ChopiChop is a cash back website that lists ecommerce stores in and outside Nigeria, as well as products from several ecommerce stores. These stores and products are literally affiliate links, directing users to shop on their preferred platform..
For every completed purchase, ChopiChop gets a commission which they share with users. According to the team, “our business model is based on affiliate program. We have come to help online shoppers save some money they spend online. It’s a win-win program. E-commerce stores get customers, we get commission and we share the commission with our users.”
The founders revealed that the ChopiChop service would be officially launched to the public in August 2017.
Users would be able to withdraw their earnings into their bank accounts or convert it to mobile airtime, pay electricity bills or pay for TV cable subscription or even donate it to their favorite charity homes.
It’s not new that several ecommerce platforms provide opportunity for people to become affiliate marketers. Through this programme, these affiliate partners are able to earn commissions by sharing their special affiliate links on their websites, social media profiles, with family and friends, and getting people to shop on the platforms.
ChopiChop is no different from affiliate marketers. Only difference is, they’ve found a way to convert this into a business.
People would do anything to shop for less, and getting a percentage back from what they’ve spent looks even more attractive. The platform definitely has a potential of wining the hearts of millions of Nigerians.
