Computing

Fast rising Nigerian online store, Konga.com, is giving Nigerian entrepreneurs and wholesale businesses the opportunity to own an online store which is accessible to the general public.

Konga on Tuesday announced plans to launch Konga Mall – an online storefront entrepreneurs can sign-up to and own on the Konga website – “in a few days.”

Businesses in Nigeria are moving into ecommerce to tap into the deepening internet penetration, middle class growth and increased consumer spending in the country. However, the cost of setting up online storefront is capital intensive.

Onyeka Akumah, Konga VP Marketing said: “The cost of setting up and managing an online store is enormous and several brands/ businesses are already struggling to play in a market that requires significant investment…

“Your brand/business simply focuses on providing inventory, while Konga.com focuses on the difficult stuff; unique store front creation, robust delivery framework, 360-degree warehousing logistics, nationwide coverage, secure payment gateway, insightful data & analytics and all the other factors that have so far limited Nigerian businesses from successfully coming online.”

Akumah added: “Our goal is to sell and deliver your products to over 49 million online Nigerians, increasing visibility and growing your profits. Konga.com wants to help your business succeed and keep you happy.”

Konga shopping company, launched in July 2012, is one of Nigeria’s largest online retailers. Konga.com gets over 400,000 visitors monthly.
