Buywela.com seeks to be Nigeria’s “Google for e-commerce” – Indexing Online Stores for Easy Shopping Experience
Nigeria is on the fast track to becoming one of the great economies in the world, given it’s already the leading economy in Africa. The country is now faced with numerous and competitive online stores all trying to outdo each other in the quest to cash-in on the growing middle-class and upper-class economy.
All these competition has left the consumer literally being spoiled for choices on which online stores to shop from. The bottom line being that the consumer ends up spending, or rather wasting a lot of time browsing through the plethora of online stores trying to compare the best prices, deals, promotions and products.
A new site dubbed Buywela.com has come with an innovative solution that will spare online shoppers the agony of browsing through numerous e-Commerce websites and wasting their valuable time. Buywela.com works more or less like Google; it aggregates and indexes the best online shopping deals, products and promotions from leading online stores in the country in just one website.
Acting as a one-stop-shop for customers when looking for information on the products they would like to purchase instead of having to browse through numerous websites first as they hunt down that information. Buywela.com is the brainchild of three young innovative Nigerian entrepreneurs:
- Reuben Odunze – CEO and Founder.
- Wisdom Uwaize – Co-Founder.
- Lemeul Okoli – Co-Founder and CTO.
“It is really fascinating in today’s world especially Nigeria, where you can buy almost anything without stepping an inch out of the comfort of your home or office. We have seen an unprecedented increase in the number of e-commerce sites in Nigeria and, as a result, shopping online for the right products becomes stressful and time consuming,” said Odunze.
“The idea for buywela.com is to make shopping online faster and stress-free. Our vision is to be the ‘Google for e-commerce’ aggregating and indexing the world’s online shopping information.”
From just one website, Buywela.com consumers can now shop for products being sold in various Nigerian online stores like Kaymu, Konga, Jumia, Dealdey and Gidimall among others. The site also presents you with the best deals each from each of the online stores, saving you the time of having to browse from every website looking for the best deals and products.
Once you find the products that suits your preference, you just click on the “Buy” button, and you will be re-directed directly to the site from which the information was pulled from.
