Here is a comprehensive list of online shopping sites in Nigeria.
Online shopping is not just the easiest way to buy things right now, it’s one of the best way to check out various items and compare them before making your choice.
Shopping online in Nigeria has grown tremendously over the years and as a result a larger percentage of Nigerians now buy their desired electronic and fashion items online.
I have compiled a list of online shopping sites in Nigeria and hopefully, you’d find it resourceful.
Online Shopping Sites In Nigeria.
Jumia claims to be the number one online retailer store in Nigeria. They sell various types of items ranging from electronic device to fashion accessories and toys; just name it.
Being one of the most popular online store in Nigeria, they have established their brand as a household name in Nigeria, just like you have amazon and Ebay in the United States.
They are based in Lagos but delivery across the country; they also have pay on delivery option that allows buyers to pay only when their goods are being delivered.
Konga is currently the most popular ecommerce store in Nigeria. It’s said to have the highest funding for start up in Africa. It sells various items directly and through other merchant sites. Konga has it’s own payment and delivery system.
Konga is also based in Lagos but offer nationwide delivery.
Kaymu is a general ecommerce retail store. They sell various items and rely solely on merchant retail. They basically allow sellers to create a store and list their items, buyer can then make purchase and as such kaymu stands in between the buyers and sellers to ensure smooth transaction.
Slot Nigeria Limited is a very popular electronic retailer in Nigeria. They have both offline and offline store. They sell online electronic device; phones and laptops.
Slot limited sells most popular brand products like Samsung, HP, Tecno, Apple etc.
Microstation is very much similar to that of Jumia, they have both online and offline store and sells only electronic product.
Just like Konga, Jumia and Payporte, GidiMall offers pay on delivery service as well, so you don’t have to worry about losing your hard earned money online.
GidiMall offers a wide range of products from electronic appliances to fashion and other accessories. They offer both direct sales options and merchant sales.
Payporte is one of the fastest growing online shopping sites in Nigeria. They recently introduced their pay on delivery service just like Jumia and konga. They retail various types of items.
Payporte is headquartered in Abuja, but they process to all states of the country. They offer free delivery service to customers in Lagos and Abuja for most of their product, and their pay on delivery service is completely free.
Drinks.ng claims to be the largest alcohol and non-alcoholic wine delivery service in Nigeria. We’ve seen sites that are focused nly on technology products, or fashion product solely.
Drinks focus mainly on beverages delivery across the country. They offer a wide range of payment options and offer quick delivery service; especially within Lagos.
Mystore is a self-acclaimed number one online largest indigenous marketplace in Nigeria. They provide a platform where buyers and seller meet to complete their purchase transaction.
They provide a large market place for various categories of product.
Another online shopping site that focus solely on electronic product. Located in Lagos, but deliver across the 36 states of the country.
They sell branded electronic and mobile phone items.
Very similar to Smartbuy and other technology focused online shopping sites. They sell only electronic products. They offer pay on delivery service, they also offer free delivery service in Lagos as well as cash on delivery service for customers.
This is not a typical shopping sites compared to the ones I have listed above. It’s a listing website where sellers list items for sales and buyers with interest can make direct contact with buyer to complete their transaction.
Although there are numerous products listed on olx, however the main issue it the security of the transaction, because there has been report of fraud on the site.
This list of online shopping sites in Nigeria is not completed because there are other shopping sites but I have decided to list out the ones I have personal experience with to avoid recommending sites I don’t know much about.
When buying online, it’s important to put some security measure in place to avoid falling victim of online fraud.
If they site you’re about to make purchase on offers payment on delivery, I strongly advice that you take advantage of the pay on delivery option to avoid using your card on sites you don’t trust.
You can also Google search the site online to check past experience of users.
If you know of other popular online shopping sites in Nigeria with which you have personal experience, you can mention them in the comment box, and I’d be happy to add them to the post.
