Ebeosi, an e-commerce marketplace that allows customers to shop for products from different parts of the world has been launched in Nigeria.
The Utah-based e-commerce platform will be allowing Nigerian consumers to decide which country to shop from, thereby getting full value for their money.
Joshua Izugbo, the CEO of Ebeosi, advised that Nigerians should take full advantage of what the company has to offer.
“We are committed to helping vendors in Nigeria become profitable by buying products at cheaper prices from Nigerian manufacturers and designers. We will also bridge the gap for those who want to buy from different countries across the world,” Izugbo said.
According to the company, Ebeosi is an online marketplace with a difference because is matches sellers with buyers, facilitating and carrying out business for corporate workers who want to have an additional stream of income.
“Nigerian vendors can also sell their products in the US, Europe, and other African countries. It’s time to reposition Nigerian businesses to benefit from the African Continental Free Trade Agreement as well as other programs of the US, and EU government like AGOA and Prosper Africa,” Izugbo said.
In his remarks, the CEO said he frowns at the fact that during his last visit to US in September 2019, he noticed that a lot of big chain stores were now stocking African prints style, casual wears, etc, “all made in China, when Africans are supposed to seize the great opportunity of this fashion trend to make real money and create jobs.”
He reckons that with Ebeosi, consumers can decide where the products they are buying are actually made, how it’s made and even down to the details of who made it. Ebeosi offers credit lines to qualifying businesses to enable them to stock up.
Headquartered in the US, at the heart of Silicon Slopes, Ebeosi promises to bring new experiences to both businesses and consumers in Nigeria, with quality and authentic product offerings.
For businesses wanting to register and benefit from Ebeosi’s B2B (Business to Business) package, an annual membership fee of N70,000 is charged. However, vendor registration to sell products on the marketplace is free.
The marketplace is open for seller’s registration only for now and will be open to the public on 1st of November, 2019.
