No supprises

The recession has affected people's purchasing power,

Secondly, there is the rise of Instagram, Facebook and whatsapp vendors.

3rd there are some goods that I prefer to buy from Amazon US because it's cheaper than what I see on Konga

Yeouch! But there's good news here:

1. they can afford to pay staff 5 months salaries, so they're not hurting for cash
2. they moved to prepay, which means they've achieved a major milestone.

The prepay model is what they needed to do anyway, but had to do pay on delivery to earn trust and make Nigerians aware of them. Switching means they've accomplished a major hurdle in winning mind share

There's a revenue drop now, as they switch models, and will need to shed weight to survive in 2018 as the marketplace adjusts, but I foresee business picking up by 2019 (helped by 2018 holiday shopping), following a marketing campaign in 2018.
