E-commerce in Africa


What is the status of e-commerce in Africa?. Connectivity is now sufficient; Africa is now ready for
e-commerce and there are many excellent African IT companies who provide hardware and software. The leading African countries in
e-commerce are South Africa, Egypt, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Kenya and Senegal. Many others African countries have started initiatives to develop
e-commerce services. The problem with e-commerce in Africa is the lack of online payments. We urgently need to create a common African e-payment system especially adapted to Africa market. This new African e-payment system can be an alternative to debit and credit card payment systems for e-commerce. We need to customize e-commerce to fit the way of life of people living in Africa. Today there is a growing African e-commerce industry. In Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, a Pan-African Alliance on e-Commerce has been launched. Senegal, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, (Ivory Coast), Gabon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Morocco, Ghana, Libya, Kenya and Togo were listed as the 10 countries that have signed with the alliance.

  7. Hi,
    Another thing you should consider when deciding between paid or free services, is that, later on, when you are going to have a bigger business, which service is going to be more difficult and more expensive to transfer all the data onto another platform.
    Thanks.
