10 Websites to Start Online Importation & Online Shopping Business

If you are thinking of starting online importation business here in Nigeria, there are many things you have to think about and make decision on, but no matter what decision you make, you still need some trusted website(s) to do your online importation business. Highlighted in this blog post is a list of the top ten websites to do your online importation business.
 
  •  eBay - eBay.com is the best online shopping website I will ever recommend for anyone, just because of the fact that there are millions of quality goods and products from top-rated sellers to choose from. You can also get almost anything you could ever think of buying at a very reduced and affordable price through auction (bidding) where the highest bidder goes away with the goods. Also, eBay uses buyers protection to make their marketplace a very safe & secured one.
  •  AmazonAmazon is also very similar to eBay, being the largest online shopping website, they have different type of products with reduced price ranging from refurbished and used to new Electronics, Apparel, Computers etc.. Amazon features numerous services including one-click buying, extensive customer and editorial product reviews, gift registries, gift certificates, wish lists and photo processing. 
  • New EggYou can buy many things on New Egg but they put more attention on the Technology part of life unlike other websites in this list e.g Laptops, Computer parts, Accessories and so on.
  • AliExpress Aliexpress is also a good place to buy cheap Electronics, Appliances, Fashion Stuffs etc. But note that Aliexpress is located in China thereby most (not all) of their products are Chinese products. Aliexpress currently offer more than 11 million unique consumer products across more than 4,000 categories, ranging from apparel and accessories to consumer electronics to jewelry and more.
  • Ever Buying This is another stop spot to shop for Mobile Phones, Cheap Laptops & Tablets but the site is mainly filled up with Chinese products just like Aliexpress.
  • DH Gate DHGate is a Chinese Wholesale Marketplace for Small and Medium Buyers interested in purchasing Directly from China Manufacturers with Extensive catalog, free drop shipping, wholesale discount, express door-to-door shipping, escrow service.
  • IP mart IPmart is an Online shop specializing in GSM unlocking device, china phones and some other china gadget and accessories.
  • Dino Direct - DinoDirect.com is an Online Store With so many products you need to buy which also includes Free Shipping depending on the type of product.
  • Cellular Country – This website only sell Used, Refurbished and New Phones. You can even get a neatly used BlackBerry as low as NGN5000 on Cellular Country, just check the sites for more details.
  • Made In China – The name already justifies what you are going to see, They provide online marketing platform for both Chinese enterprises and global buyers.
Note that the sites listed above are just recommendation by me not an official list, you can check the websites out to see how they look like and what they have to offer you. Also watch out for my future post with full details on How to start Online Importation Business in Nigeria with low capital and How to make a lot of Money from it.

    1. Paypal is not the only option to pay on CellularCountry, You can also pay with Debit / Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard). So, if you have maybe GTB Naira Mastercard or any form of Credit Card, it will work for you and you'll be able to pay and get your stuffs. But about the Paypal issue, there is a way to get a Paypal account and use it in Nigeria.

  2. I cant change my product destination from usa to nigeria on aliexpress. What can i do, because i need to search for free shipping product to nigeria. Tanks

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can search for free shipping products but it will be via China Mail which could take up to a month or even more before you receive it here in Nigeria. Apart from that, the only way you can get free shipping via DHL is if you are buying something many from a seller and you both agree that he will be shipping it to you via DHL because you're buying many.. About the product destination, not all products can be shipped to all countries, it depends on the seller's option, i guess that's why you cant change the product destination to Nigeria. You can try that same product from different seller maybe you'll be able to change its destination to Nigeria. Hope this helps ?

  9. do dx.com offer free shipping to nigeria

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It depends on each seller and the courier the seller is using... You can expect China Mail to be free (like 15-40 days) but don't expect DHL (like 3-5 days) to be free. Except if you buy so many things from a seller and the seller wants to appreciate your purchases with that.
