E-Commerce is a word that has dominated business conversations in the last decade – with most businesses incorporating some form of ecommerce in their processes. Ecommerce basically describes all activities undertaken to buy and sell products and services on the Internet; this therefore includes sales we see on social media, emails and websites.
E-Commerce may have become more well known recently, however it has existed for almost three decades with two main types of ecommerce: Business to business (B2B) and Business to consumer (B2C). In B2B, businesses conduct business with their suppliers, distributors and partners through electronic networks whilst B2C, the more well known of the two, focuses on offering products and services online directly to customers. Though B2C is the more used of the two, B2B generates the most revenue in the ecommerce space.
Today, we know that there are at least 2.14 billion digital buyers, which is 27.6% of the 7.74 billion people in the world. And by 2025, Statista projects there will be 291.2 million online buyers just in the United States.
We believe Africa is at the perfect stage where it can sell its cultural uniqueness throughout the world – which is where AfriShop Global comes in.
AfriShop Global’s goal is to connect African entrepreneurs to the global market by leveraging our online shopping platform to showcase hidden gems from all over Africa; our focus are buyers from the diaspora, especially in the USA, UK and Canada who are interested in African culture but are unable to access it easily.
From these two points, we have designed a well rounded online shopping platform that allows flexible shipping from Africa to any country at the buyer’s convenience. Unlike most online shopping platforms, our product catalog is unlimited, with buyers able to custom order products that may not be immediately available on the platform. This ensures there is no case of dissatisfaction and buyers can truly shop all things African on AfriShop.
The online shopping platform has products in various categories such as food, fashion, cosmetics, decor and many more all curated to reflect the spirit and culture of the African continent.
To connect with Africa right at your fingertips, AfriShop Global is your best bet – an online shopping platform with all of Africa’s best.
