Cameroon is on the ecommerce map as one of the shining stars in the Kaymu chain. Kaymu is an eBay like chain with operations in numerous countries.

Here’s how Kaymu describes itself: “Kaymu is the best online marketplace where buyers and sellers can meet and make awesome deals thanks to the fixed pricing system. Kaymu is the place where you can buy the cheapest items, used or new, such as smartphones, computers, fashion and clothing, home appliances, cars and real estate for the best prices. If you are a merchant and wish to sell your products, making money has never been made so easy! On Kaymu, you can easily advertise and sell them directly to the customers in your area but also spread your business nationwide. All transactions are safe and secure and you can even get to choose where and when the delivery will take place.”

You can read more about Kaymu Cameroon on the Lengow blog here.It’s fascinating to read about ecommerce success in Africa which isn’t often on our radar but one comment from the Kaymu Cameroon CEO Candace Nkoth Bisseck is particularly interesting:

“According to estimates, African ecommerce could reach $75 billion in annual transactions in 10 years from now. Beyond those figures, I strongly believe in its capability to boost local consumption, generate additional business, create employment and therefore more opportunities for Africans.”

Ecommerce in Africa is a trend to watch and it could be a potentially lucrative market for British ecommerce sellers before too long.
