- You should also go for items with light weight to avoid paying too much money for the shipping fee.
Best Platforms To Buy From
There are several platforms where you can shop online on your mobile phone and send it to Nigeria. I will be showing you a few but I will recommend the one I use and I will give you my reasons.
The one I recommend is Alibaba because it has a lot of features.
- Refund policy
You can get a refund when a seller sells bad or defective products to you. You can also raise a claim when in a situation whereby the item wasn’t sent or the item sent isn’t complete.
- Price Limit
You can set limits on products you intend to buy. You can choose a range and this makes searching for products easy.
It also has a feature that makes you chat with sellers. With this feature you can tell a seller to customize your product, you can select different colors of the product, you can also ask for videos from the sellers and you can ask for all the information you need before making a purchase.
- Flexible Payment Method
Payment on Alibaba is so simple, you can use your local debit card to make a payment (Master or Visa card) which means you do not need an agent to help you make a payment. Although most banks only allow you to make a payment of 100USD a month I will show you how to make a payment above 100USD.
- Mobile app.
The best part is that you can operate this platform on your mobile phone. No need for a laptop
How to place an order
I will be showing you how to place an order for items on Alibaba and it is so simple.
- First, you will need to download the Alibaba app on your phone
Android >>> Download here
iOs>>> Download here
Desktop>>> Click here
- Register using your Gmail or any other email address but I find it easier using Gmail because it is already logon on my phone and I just need to make a click and I will have access to my Alibaba account on my android phone.
- Search for the item you want to buy. You can search by typing the item’s name and as you search you will see many options. You can add the ones that meet your criteria to your favorite list.
- The next step is to send a message to the sellers that meet your specification and negotiate the price. You can tell them to send you pictures and videos of the items. You can also discuss color, customization, and any other modification you need on the item.
- You need to send the seller your shipping agents’ details. You will need to have a shipping agent in china that can help you send items to Nigeria.
You can also try shipping directly through DHL or other courier companies but the fee is usually high.
You can also send your items through sea freight which is very cheap but it will take around 3 months before it gets to Nigeria. You can use this if you are importing heavy and plenty items.
The option I use which I also suggest you go for at the moment is air freight using an agent in china. The details of my agent are below and you can send them to your seller.
- At this point, you should request an invoice from the seller. Make sure all your transactions are done on the Alibaba platform to avoid being scammed.
For instance, I chat with sellers on WhatsApp but when it comes to making payments, I make sure it is done through the Alibaba app.
- You can make a payment using your debit master card.
Most banks usually give you a limit of $50 per month but if you have a situation whereby the item you are buying is over $50, you can tell the seller to split the invoice and pay based on how you intend to pay.
You can pay using Paypal but you will need to fund your account with USD. Once your account is funded, you can make payments easily.
How to receive your order
Once you have followed the steps above you should just be expecting your item
Your order should arrive within 14 to 21 days and you can go to pick it up at their warehouse in Lagos. This can also be done ina any country or city as you will always have shipping agents available.
Shipping through sea
You can also ship by sea if you have big items to import. Send items through sea freight is more economical but the item takes about 3-4 months before it gets to Nigeria from china.
You can send a WhatsApp message to the number below to help you import items from China. You can also contact me to help you promote your products on Facebook and Instagram.
Cheers to your success in business!
