After launching the Retail Section geared towards giving business owners a platform to establish a strong online presence, August 2014, Kenya’s safest online marketplace, PigiaMe, has helped over 1,000 merchants to create their very own online shops.
The retail section gives Kenyan business people an opportunity to create their digital presence and reach hundreds of thousands of new customers for free. Entrepreneurs and other business owners can list their company name, logo, business profile as well as their products and physical location. This allows buyers to see a merchant’s entire portfolio and get in touch with them easily.
Head of Classified Ringier Africa, Clemens Weitz, says “Businesses are realizing the importance of digital expansion in Kenya and taking up opportunities that come with it to expand their businesses. We are very happy about the increase in the number of merchants as this continues to cement PigiaMe’s stand as a key player in the Classified industry in Kenya. Most classifieds only allow individual listings but we are always looking for ways to give our users an all round experience”
