‘Konga’, synonymous with online shopping and door to door delivery, is partnering with the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) to ensure they reach customers in every part of the country, according to a media report.
The new partnership will leverage on the niche both companies have carved for themselves. NIPOST has outlets (or offices) virtually all over Nigeria, while Konga has products (goods) that online shoppers in those remote regions need but may not have access to.
The launch event for this partnership will be happening at the University of Lagos Post Office by noon today.
NIPOST, a government-owned and operated corporation, is the Nigerian postal administration responsible for providing postal services while Konga is one of Nigeria’s online largest online mall.
If this alliance goes the way both parties intended, online shoppers in remote areas in Nigeria may soon start to enjoy the dividends of online shopping/delivery.
