Do you mean GTBank ATM card or is it a different card and does it require going with national identity card like in UBA AfriCard?

jidebobo: Please help me out. I wanted do some shopping from Uk i.e (wear both for children & adult) and I have brother there which I wanted to send some money to help me especially for Xmas period. How would i clear/get the goods

If you have a brother there, then he truly can help you out. Just tell him to find a good shipping company that can send them down to you. DHL is one of them but there are others he can use if DHL is too expensive. It shouldnt be too hard for him to find one.

If you choose the DHL option while ordering for the products then you will pay the shipping fee together with the payment of the product you are ordering for online at the point of ordering for it so you will not need to pay again when the order gets to you. Remember that it is the address you used to open your account on the website that the stuffs will be sent to. You will get it at the address and no other charge will be required.
The shipping fee will already be on the sales page. Just make sure you put your location as Nigeria, it will automatically generate the shipping fee to your country.

DTalented: Do you mean GTBank ATM card or is it a different card and does it require going with national identity card like in UBA AfriCard?

It is the normal GTB ATM card you get when you open your account so u dont need to apply specially for it provided it has the GTB naira mastercard written on it.

lotex: Will dhl charge me for collection of the goods here in Nigeria n' watz d collection price?....e.g....one laptop

When you want to order for a particular product, make sure your location is correctly set as Nigeria. The shipping fee to your location will be automatically generated. When making payment for the product online, you will have to pay for the shipping fee and the payment of the product itself. So if you choose the DHL option for example, you will have to pay for the shipping cost online as you also pay for the product. Therefore, you will not be required to pay any fee again when your goods get to you. Just make sure you use the address you want where you want to receive the goods when signing up on the site cos thats where your goods will be sent.

DTalented: Do you mean GTBank ATM card or is it a different card and does it require going with national identity card like in UBA AfriCard?

Its the same ATM card you get when you open an account with GTB provided the GTB naira mastercard is written on it so u don't need to specially apply for it.

jidebobo: Please help me out. I wanted do some shopping from Uk i.e (wear both for children & adult) and I have brother there which I wanted to send some money to help me especially for Xmas period. How would i clear/get the goods

Of course your brother can help you. He can for example send it through DHL and you will receive it at your address. However, if DHL is too expensive, he can easily help you find some cheaper shipping service over there. Just make sure you get the tracking code so you can monitor the goods before they arrive.

I dont know what exactly you want to purchase so its difficult for me to identify a supplier for you. However, if you carefully follow the steps I talked about early on, it is most unlikelyfor you to fall into the wrong hands.
Re: Do It Yourself Importation Guide Free by ElMat1: 11:50am On Nov 30, 2012
Its still the same El Matteo. They have made it impossible for me to update this thread as I told some in my email replies. I have been trying to update this thread over and over again but my posts keep getting hidden and I do not understand why. I have contacted the mods but haven't got a response till now. That is why I created another handle and I hope they don't start hiding this one again cos I obviously did not break any rule through out this thread. I have sent messages to the moderators since last nite but till now nothing has been done.

Are u sure u created an account on the site before u tried to place an order. If so, maybe u shud try using another computer.

Of course, if you use DHL, the product will get to your doorstep depending on the address you use. It will be delivered to your address.
Re: Do It Yourself Importation Guide Free by ElMatteo(m): 5:38pm On Nov 30, 2012
About the Shipping

You will notice that the shipping fee sometimes is quite high and sometimes may even cost more than what you are ordering. Don't be discouraged about this cos there is a way out.

Firstly, u can always get free shipping to Nigeria but most of them are through China Post which may take 15 to 60 days before it gets here but if u don't mind the wait you can go ahead.
You can however get some free shipping with DHL. You can find this by going to the category of the products you want and at the top of the page, select the free shipping option and also select DHL as the shipping method. Also, remember to set your location as Nigeria. This will bring out a list of the product you can get through free DHL shipping. They may not be much but check them out but never forget to go through the usual steps I talked about early on tru which u can find a genuine seller.

Most times, the products you want will not offer free shipping. Never to worry, there is a method I use. Most of u may have heard of chrisvicmall. I'm not in anyway affiliated to them but they are the people I use for my shipping. They offer low rates compared to what u have on the sales page and the fee is based on the weight of the product. They have the 1 to 3 day option and also the 7 to 10 day option. The faster you want it, the more you pay.
You will give them the link and they will help u place the order then send the goods down to u. Their customer care is great and they will continually update you.
However, I must say there is a level of trust needed cos u will have to pay to them and not directly to aliexpress cos they will be making the order on your behalf. When I heard about them, I did my research and decided to take the risk and it paid off. I avent had any problem with them ever since. You can go over to their site at chrisvicmall.com and chat with them, they will explain everything to you.
They have an office here in Alaba so u can visit them to be sure. You can also start with sth small so u can be confident of their service. To learn more, visit their website and click on the livechat icon.

I mentioned a reliable site earlier on. It is ipmart.com. You can get good uk refurbished blackberry phone in good condition and they are very cheap. You can get some blackberries as cheap as 10k there which u can sell and make good profit.

DTalented: Ok. The problem now is CAPITAL!!.

Any way out ?

I believe you can try to raise sth small. You can start with sth as small as 10k provided you have done your market analysis well. Just try importing sth that is very cheap and will readily sell e.g. Jewellries. You can then gradually build your capital and start importing some other stuffs. Just be focused and set your goals.
