With the increasing use of digital currencies and the adoption of online payment platforms in Ghana shopping online has become a lucrative hobby for many individuals. Gone are the days when one has to travel long distances to the marker or fast food joint to get a product or service. A few of these reputable online stores which continue to meet the demands of the market are Kikuu Ghana, Jumia Ghana, OLX (now currently JiJi.com.gh), Tonaton and Pepapa.com.
As these companies rival to hit the top spot as the most used eCommerce website, Jumia Ghana is comfortably making heavy advancements to achieve that position. Just a quick fact due the nature of online payment platforms local trading is preferred over delivery ones. That is to OLX (Jiji.com.gh) and other middlemen e-commerce trading platforms have more users than straight ones like Jumia or Kikuu.
Why is this so? Well for some reason individuals prefer to meet the trader or buyer personally to covey the product being bought. This is done to affirm the quality of a product rather than just believing a couple of pictures of the product he or she sees online. With that of the way today we are going to help you create a free Jumia account. This account can be used for shopping online from home or work.
