There are a lot of opportunities to make money legally online, one of them is by selling your goods on ecommerce websites such as Jumia and Konga.

KONGA SELLERHQ: This is’s online platform for individuals and companies to sell their goods on, Although many people are unaware of this, Konga itself just like most ecommerce websites sells only very few goods, majority of the goods are sold by traders registered by Konga who then pay a percentage of their sales to Konga which is currently from 3 – 15% of the selling price of any product.

Anyone can become a seller on Konga, simply visit and register for a free account, then you can start listing your products by uploading pictures and writing descriptions, your listing will then be manually reviewed by a Konga staff and if accepted it will be live on the website.

Users browsing for products might see it and order it and you must be able to  ship the order within 5 days from the order date or it will be automatically cancelled and your seller ranking will decrease which means your products will not be seen by prospective buyers as frequently as before.

You can get goods to sell from Aliexpress and other websites with cheap products and sell on Konga, you can also sell locally made products. Konga automatically offers pay on delivery to almost all locations in Nigeria so you must be willing to accept Pay on Delivery orders as that is what you will get mostly.

You can increase your sales by advertising on the Konga homepage, I am sure you have seen some products featured on their front page, there are different categories of adverts ranging from Gold to Bronze with different prices and positions on the front page. You can advertise on the KongaSellerHQ website.


Jumia Nigeria also offers a similar seller platform as Konga and everything is basically the same although it seems they only accept sellers based in Lagos, Nigeria.
