‘‘To date, (Konga) has processed well over 15 million orders and remains the only e-Commerce platform in Africa that operates an omnichannel structure; fusing an online platform with a growing chain of retail stores located across the country. Konga is the first Nigerian e-commerce platform to launch the online marketplace, creating a powerful, secure engine which brings together credible sellers and buyers together for a mutually rewarding business relationship.

It…also pioneered the concept of online and offline Black Friday sales in Nigeria, ensuring that walk-in customers to its retail stores nationwide can also participate in the globally celebrated sales fiesta,’’ it stated.

Furthermore, the organizers credited Konga for building a world-class in-house logistics service company, KXpress that handles deliveries to shoppers as well as to external parties. In addition, they hailed KongaPay, a highly secure Central Bank of Nigeria-licensed payment platform, which was described as a game-changer in online shopping in Nigeria.
