Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Kenya’s online shopping space is bracing for more competition in 2017 with more investors rolling out platforms to make buying and selling of goods and services easier.

Demart, a Chinese firm said it is launching a platform in the first quarter of 2017 that will enable Kenyan consumers to buy goods directly from manufacturers in China and also roll out after sales services for products purchased from the application.

“Ours will be a platform that offers quality products and affordable price aimed at offering consumers value for their money,” said Demart’s Haiming Li.

“We have partners in leading Chenese manufacturing sector that will be able to sustain demands of Kenyans,” he said adding that the company will next month ship technical team to Nairobi in readiness for the launch of the application.
