Nigerian entrepeneurs get online opportunity

10 April 2013, 11:56Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos - Based on its success as one of the biggest online retail stores in Nigeria, Konga.com is offering over 100 entrepreneurs in the country an opportunity to grow their businesses by running virtual storefronts on its website.

The company said it is ready to launch the storefront with around 100 merchants that have already signed-up at Konga Mall.

“There is a renaissance upon us; the dawn of online retail in Nigeria, and many brands/ businesses are scrambling to find their footing and get an online platform for their products.”

“The cost of setting up and managing an online store is enormous and several businesses are already struggling to play in a market that requires significant investments in order to fullfil processing requirements,” a representative of Konga.com said.

Businesses will simply focus on providing inventory, while Konga.com will focus on unique store front creation, robust delivery framework,  360-degree warehousing logistics, nationwide coverage, a secure payment gateway, insightful data and analytics and all the other factors that have so far limited Nigerian businesses from successfully doing business online.
