Biko...
Do not, I repeat. Do not venture into importing mobile accessories with 300k unless you want to loose your money.
Now let me ask you. What knowledge do you have about the business?
Do you know the risk involved in it?
Do you know how much it cost to ship goods to Nigeria?
Which method do you want to use to send your goods down to Nigeria?
Have you compared the landing cost of the goods you intend to buy then comparing them with the price ssold in alaba international ?

As a wholesale in the business in alaba international , I will confidently tell you that if you intend to go into the business with 300k then put it at the back of your mind that you are only bringing in one particular product. You can't use 300k to bring in sonant items. Manufacturers won't take you serious and quantity of goods determine the price you get. Don't mind what you see in 1688. Meet with the manufacturer face to face and see the price difference. If you want to be successful in the business do like every other person. You have to learn it first then raise a good amount for capital to become an importer. Anyone telling you that you can do that is misleading you big time. Learn the business first before any other thing.

Sir, I understand your drift. But the issue is how do I learn the trade? And if I am to intern with anyone already in the business, is 2-3 months enough to know the rope of the business. You also mentioned meeting the manufacturers physically. I thought phone accessories are produced in China, how do I meet them physically in far away China, remember we are dealing with just N300k.

Also, I understand you are already in the business, are you open to tutoring someone sir?

You can learn the business anywhere you want to. So long as it is an accessories store. 3moths is enough to learn the business. Focus on atlst 3-4 items. It will be easier for you to grab

If you intend to go into the mobile accessories business 300k can take you a long way. Bear it in mind that the cost of shopnrent shouldn't be part of the 300k.get yourself a good location. A very busy road or most likey a school environment. Stock your shop with fast moving items.... People are prone to cheap products so go for more of the cheap then few quality items . Strategize while on how to draw attention to your business. As a retailer you don't really need to.know the business so much. Just know the items the buyer needs when he asks tell him your price, negotiate slightly. Get your profit after business has been done.

If you want to start buying first is you must come like once or twice yourself to meet with the people you would be buying from them too will be responsible for the waybill to any location in Nigeria. People from north’s buys from Alaba how much more you in Imo


I can give you contact if it’s accessories or batteries you want to buy but it’s good you go do survey yourself and be sure of whom you’re doing business with
