As the name goes, UK DUKAS enables anyone in Kenya to shop directly from ANY UK retailers such as Amazon, e-Bay, Newlook, H&M, Next, Argos, Zara, M&S, ASOS, ALDO, BHS, Topshop, Debenhams Boohoo among others and then pay in KSH through M-PESA or Airtel Money and receive have their items delivered in 10-14 working days anywhere in Kenya.
“Our unique selling point is simple,” affirms Lorna Kaaka one of the founders of UKDUKAS we give customers a flat rate on most items around the clock using the order calculator where they can select what they want to purchase and it calculates it all for them. Some customers simply send us links we price the items for them.”
UK DUKAS is not the only site doing this, UKKiosk and Myshopper have been around serving a number of users even though all the three firms haven’t totally sold themselves out to the masses. Vitumob, has also joined them to help satisfy customers needs to buy stuff cheaply abroad and have them shipped directly to their homes and helping break the online shopping barrier and ultimately enabling customers in Kenya to shop from any top online retailers
at very competitive prices.
UK DUKAS will even do better with a major website overhaul to make it simple to use and maybe an app for the smartphone shoppers in Kenya.
