MySay:
Thanks a million for this great thread. I have always wanted to go in this business.
my question is this,
1. How did you get the jumia packaging bag? was is waybilled to you? or did you get it from their office?

2. What method did you used to send the chargers you sold on jumia to your buyers?


3. How can someone outside lagos go into this business without need to travelled to lagos? is there any alternative method to source for the products still at a cheaper price?

1) Before now, you can readily buy Jumia packaging materials at any warehousing center near you, but I heard that method has been suspended, one need to order for this packaging materials online now. Picture attached

2)
Sign up on Jumia seller center, and list out the products you want to sell, you will get notification once an order is placed, all you need to do is to package the product and send to the nearest Jumia warehousing center within 24 hours.
You can also request for jumia to come pick your package up at your doorstep for extra cost tho

3)It depends on the scale you want to start with, if it's retailing, then I will advice you to get from sub wholesalers in your state, am very sure there are, just make your research, or betterstill import it yourself

Stay tuned as my next update will be Importing and import portals

Having gone through what etihad stated here on his post about genuinety of Alaba international sellers against ikeja sellers i beg to disagree with that assumption. Alaba intetnational as a hu. The largest market in the whole of west africa where products ranging from phone accessories to electronics can never be seconded to ikeja. What ever accessories (what ever accessories) you see where ever it may be was first gotten from Alaba market.
He said sellers in ikeja use express cargo to get some of there goods down to Nigeria. That may be true but to an extent. We in alaba international have a way we import our products there by never having to lack goods before another shipment comes in. We are able to predict ahead of the market trend. We also use express services to get our goods down here to Nigeria depending on how important it is needed.
Now talking about fake and original product. Everyone has a choice of what he wants to purchase. Majority of the so called names aforementioned here are the big guns in the business but that doesnt mean they dont have inferior products. New age fedan investment cee charls as the list goes. What can i say about new age. He has the best powerbanks but the quality of his chargers are same as the quality manufactured by chinese companies for every other importer. Prices differs but that doesnt mean that the lesser the price the lesser the quality. It only means that some importers have good connections or rapport with manufacturers for them to produce goods at a cheaper rate for them so that the importers can make enough profit. That is how the business is. People will always assume what they dont know when they are not in the system. Just because you heard doesnt mean it works that way. Before you can say such about Alaba sellers you have to be in the system.
Nkw you said you bought an infinix charger at 450 and sold at 1500. But there are still expensive one at the price of 900-1000. You would have gone for the expensive ones but just because you wanted to make profit you went for the cheaper ones. You just contradicted yourself by making that statement.
Alaba as a whole has majority of the importers that sell original products but the problem is who is ready to buy an expensive product, if the retailer buys at an expensive rate how sure will he be to resell it to the end user. That is the reason why there are cheaper ones produces for those who cant afford the original. Same goes to every othet product in phone accessories.

This is my business and i have stayed in the market long enought to know the secrets of importers. So when people assume they know it all i tend to keep them at the little they know.

Many people say that only money can create money. However, for E-commerce business, that is not necessarily true. Money doesn’t make a business, a person does.

Talent, passion and relentless effort is what makes a business and all this comes only from a human.

I started my first business with a little below that few years ago

Stay with the thread, and I ensure before the end of this tutorial, you will be both empowered(with information smiley) and motivated to set up your first store


We continue tomorrow

Importation and import portals

I will be sub dividing this into two categories (1) Importation for the wholesalers (2) Importation for the retailer's

Importation for the wholesalers can be addressed in three major parts: sourcing, production, and shipment.

Sourcing: sourcing means to find the ideal suppliers to manufacture the products that you are trying to import from China. There are some well established platform like Alibaba or Global sources. However, it’s hard to verify the credentials of the suppliers on these platforms due to lots of fraud and scams nowadays. A good alternative is to seek the help from an experienced China sourcing agent that has the expertise in the industry.

Production: There are basically two types of production. The first one is manufacturing some standardized merchandise. Usually the factory has already built a mold and they will make it ready for you whenever you place an order. The second one is called OEM serivce or private labeling. During this process, the manufacturer will print your own logo on each of the product. Usually you need to meet the minimum order quantity(MOQ) required by them.

Shipment: There are three main methods when it comes to shipping from China: Express Mail, Air Freight, and Ocean Freight. Depends on your deliver date and budget you need to choose the one suits to your project most. It’s highly recommended to work with a China freight forwarder, because you will get a much better deal with them compared going to straight to the company who actually owns the ship or airplane

Up next will be Importation for retailers.... Stay with this course smiley
Re: Total Exposition.... Let Me Teach You Everythin About Phone Accessories business by Etihadstore: 10:17am On Feb 23, 2018
Following this thread you might notice that I seem more consigned with the success of the retailers,Tbh I am because as a starter in this business, I had no one to put me through, I paid for almost all am teaching here, but today it's a win win for me and so many others that knows.
There is lots of money to be made in this business and it's tailored strategically to be practiced practically by anyone, starting from that student in his hostel, to that unemployed graduate setting up an online store, in little or no time getting a kiosk or store to start selling offline or better still combine the two.
Recently I had a friend that quit her 9-5 job to embrace this business.
When I say their is profit, upto 100% ROI in this business believe me.

Now see and judge for yourself.
The first picture is the price of 3d glass from aliexpress and the second is how much the same product is sold online by Jumia sellers

Still to come Import and import portals targeted at online/offline retailers

Let's continue
One do argue that the easiest way to import from China would be to find a supplier through Alibaba; it’s the world’s largest B2B marketplace, the interface is easy to use and you’ll easily be able to find what you’re looking for.

That being said, buying off of Alibaba can be fraught with difficulty if you don’t go in prepared; quality issues, scams etc. Luckily, these all of this can be easily avoided

Once you’ve found a product and supplier, the easiest route to go down would be a courier service. This means that delivery will be the exact same method that you’re used to getting your goods in.

Depending on what you want to do with your goods, you could make the process even easier by delivering them straight to your online store warehouse or their office here in nigeria; that way you wouldn’t even have to touch them!

However if you are conversant with nairaland business section, am sure you do have encountered numerous of mini Importation thread. The methodology of importing every other product Same goes to phone accessories business.

Top 10 website to import from
Aliexpress.com
Alibaba.com
Amazon.com
Ebay.com
China invasion.com
1688.com
Madeinchina.com
Ipmart.com
Everbuying.com

But I narrowed the list to the best five
Www.alibaba.com
Www.aliexpress.com
Www.amazon.com
Www.ebay.com
Www.1688.com... Which for me top the list, because in the long run, they have shown to be outstanding especially when it comes to ridiculously cheap products.

The only downside to 1688 is that it default language is in Chinese, but you can easily navigate it by downloading chrome browser which will automatically help you translate to English language.

All you have to do now is to right click and then click on “Translate to English”. The whole page will be translated to English.
You can search for the items that you want to procure and select the best available ones.
As a nigeria it's not always easy to purchase directly from this site, you will be need an agent in China that can help you do the purchase, Nb we have loads of them here on nairaland, and you can also search Y modules thread for list of agents.

All you need to do now is to copy the link as shown above and send to your agent in china to source for the product for you and tell him or her to also help you get a cheaper price from the manufacturer.
copy the link and send it to them on whatsApp tell them to source the product for you with the cheapest price if possible.
They will reply you back give you quotation and ask you to pay in dollar using PayPal or you pay in naira through their agent in Nigeria.

Ask your supplier to write your name and number on your goods to avoid the issue of missing goods.

Attached picture is from 1688 and Jumia respectively
Nb : in 1688 you pay with yuans which is equivalent to 56naira.

"Businesses are about creating value for customers. If you can't do that, than don't. There's no shame in working for someone else.

Working with a start up will teach you valuable lessons a out what to expect in a start up, the considerations of a founder and how to raise capital.

The best ideas come from experience. From witnessing inefficiencies.

Get out there into to work and get working. When an idea or assumption strikes, test it. If people bite, keep exploring until the idea just won't settle: then set up your business"

Wealthy people “First Learn, then they remove the L”

They learn what they have to learn, they eat up knowledge they focus on increasing the knowledge they have and increasing it, they are not satisfied with basic answers and strive for excellence in knowledge because the best investment is investment in yourself and they invest in themselves and reap the rewards. You can’t expect to take risks, start a business or chase excellence if you have no idea how to do any of it, so first you need to learn what you need to learn
