Consumer electronics brand Ramtons has signed up with Kilimall to retail its products online. The two companies signed a partnership last week that will see Ramtons take advantage of the growing online shopping population Kenya.
Through Kilimall, Ramtons will be offering products in the Home Appliances category including fridges, cookers, irons, toasters, kettles, heaters and fans among others. This expands Kilimall’s product offering by including a brand that is popular in the Kenyan market.
“This partnership is based on the fact that more and more Kenyans are buying goods online,” said Ramtons Development Manager Ronak Popat. “There is increased demand for home and living products and Kilimall will help us reach an even wider market.”
Kilimall MD Victor Ma said the online retailer has become a lifestyle destination for many Kenyan shoppers. He said since the Ramtons brands were launched on Kilimall website last week, sales have been growing, thanks to discounts extended by Ramtons and the trust the brand has among Kenyans.
In the home category, Kilimall also retails other renowned brands such as LG, Samsung, Hotpoint, Bruhm, Armco and Phillips, among others.
Online shopping has been picking in Kenya over the past few years, boosted by growing internet penetration and home delivery. Kilimall has signed delivery partnerships with four leading service providers who include G4S, Posta Kenya, Fargo Courier and Aramex to ensure delivery in the shortest time possible.
