Online shopping is the new cool. Not just in Nigeria but in the world over. On the international scene, you would hear about online stores like Ebay, Amazon, www.forsale.plus,Walmart and BestBuyto mention few. These are stores that are making millions of dollars from retailing online.
Nigerians are not alien to the concept either, even though we are still struggling to get it right. But some Nigerian stores are really doing well, working hard to gain the trust of Nigerians and join one of the fastest growing industries in the world.
Some of the best online shopping stores in Nigeria in terms of service, excellence, coverage and popularity include the following:
No offence, but except you’ve been living in a rock, you would have heard about jumia.com.ng .Jumia is one of the first online stores to really capture the attention of Nigerians.
What makes Jumia really unique is that you can get almost anything you want from them, from cosmetics to electronics, groceries,clothing and accessories, the list is endless. Jumia also offers special discounts and promotions from time to time.
On the heels of Jumia came Konga.Konga started their business few months after Jumia and they have really worked hard to remain at the forefront of e-commerce in Nigeria.
What makes Konga really unique is that they have a number of independent retailers under them. They encourage individuals like you and I who may have one or two things to sell online to come and use their platform to sell it. This makes it easy for their customers to find just about anything they want in their store.
Slot is a Nigerian brand known for their specialization in computers, mobile phones and other related gadgets.
Slot has been selling offline for quite a while before they took a smart move to make their products available to their customers online as well. You can shop on their website by visiting slotlimited.com.
4. Parktel Online
Parktel is another store leading the trend of online shopping in Nigeria.
On parktel online, you can buy just about any mobile phone, tablets and accessories you want.Parktel is based in Lagos but delivers to anywhere in Nigeria.
Kara specializes in selling electronics and home appliances. If you need to buy stuffs like generating sets, televisions, DVD’s, home lightning products, home and kitchen appliances or even automobiles, kara.com.ng is the place to go.
This is an online shopping store with a difference. It’s not just your conventional online store, if you’re looking to buy items for dirt-cheap here in Nigeria, then you should visit Dealdey.
Another online store that deserves to be mentioned is kaymu.com.ng.
On Kaymu, you can buy items like mobile phones, shoes, jewelry and watches and several other items. Kaymu also adopts a business model that brings buyers and sellers together on one platform.
Mystore.com.ng is another unique online store that specializes in sales of gift items. If you are confused about gifts to buy for your loved ones, a visit to mystore would leave your head bubbling with several ideas.
Also, you can send your gifts directly to the recipient using their delivery services.
Actually, I’ve known Taafoo for a while even before Konga and Jumia. Tafoo was one of the first online retail stores in Nigeria but they specialize strictly on fashion items.
An online store with a difference; buyright.biz specializes in selling heavy duty items like inverters,stabilizers, batteries and other related items. However the one I like the most is Jazzy Joy online store, because you can buy a supply of the trendiest, most innovative gifts, gadgets, sporting accessories
