E-Commerce Opportunities in Africa

E-Commerce Opportunities in Africa

Boasting one of the most digitally connected populations in the world (and 400 million internet users, second only to China), Africa is fast becoming the epicentre of e-commerce opportunities. In fact, unknown to many, Kenya and Uganda were the first countries to introduce mobile payments back in 2000.  


With over 50 nations and a population of 1.3 billion people, for Africa, e-commerce is an opportunity that will grow to $75b by 2025. A unique opportunity for companies large and small. 


  1. Growing E-wallets 

Greater participation in the financial sector is an essential prerequisite for the growth of e-commerce. Africa is experiencing exceptional growth in mobile connections and mobile money providers. In 2020, there were 280 million e-wallet users. This number exceeds the global average and counts for the highest proportion of adults with a mobile money account of any region.  


  1. Opportunity 

The rise in mobile telephones and increased participation in the financial system are accompanied by rapid growth in the use of the internet for purchases or payments. Africa is ready for action, and DUBUY.com is a single solution to realize the opportunity of Africa’s economic growth. With our e-commerce platform, we prove Africa’s ability to open opportunities and overcome obstacles across the region. 


  1. Logistics 

One of the biggest challenges that businesses face in Africa is the world of logistics. Getting your goods shipped fast and efficiently should be a given when trading online, but the address system (or lack thereof) in many African cities can cause more confusion and frustration than not. We understood these challenges however and built a logistics strategy that takes the pain out of shipping. By providing an end-to-end solution for all buyers and sellers, we’re able to ensure that goods are shipped and received in a safe, reliable, and timely manner.   


  1. How can you profit? 

We’ve made it easy to grow your business domestically and internationally. An online business platform that allows buyers and sellers to trade beyond their current limits, making companies and economies flow faster and more freely. We help buyers source products and sellers to find customers.  


  1. Why DUBUY? 

African businesses and consumers are frustrated by high costs and the lack of both choice and certainty when shipping goods into, out of, and within these markets. DUBUY is different from other e-commerce platforms because it partners with local businesses and governments to champion and grow the local economy. We’re making it easier for any business to grow faster by never missing a sale and making sure that the right product is in the right place at the right time.
