In the past, about 10 years ago, Nigerians were probably just used to window shopping on the internet by visiting foreign websites where there were a lot of good stuff and products which people wanted but could not have due to the restrictions placed on shipping and credit cards. Yeah, in that past, not many Nigerians were used to buying things on the internet and getting a home delivery afterwards. Then, websites like Amazon and eBAY used to rule the local internet audience. Although few people were still able to shop online at US and UK stores from Nigeria, when you compare the cost of shopping for and shipping single items to Nigeria to their retail prices locally, it somehow defeats the whole purpose of saving costs on online shopping. Nowadays, there are lots of online shopping websites in Nigeria that can offer real low prices for items you may already be seeing listed on foreign websites. This is due to the fact that they can buy at wholesale prices from dealers abroad and ship at reduced shipping costs using sea freight rather than courier services which can be expensive.

The situation is changing now with the growth of online stores in Nigeria and there are a growing number of them. These are online shopping websites that allow people to pay in Naira, get a home delivery or do a pickup themselves.

Nowadays, Customers in Nigeria who want to shop online no longer need to make payments with Paypal, have a US shipping address or make use of a US credit card before their orders are executed. No, they could simply order online and even pay on delivery afterwards.

Online shopping in Nigeria is changing the way Nigerians buy and sell and it is not just products but services as well as being sold on the internet.

What I personally love about the growing number of online shopping websites

I've been doing a bit of browsing lately and got in touch with some of the top websites in Nigeria.

Here is a list of shopping websites in Nigeria
========================
1. Jumia Nigeria: This is practically like the industry leader when it comes to online shopping websites in Nigeria.

6.

11. HelloFood: With an office address at Lekki Lagos and a website at hellofood.com.ng, Hellofood is also a favourite online shopping destination. It's not just clothes and computers that are sold online in Nigeria but you can buy food as well. Whether it's for a local dish like ofe Akwu, Fufu or other dish like cakes, spaghetti and Pizza, Hellofood is one of those few local websites where you can order for food and receive it same day. Hellofood has a wide chain of restaurants that they can link you with and all it basically takes is having a free account with them and then pay on delivery. You'll be able to choose from the local restaurants in your area, order food and have it delivered to your while it's still hot. Hellofood doesn't really prepare the food themselves but I think they do the delivery and packaging and collect the fee. What I lie about them is the way they list various restaurants and their menu so you don't have to stick with just one.

Note: This list is not conclusive!

This may not be a complete list of all the online shopping websites in Nigeria but these are the ones I've take most notice of.

Re: List of online Shopping websites in Nigeria Reply by Dupe on Tuesday September 15, 2015 at 7:49:33:

Can I buy things from those websites by just calling them on the phone?



Re: List of online Shopping websites in Nigeria Reply by Felix Okoli on Tuesday September 15, 2015 at 7:53:1:

@Dupe, yes you can also do that. Most of them are real companies that also have official phone numbers listed on their contact page that allows you to place your order by phone. Just look for the specific item(s) you want from their website and call them by phone. You can choose to pay cash after they deliver to you but as soon as you collect the item(s). You need to be sure of the exact product name when placing an order on the phone so as not to make a mistake. For instance, if you want to buy a Wahl hair clipper, mention the exact model of the Wahl clipper and the listed price too if possible. If you want to buy an ipad or iphone, mention the exact model and memory size so as nto to have any problems with your order.

Dealdey don't operate pay on deleivery which is very bad. I ordered for a product on getting to the checkout section, the pay on deleivery wasn't active. So I gave them a call. And what they said was that they only operate pay on delivery to service product. May be home service. .
