A few months ago we covered the launch of Gokool a Nigerian e-commerce firm selling auto parts, building and construction materials and the electrical accessories.
Launched by 23-year-old Charles Philip Ukaegbu, Gokool
has a network of dealers of only GENUINE auto parts,electrical accessories and building materials and have deals with these suppliers who warehouse these goods and Gokool just delivers them to its customers based on orders.
Today we came across another platform with slightly the same business model. The platform, Authentic Spare Parts
offers new and old but quality car parts to buyers in Nigeria especially for Honda and Toyota cars. The platform has sprouted from an offline business of car spare parts which has served the Nigerian wholesale market for a number of years.
Run by Ini Akpan, the new electronic store
aim to serve mainly the country’s auto parts wholesalers automobile across the country. Though, the shop has no clear plans on delivery, it hopes to make genuine car spare parts available to those that need them across the country. The firm aims to sale to car service centers, homes, offices and corporate firms with its promise of quality and affordability.
GoKool, on the other hand is an online shopping mall in Nigeria selling building and construction materials, home and office furnitures,electrical accessories and appliances, automobile parts and more to all of Nigeria. Gokool has wholesale and retail partners it can order and delivery its customers orders from.Gokool, earlier told TechMoran
it had partnered with TRANEX to help it delivery the orders around the country.
We are not sure if AuthenticSpare Parts will go into building materials but cutting out a niche is great.
