Shoptomydoor enters Africa’s keenly contested e-commerce market
In countries like Nigeria, the e-commerce sector is increasingly becoming overcrowded. With over $10 billion worth of opportunity to be exploited as of last year, the number of online retail platforms is rapidly edging closer to the hundred mark. Shoptomydoor is one of the few aiming to secure a suitable position in the keenly contested online shopping market by expanding operations to over 40 African countries.
Africans have always seen quality electronics, fashion, baby items, household needs, laptops on great online stores like Ebay, Amazon, Zappos and other online stores in the United States of America (USA) with amazing prices and discounts. However purchasing has never been easy as the biggest challenge always faced is shipping at very exorbitant cost with uncertainty of delivery. In most cases, you either pay way above the budgeted cost for shipping that it is no longer worth it or in a worst case scenario, get to receive your purchases after much delay. Many a time these goods end up delivered in damaged conditions without any form of compensation.
With free shipping from USA to your doorstep within 3 business days, customers can finally actualize your shopping dreams. According to Nduka Udeh, CEO/MD of Shoptomydoor.com, “there are 2 major ways our ecommerce platform saves you thousands of dollars shopping online,” he said. “First, is that we give you access to thousands of online stores across USA that you can shop direct using your Visa, MasterCard or PayPal without paying any processing fee.
He also explained that Shoptomydoor provides customers with a unique warehouse address that allows you shop just like a resident and have your items from one or multiple online stores consolidated into one shipment to further reduce your shipping cost. This way customers are able to save over 80% compared to what other major shippers would charge for such services.
