So once upon a time, taxi companies and their likes held sway until Uber came to “Uberize them”
Currently the big eCommerce platforms in Nigeria are holding, but commissions.ng has a plan to “Uberize” them.
Our plan is to leverage on family and social connections to attack the eCommerce market and split it apart.
How eCommerce currently works in Naija
The big players like Konga and Jumia operate market places. Merchants list their products and Customers visit the market place to buy. The big players makes commissions amongst other things from every sale.
How Commissions.ng is Different
Merchants visit commissions.ng to list their products /services
Individuals /businesses (we call them partners and agents) interested in eCommerce visits commissions.ng and genrates their own personalized eCommerce website. www.any-name-you-like.com e.g www.shopperng.com . No special skill is required… just 8 clicks.
This personalized ecommerce store comes pre-loaded with 1000+ products, which belongs to our merchants.
The agents markets his website to his sphere of contact and he/she earns a commission per sale.
We handle the deliveries and processes all orders made by the agents/partners. All the agents/partners do is just marketing.
The implication of our model is that we have completely eliminated the barrier to entry as regards eCommerce. No more hosting/web design issues, logistic challenges, credit card issues, warehousing…everything… we completely insulate the agents from all these… people can now focus on the business of selling.
For those interested, we added a Multi-Level Marketing Component
If agent A invites agent B to sign up, Agent A is entitled to commissions from all sales made by Agent B and even C and D assuming B invited C and C invited D. Agent A is not entitled to anything from E.
There is a catch though… Agent A can only cash out from commissions earned from B, C and D if he (agent A) make some personal sales. For every N1 Agent A sells, he/she can cash out N5 from commissions earned as a result of B,C and D
So here it is house… kindly check out commissions.ng and share feedback
