MallforAfrica adds e-Bay inventory

mallforafricaPORTLAND, OR: August 03, 2016. MallforAfrica (MFA), the e-commerce platform that enables Nigerian and Kenyan residents to access 180 retail sites, has added e-Bay to its marketplace inventory.

According to DHL the B2C online shopping market was worth US$1 trillion in 2015 with half the commerce derived from the Asia-Pacific region and a further 25 percent in North and Latin America.

MFA says it provides consumers access to over 8.5 billion items via a guaranteed payment system and plans to enter 18 more countries in the next two years. The new partnership with eBay will add over 900 million listings worldwide.

DHL and Redstar Express, the Nigerian licensee for FedEx, are MFA's "trusted courier partners" to deliver online orders.

"We are super excited for our customers to be able to shop on one of the world's most popular sites with our app and coming soon the eBay app focused on Africa," said MFA founder and CEO Chris Folayan. "We have no doubt that eBay will become one of their go-to sites for shopping."

MFA manages every aspect of the order cycle from retailers that include Macy's and Juicy Couture - companies that it says would otherwise be inaccessible to African consumers.

"We couldn't be more pleased to partner with MallforAfrica, Africa's largest online mall," added Fernando Saiz, eBay's Business Development director. "eBay is proud and extremely excited in entering the African market providing our marketplace sellers with the opportunity to sell into Africa taking advantages of the key benefits MallforAfrica is known for."
