Russia-based marketplace horizontal Avito has launched its first-ever nationwide sale event. Only private sellers of clothes, accessories and homewares with a rating above 4.5 points can participate.

Avito said it would monitor these discounts to make sure they are genuine. If the algorithm determines that the price of an item has been increased before the start of the sale, then it will be excluded. The system will also check if the pre-discount asking price remained roughly the same during the preceding month.

The size of the discount is determined by the seller. The minimum discount is 5%, while the maximum is 80%. The sale will last until July 7.

In the meantime, Avito has won a Technology of the Year award for its Shopping on Credit project. This allows users to make purchases from private sellers on credit and has proved very popular with buyers, the company said.
