Can I Open Stores On Jumia Or Konga As A Foreigner? by JeffGuo(m): 7:48am On Jul 18, 2014
I now opened stores on Amazon, Ebay, Aliexpress, but all these sophisticated online markets are full of competition, so i am very interested with jumia and konga, I want to open stores on both of the platforms. But I don't know as I am a Chinese lives in china, can I do that?

And as Nigerian, do you like to buy things on the two online markets? Which one you think is better? By swiping bank card or pay after delivered to door?

If my products is both good on price and quality, would you prefer to wait for the international package?

How do I avoid of online fraud...

Appreciate for your kind heart replies...

oh...that is unfortunate, hope they can be like either Amazon (Amazon owned stores and third part store) or ebay (absolute individual stores), this is the trend....

I think konga and jumia requires that you bring your products to their physical store.

Why not build your own online store that focuses on Nigerian customers, working on an aggressive search engine optimisation, SEO, that channels Nigerian traffic to your store.

If you can't do the above, you can use facebook's store (www.shopify.com). It cost $9 per month. Benefit of this is that facebook will advertise and drive much traffic to your store.

the problem is: is shopify.com a popular enough website? you know, brother, even jumia and konga are doubting by ppls, how shopify will be?

.

I will advice you build your own brand, your own online store, market it well and maintain a good reputation.

At first people did not trust konga.com and jumia.com, but now many people do.

Even alibaba.com and aliexpress.com was never trusted initially, but we now have many people patronising the sites.

Something like www.guo.ng will be a great idea.

It will cost you money to start-up, but the benefits will come in thousand folds later.

Paypal is in Nigeria now, and people can pay for products using paypal. So your payment system should be paypal. With that people will be more comfortable buying your products because they are sure that if you should cheat on them, they can get their money back.

Thank you for your advice, Agonbello, my excuse is setting brand is a long way to go, I even had researched wordpress, zencart etc website builder tools and brand registration, but my plan is firstly make my b2c sites have a good sales and accumulate enough private credits and reputations, then lead my customers to my owned sites, you know, the commission on Amazon and Ebay is not a small percentage. For business in nigeria the same thing, I want to firstly use Jumia and Konga and then.....

Yes you can sell on Konga. find out how on their site.
Re: Can I Open Stores On Jumia Or Konga As A Foreigner? by bakingsoda: 4:48pm On Jul 18, 2014
you could sell on the sites maybe through drop shipping. i would advice you contact the two stores with your exact questions above. you would also need to have a very fast courier service in place to enable you meet order deadlines in case you are able to sell on either or both stores.
