Jiji.ng, a Nigerian free online classifieds website, is an arena that provides buyers and sellers the avenue to meet and exchange goods and services.

To get access to their services, potential visitors have to login via their Facebook accounts, click and post a free ad button, add photos and se fini, your business starts.

According to an excerpt from their website: “Sellers can post free ads with pictures, update their ads and get replies from “real” people while buyers can buy anything, call or send messages to sellers and leave a review when the deal has been accomplished”.

A visit to the site unveils a bring-it-on impression, as the services they offer virtually cuts across every human endeavour; okay, maybe not all. But, I’m still trying to wrap my head around their slogan “The best place to sell anything to real people”, guess you don’t want to go there if you’re not…real.

Information from their website reveal the services they offer, which potential clients may find useful, includes electronics, real estate, fashion, vehicles, animals and pets etc.

There seems to be no end to the number of online businesses (either still functioning or gone into oblivion) creeping out from every nook and cranny of cyberspace. There’s Tradestable (which was just acquired by OLX), VConnect, MoboFree, CadaNaija, Locanto, 123Nigeria etc.

I sense that there is a Russian investor interest here, as Jiji is registered to a name suggestive of someone from that region –as revealed by the whoisdomain search. Naij.com (another classified site, owned by a group of Russian content farmers) have a link on their website that directs you to Jiji.ng.

Also, OLX just made a consolidatory move and bought out the competition. Now Jiji appears.
