractors — they first have to agree to offer this option and undergo verification of their data. Once they did it, they can collect the agreed service fee from buyers via the Fixly app. Funds paid by the buyer are kept in PayU’s escrow account until the service is completed.

The OLX Group launched a fully operational version of Fixly.pl, with a listing section for tradesmen, in July 2017. In May, the site pivoted to focus on listings from the renovation and construction industries instead.

Apart from Fixly, Prosus’ OLX Group operates in Poland the general classified site OLX.pl, auto site Otomoto.pl, car-buying service 321sprzedane.pl, car subscription service CarSmile.pl, an international marketplace for used commercial vehicles and heavy machinery Tradus.com, and real estate sites Otodom.pl and Obido.pl.
