Nigeria’s Shopinfo.com.ng: wants to be the country’s first local shopping search in Nigeria integrated with google maps for easy location of stores in a move aimed at bringing all the shops and products in Nigeria on one platform.
Currently, shopinfo has 50,000 products from over 100 stores all over Nigeria with popular categories which include Mobile Phones, Electronics, Appliances and Computers.
Founded by Sulaiman Teslim Olalekan and Soladogun Ilyas Ademuyiwa, Shopinfo.com.ng says its the first such site in the cuntry allowing users to check the availability of goods.
“Since there is no representation of local stores on the Web and no avenue for shoppers to compare prices across local shops, shopinfo hopes to bridge that gap. It is also easy to get shop location on the platform,” Olalekan says.
Listing of products on shopinfo is absolutely free. It aims to generate revenue via advertisement and sponsored listings.
The two have also started Priceinfo.com.ng, an online price comparison site set to compete with Naspers’ PrceCheck among others.
