Laptops And Mobile Phones Import To Nigeria From Europe And USA – Good Biz? by jayman12: 7:32pm On May 31, 2013
Laptops and mobile phones import to Nigeria from Europe and USA – Good business idea or competitive and saturated
Dear All

I am looking to buy Laptops and mobile phones (both new and used) from Europe and the United States to send to Nigeria for sale (only once gotten a validated and confirmed sale) but I am unsure of the market so I need your help to answer the below questions:

i. What types of mobile phones and laptops sell fast and are in demand in Nigeria? (models and make)?
ii. Which sells fast brand new or used laptops and mobile phones?
iii. What is the market price which end user customer buys each type you may have mentioned in 1?
iv. What is the wholesale price which sellers buy from the distributors in order to sell to the end user customer?
v. How easy is it to find wholesale buyers (in Nigeria) for the products (laptops and mobile phones) and where (state, market location) are they most located?

In a nut shell I am looking to find out the potential of sales of Laptops and mobile phones in Nigeria given the competitions in the Nigerian market going on. Your responses will be appreciated.
Thank you.
Jay

Brother, It is a cool and good business. Technology market is thriving in Nigeria. 48 million+ Nigerians are on the internet,and I am sure 75% of the user access the internet via smartphones and other gadgets.
I am also into the business. I started in Nov.2012 though I started the biz to add to my income,but I am getting more than I expected. I mainly buy Blackberry fones and on request,I buy iPhones,Sammy GT +other gadgets for my customers.
Now to your questions:
1) Nigerians use BlackBerry a lot. I still believe it's one of the smartphones that is easily accessible to the low end users and students. Furthermore,used Blackberry moves faster in Nigeria. I stock more of used BB than new ones. The models depends on the preference of your customers and our familiar they are with diff.models of d fone,but when talking of BB,demand for Bold4,Bold5,Touch2 is very high. People prefer the recently launched Q10 to the Z10 cos the Z10 is completely Touchscreen(No keypads) while the other has Touchscreen+Keypad.
Some classy guys still vote for iPhones.
2) Used Blackberry sells fast. If you are good in fast dealings,customers will sometimes call on you for swapping or deal. (Though I don't subscribe to it for some reasons)
3)What works for one market may not work for the other. For instance The White bold5 could be gotten as low as 45k at Computer village,while you get it @ 50k to 55k in Abeokuta
4) I do not sell in wholesales,but if I get a deal,I can sell in wholesale.
5)Getting wholesale in Nigeria,that is where you need to work. Go to Technology market like comp.village in your area and do the findings. If your price is friend,especially lower to those they get theirs from,you may stand a chance. Also,if you could let them know the source of your product(The country it's coming from and the genuineness of the product)
On a last note,it is a cool business. If you could source for where to get good product that is lower than the competitive price,and you have the zeal to do biz witha lot of marketing strategy,you will be fine. You can make as high as 10k on a fone ( Depending on ur area,customer and ur marketing skills oooooo)
I wish u all d best.
ciao

Thanks for suggesting the idea of Ipads. I am based between UK and Lagos. Can you help specify the Ipads model versions types in demand.

@newacca

Thank you for the comprehensive response. Eventually It will be European(UK) and USA stock originals and genius products. Do you run a shop or do you stand as a broker (in between buyer and the seller). If you run a store, is your store in Lagos?

@Jayman12,
My store is in Abeokuta but my experience and intensive research makes me realize that the cheapest and most effective way to reach Nigerians and your potential customers is online,so I run offline and online store(FB and t w.i.t.t.e.r. Though I shuttle btwn Abeokuta&Lagos but I am more attached to Abk recently and looking forward to opening my permanent biz headoffice in Lagos in d nearest future.
