Startup profile: Shopity — shop directly from China and pay in Naira

by | Sep 19, 2017

Shopity is an online store that offers a wide collection of curated products, that are shipped directly from China and easily paid for in Naira. Products available on the platform cut across electronics, fashion, luxury, to sporting goods, home and garden wares, office appliances, gadgets, etc.

Founded on July 10, 2017, Shopity aims to make waves in the saturated eCommerce space, by giving 40 – 70% cheaper products than other eCommerce platforms.

From all indications, the newly launched startup seems ready to give all it takes to win the heart of customers. The founder hints at this when he said: “There are countless reasons to love online shopping on Shopity. We have created the most convenient way to shopping online with an e-shop (e-market).”

How Shopity works


Shopping on the platform is a four-step process; search for your intended product, make payment if the product proves satisfactory (with credit/debit cards or via bank transfer), receive your shipment once payment is confirmed, then submit a review of the product received.

It takes Shopity 12-22 business days to successfully ship processed orders from the Chinese manufacturers to your doorstep. Currently, the home delivery option is only available to Lagos residents. Nonetheless, orders can be delivered to other states via waybill services.

Of course, Shopity wouldn’t be the first to steer the international eCommerce course, the likes of Kilimall, Jumia Global, and Mall for Africa already have their share of the market. But Ijezie Chimmie, the Chief Executive Officer says their products’ affordability and highly discounted deals beat others.

Compared to other “online shopping malls,” Shopity doesn’t allow merchants list their products on their portal; instead they source for good bargains and discount, curate them and offer them to customers, so be rest assured all products on Shopity have been curated and verified.

If you wish to get deep discounts and bargains from merchants in China, you should head to the website immediately.
