Konga creates platform where everyone can sell anything online

Today marks a turning point for Nigerian businesses-roadside, small, medium and large, as Konga.com Nigeria’s largest online mall announces the opening up of its trading platform for all Nigerians to sell online. 

Konga which only last year announced the launch of Konga Mall, a revolutionary offering which gave select Nigerian businesses the opportunity to put their products online is finally opening up this opportunity for all classes of businesses in Nigeria. Continue...

To be a part of this revolution and receive valuable information, everyone can simply visit http://konga.com/sell to pre-register. Regular information on how to maximise the opportunity, processing and validation will be done on the Konga platform in the weeks leading up to the big launch.


This new offering which will be launching in the coming weeks will cater to the needs of not only big wholesalers/ retailers, but even the road side/ market traders in Surulere, Alaba, Aba, Onitsha, Kaduna, as well as enterprising individuals across the country with amazing products but no hope of expansion or scaling.


This marketplace will revolutionise the way buyers and sellers interact, with a model that is more convenient for the seller and more attractive to the buyer. It will create unlimited opportunity for the Nigerian entrepreneur, small business owner or even large business owner; it will serve as the great equaliser/nation builder, boosting employment, trade and powering economic growth and development in Nigeria.


Konga has already changed the rules of participating in e-commerce in Nigeria through several novel offerings to customers, major investments in infrastructure and widespread education on the merits and convenience of online retail. Now Konga is building a marketplace that will exponentially drive the adoption of e-commerce in the country through unrestricted yet structured participation, as well as novel platform security measures and guarantees that ensure buyer and seller are protected and rewarded for participating.


Maxitech, a computer and electronics dealer based in Lagos who has benefited from the earlier launched Konga Mall had this to say;


I have been selling computers for a number of years now in Lagos and to customers in neighboring cities, but i must admit that what Konga.com has been able to do for my business is increase my sales portfolio not only locally but nationwide E-commerce in Nigeria is definitely the future and i am happy that Konga is not only growing at a tremendous pace but is also helping Nigerian Businesses grow as well”


Sim Shagaya, CEO of Konga.com had this to say about the new platform;


“About a year ago, we realised that for our services to be really valuable to society, we had to build a platform for anyone, not just Konga, to sell and prosper. We launched this platform to a limited number of sellers and in that time, we have learned how to build a truly revolutionary Nigerian online marketplace.


Today we are pleased to invite all Nigerian businesses - great or small, designer or farmer, producer or trader, sole proprietorship or limited liability,  - to sign up to this new platform - Konga Marketplace.


We will be opening up in the next few weeks and we think you will be pleasantly surprised by what we have built”

The internet is changing retail around the world, and the winners will be those that embrace the internet revolution.  Konga.com will provide the tools, awareness and security for entrepreneurs and businesses across Nigeria who want to benefit from the immense benefits of expanding their businesses online.

It doesn't make sense being everywhere yet being nowhere.
I've tried several times to make purchases on Konga and all attempts failed with flimsy excuses (ordering an item, few days later you'll be told it's cancelled due to unavailability yet it still shows available on their website and continues so). Now, they're claiming Naija e-bay. Caveat emptor!
