u can start ur online shop. such innovation is rare here. d secret of Biz is getting d right info. knowing how best to source ur goods and people to sell to. at times I come online here and see people saying they want to import this or that from abroad, I laugh. how can someone just go all d way to china and buy few goods at a higher rate and pay high transportation cost and then will be trying to sell for naija. do u know DT there is someone somewhere in naija who buys DT same item u bough in many containers . how do u thin his price will be same as yours. the truth there is DT there are items u can buy here even at china price in Nigeria. why is BC d importer who brought in enjoys Benefits DT follows bulk purchase.
it all depends on d info u have and ur capacity . for instance, I know a company that u can buy some phone accessories from like battery and memory cards here in naija at same price it will be sold to u in china. then u will still add ur shipping money from china to naija for ur item. so its beta for u to buy here.

I know some wealthy men who Neva import anything from abroad. they have huge money. but what they do is they wait for u d importer, once ur container lands he will say I will buy all ur containers or some at a little profit margin. he will carry d goods and sell in d same market as d importer. even some of them are richer than d direct importers BC they make more profit and they don't undertake any risks like custom seizing goods or water entering container, unstable exchange rate or shortage.


about trust and insecurity, its everywhere if u keep thinking of DT then u won't be able to do anything

Thank you very much for this eye-opening post.

starting a Biz in Onitsha is not easy. if u don't have big capital, don't think about it BC there re many moneybags here and u can't compete with them. many people who came to hustle here were struck out BC of the competition.d good thing is d competition makes prices to go down, my advise is buy goods at low price from Onitsha and go to other locations eg north or south south states were there is less competition and become a wealthy man there. there re goods u can even buy at clearance or auction prices and u take then to d north or other places and sell them at any price u wish. personally, I know a man who imports unique gowns from USA , sri Lanka ,Europe etc. these gowns he sell them at 6k and above. after some months he clears his warehouse and will sell same stuffs remaining at around 400 to 500naira. I have seen guys who left Onitsha to other places and today they re big boys. unless ur intended Biz is ICT related like software dev stuffs or service related which is not much in this town. but if its physical goods e go hard u

as per house rent, u can get a room in face me I face u apartment around odoakou for 4k. or u can share a flat with someone at around 6 to 7k

Spot on!

I just saw this thread and the Op gave a very good advice, but some people chose to ignore it.
Don't get a shop in Onitsha if you don't have at least 5-6 million left after getting the shop.
If you have anything less, the money bags there will frustrate you with silly prices and you'll end up depressed.
If you really want to make real money, buy your things in onitsha and sell in far away places like Benin, Portharcourt, Bayelsa and other states not close to Onitsha.
Onitsha is not for the weak.
You must be an astute business man before you can make it there.

Re: Why You Should Do Business In Onitsha by Emperordynasty: 9:11pm On Jun 05
antivirushop:
There are uncountable reasons why its cheaper and easier to do business or buy goods from Onitsha. I may not wirte all but will give the basic ones

1.Proximity
Onitsha is a commercial city with less land mass. You can move across the city within 30mins. The various markets in the city is not far from each other thereby offering you the convenience to do Biz in the city. For example ,moving from main market to building material market takes only 10mins and can cost N100 for transport.

2. Large Concentration of importers/Varieties
The markets in onitsha has importers in virtually all items. That is why it is easy to find and buy almost all the varieties of items u might need here. Also it makes the prices affordable. There are some items you can buy cheaper in onitsha than in lagos even though all cargos and shipments come almost through lagos ports. There are different markets for different items. Eg main market( for general goods- clothes,articles, phones,accessories), building material market, Shoe site market, Stockfish market, aluminium profiles markets, spare parts market etc.
U can get varieties of any type of goods u desire. remember what they said about variety being the spice of life

3. Affordable freight/ Transportation
This is one of the areas onitsha has a higher advantage over other commercial cities. Here in onitsha, u can get transport vehicles/lorries going to virtually all parts and states of Nigeria and even outside Nigeria like Cameroon, Ghana etc. Its not only availability but also its cheap and affordable. For example you can send goods or package from onitsha to Sokoto, Kano, Yola, etc at the cost of N1000. While sending goods from a location in lagos to another location in lagos costs same amount.Its so because there are many transport companies that transverse through Nigeria here in onitsha. For example, going from Onitsha to Sokoto which is a very far distance can take u only 10hours in a luxury bus. So u can come to onitsha from sokoto to buy goods and be back at sokoto the next day. Do u know u can go to lagos from Onitsha via a bus with N2000 if u dont hwve muchnmoney to board regular bus. Just go to asaba from onitsha and board a bus. And so with other locations throughout Nigeria

4. Good Infrastructure/Hospitality sector.
Thanks to the government of Peter Obi, onitsha has well inter connected roads. Also other amenities like schools, hospitals, hotels. You can get very good hotels at a cheaper rates. Even house rent in onitsha is generally cheap. You can get a 3bedroom flat for N240,000 The city is also well secured due to the empowerment of the various security agencies. Financial institutions like banks are scattered everywhere in the city. So getting money is easier.
This town does not encounter communal or sectorial crisis so there is peace.

5. Affordable goods
As I said earlier that Onitsha has a cluster of many importers. This makes it easy to buy goods at cheapest rate than elsewhere in Nigeria. Except foodstuffs that is generally brought down from north to east, virtually u can buy all other items at the most affordable rate here.

6. Cheap Rent
Generally its no news that rent in Onitsha is generally cheaper than most locations in Nigeria. You can get monthly shop rents ranging from N3000 - N30000 in big markets here. Even house rent comes cheap too compared to other locations. N180000 can get you a comfortable 2 or 3bedroom flats in the heart of the city. Such amount may get you only a self con apartment in lagos.
