Online shopping in Kenya has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years and is fast becoming popular. Here’s a list of 8 online stores for all your needs including clothes, electronics, motor vehicles, household goods and many, many more:
LiveMall is Africa’s premier e-commerce shopping Store, they offer the Kenyan Market genuine products and services, they’re arguably the most trusted online store according to their reviews.
This is unquestionably Kenya’s Amazon. Jumia Kenya is a marketplace listing products from hundreds of small businesses in Nairobi. Their most popular products are phones, laptops, tablets and households.
Kilimall is a capable competitor in the Kenya online ecosystem. Just like Jumia, Kilimall gives hundreds of small business owners a platform to sell their products provided they are new and genuine. The online retailer provides home deliveries in Nairobi and through Posta to other parts of the country.
Similar to OLX, PigiaMe is a marketplace for both new and used items. The platform allows sellers to reach their target market. As is the case with OLX a lot of caution is needed when buying or selling on this platform.
5. Kaymu Market
A sister company to Jumia Kenya. Kaymu Jumia market is designed for small sellers rather than the branded sellers that list on Jumia Kenya. The website allows the customers to directly communicate with the seller and also rate them.
The website lists daily deals and discounts on travel, hotels, events and hundreds of products. They use a similar model to Groupon allowing consumers to take advantage of group’s bargaining power. It may be worth having a look at their offers before purchasing any product.
Cheki.co.ke is arguably Kenya’s biggest cars vendor. The website lists both new and used cars and allows the customers to compare prices, read reviews and find spare parts. In a bid to attract even more people, Cheki also links the customers with loan providers.
Electro Hub is to the male species what a candy store is to kids. In stock is everything from tyres, speakers and watches to phones. Payment by M-Pesa and Airtel Money is accepted.
