Average Nigerians don't know the full potential of eCommerce or even the basic of eCommerce business in Nigeria. The usual mental picture is that any business that looks like Jumia and Konga is a typical e-commerce business.
You'll be surprised as dudes are making over a million naira monthly income with just a single page simple e-commerce website in Nigeria. You don't necessarily have to have tons of products like Jumia. Simply selling your service is an e-commerce business.
As a matter of fact, you don't need to have a product to sell or services to render before you start up your eCom business... simply connecting the two together could just be the necessary cue you need to get started.
Here's a typical way to start the modern e-commerce business in Nigeria from scratch!
