The trend in the e-commerce industry is for customers to first view the product or whatever they want to buy online, place the order and it will be delivered at their doorsteps. Awesome!
What about if you do not need to go through all this and you simply chat up your favourite store or online business and perform the aforementioned transaction processes by merely using a chat interface? This is double awesome!
This is exactly what BuyChat.ng is doing.
BuyChat.ng was founded by Olayinka Oluwakuse, who also owns BalogunMarket.ng, in October 2016. On the platform, buyers meet sellers in their “stores”, check out their products, agree on a reasonable price and buy. Payments are done within the app and there’s delivery service too.
Beyond ordering goods from different e-commerce store, BuyChat also allows customers buy from restaurants, book short stays in hotels, book local flights, find popular brands and do so much more, all within the app.
This is an awesome idea and hopefully, Nigerians will embrace it because it is seamless.
