COOL BUSINESS IDEAS -:- How Nigerian merchants can now make money with Konga marketplace
With Konga’s online selling platform, Nigerian merchants or sellers can now make money online from their real business and they don’t have to pay any money forward. The only fee they have to pay is a small commission on sales made on Konga. I think it’s a good opportunity Nigerian sellers should take advantage of because they are actually losing nothing from this platform but rather opening their products to a much wider audience across Nigeria.
When you consider the costs of running a physical store in Nigeria, it would include bills such as rent, salaries, power bills, local govt tax etc. With Konga’s selling platform, you’d avoid having to pay a lot of those bills and you’d even be able to reach a lot of people outside your state.
One of the ways I normally mention when writing articles on how Nigerians can make money online is “Selling online”. What I mean is that even Small businesses and retailers in Nigeria can also make money by selling their physical products on the internet.
Whether or not you have a physical store or location but have items to sell either in a warehouse or shop, you can simply sell them online through Konga.com.
For those who don’t already know it, Konga is one of the largest online shopping websites in Nigeria and you can also buy things from them too. Konga sells a lot of things online such as clothes, shoes, electronics, books, tools and so on. It only makes sense to partner with such a big giant because it would only help you sell more.
What I personally love about Konga as a shopping destination is their good customer service and so Nigerians customers are getting warmed up by this and it would only encourage them to do more of their shopping on the website.
Given the track record Konga has had for a number of years now, it appears that the only place they are heading to is the top and it would probably be a business mistake if you didn’t at least list your products with them as a merchant/seller. You’r not losing anything by selling with Konga because you can still sell in your shop or warehouse if you want but listing it on Konga would give you a much better audience because they deliver across the length and breadth of Nigeria.
How selling on Konga really works is that first of all a person would have to register for a seller’s account, verify his email land phone and then afterwards upload pictures and images of what he is selling and the prices too. Once that has done, the person would have to drop off some of those items to a Konga office close to them and then let Konga do the selling. Once items have been sold and confirmed, the account of the seller would be credited
With Konga’s selling platform, it is easy to sell just as it’s easy to read this blog post I wrote on it. If you can use the internet, open a Yahoo account, upload pictures and type on your computer, then you can sell on Konga.
With Kong’as selling platform, you don’t necessarily need to have a physical store to be a merchant because you can sell on your customized online store at konga.com. If you run a store at a physical location, you can still easily add an online store at Konga and this would help you to sell more.
