They operated just like circuit atlantic but their service is very low. Circuit atlantic charges you delivery to your house & insurance payment on ur goods.

2sexy: How about BB storm products because I see that they are quite cheaper.
Here is a strategy i used to know what people need, you can start with word of mouth or place an advert for BB storm & others. When people call you just tell them you have run out of stock but expecting ur goods soonest and ask for what types of BB they need. If 10 call you, you can sample their opinions on that & see which one is moving fast. Like i said earlier, many prefer bold 2 over 4 cos they belive there is little or no difference btw dem but they are ready to pay any price for bold 5.
Or go through some BB sellers on nairaland (phones & tech) and check what people are demanding for.

This is bold 1 & meant for first time users. Don‘t go for it except ur customer requests for it. Bold 2 is 9700 & 5 is 9900. You can also check tour, heard is very scarce here. You can buy coloured ones cos nigerians are mad with fashion, u know stepping out with nice wear & purple BB to fit. BB Accessories are also selling fast.
If you are buying on ebay, check how many of the phones they have in stock cos it shows if the phone is owned by individual or retailer. I like to buy from retailer that has large stock than from individual cos retailer would have worked on it & issued his/her warranty.

Okay thanks. As for the BB accessories, I will definitely look into that.

Yes BB tour, I saw that one and also cheap but a friend discouraged me saying it tour. May be he said so because it is not popular here and I think there is nothing bad to introduce it into the market.

Talking about the number of stock they have, if I buy from a retailer, I should get it cheaper right?

How does one avoid the issues of scam or fraud on ebay?


Thank you for your time.

Some goods are tagged contraband in Nigeria by the FG such as wears... Any negative dealings or experience from anyone importing them?

Thank you for your time.
you are not the making payment direct but using a third party such as circuit atlantic or uk2naija, just make naira payment to them and fold your arms while the products are delivered to you.

You can take any bus going towards Ikeja along (probably iyana ipaja bus)..drop at airport bus stop ( the bus stop before Ikeja)..cross to the other side and walk up the bridge..you will see some blue buses or cabs..most of them go to MM airport..its simple to get.

I must appreciate your effort on this thread. You have really positively expanded the scope of this thread more than what I thought and I must say u shud keep it up..we need more pple like you.

Chrisvicmall:



[b]The service fee is $10 is the total price of the product you are purchasing is below $1000. The shipping fee is $13 per kg if you want to pay the shipping fee before we send the product. Please note that the shipping fee is only from China to Lagos airport. We do not deliver directly to your address. You have to pick the product at the airport once the product reach Nigeria. We will give you the number of the agent once your product reach Nigeria.

If my previous explanation wasn't clear or I have ommitted somethings, I do apologize. If you any question, you can ask us here or you can visit our website and chat with us directly. [/b]
Concerning Chrisvicmall service charge @Chemashie, stop confusing us. Thanks.
Re: Do It Yourself Importation Guide Free by unclenna(m): 10:14am On Dec 15, 2012
chemashie:
Service charge is 10% of your purchase & shipping is $13/kg or so.
This your comment contradicts what the guy said.

1.You can use her own provided she gives the consent and she gives u her details.
2.I don't think first bank can work. I only know of UBA and GTB
3. If u mean from aliexpress, then Yes but why do that when u can make the order yourself and get it here. But if you are talking about other western sites like Amazon that don't ship to Nigeria, then maybe the person from USA can get it for u.

We have discussed everything about reducing the shipping cost on this thread so u can go back and check the previous pages.

I have not ordered for a laptop before on aliexpress. However, u shud go tru the feedback of any seller to know what buyers say about it. Make sure the seller has sold a good number so u av the advantage of seeinf the feedback of many buyers. Also, u can ask chrisvicmall if they can recommend any good one for u since they are in China
