The only e-Commerce company to have established a presence across Nigeria through its massive retail rollout, Konga was equally the sole e-Commerce brand recognized at the well-attended ceremony, which featured several other notable brands and personalities across Nigeria.

In its glowing citation on Konga during the presentation ceremony, the organizers of the awards hailed the management of Konga for revolutionizing e-Commerce in Nigeria and raising the bar of service delivery in the sector.

‘‘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.
