In order to consolidate the growth of the Nigerian e-commerce business environment, Ninbiz, an online e-commerce platform has launched its services into the Nigerian market to offer ideal online market where customers’ need are met on every level.
Ninbiz which is designed to redefine e-commerce business in the country is a fusion of social network and the traditional e-commerce and its services go beyond buying products online because of the interactive nature of the platform.
Speaking at the unveiling in Lagos, Chief Executive Officer of Ninbiz e-commerce, Oboye Olutoni Olutobi said the platform provides an avenue where buyers and sellers can actively interact, negotiate, get personal discounts and have better product delivery rate.
According to him, ’’The Ninbiz idea came about the need to create ideal e-commerce environment that will actually make business grow, and not just help Nigerians sell their products online, but to completely redefine what is previously known about e-commerce which is a fusion of social networking and traditional e-commerce.’’
He said, ‘’Buyers and sellers don’t have to be big before they are seen on the platform, it is designed in such a way that buyers and sellers will always come up on the top search results when customers around your store location are searching for their products and services.
‘’The registration to Ninbiz is completely free, what this means is that you can create your store on the platform, sell, make profit and get your business to grow and get to know without having to pay.
‘’A business on Ninbiz can create poll, send notification to customers, have a discussion forum to relate with customers, advertise events, send invites and its business page is seamlessly integrated with other social networking sites,” he added.
