The invention of the online marketplaces came as a relief to many people in Kenya and around the world. As a result of changing consumer habits, a number of online marketplaces have mushroomed in Kenya with some selling brand new products while others deal with second-hand items.
We live in a deal-hungry society, where everyone’s looking to get the best brands and larger quantities for the least amount of money.
There are a number of reasons why Kenyans prefer the use of online marketplaces as compared to retail shopping which includes affordability, flexibility, convenience, time management and a variety of brands to choose from on a given product
With so many online marketplaces, however, it is sometimes very difficult to identify a genuine online marketplace that offers quality products. Some people have been conned through online marketplaces. This is why market research is required before deciding on placing a given order on an item.
It is always advisable, before ordering something via an online platform, to find out whether you are dealing with a company or just a website. Go for online platforms that are companies or attached to companies.
With the coming of many online shopping platforms, the competition went up. Every platform comes up with their unique way of ensuring that will attract more customers. Before an individual settle on a product, they have done a lot of comparisons from different platforms offering the same.
Online retailers are expected to benefit from reduced delivery time as almost immediate product access improves their position versus stationary retailers, and makes the greater choice, higher convenience and often lower prices of online shopping even more appealing.
