Almost everyone can agree that doing business in African countries can be a hassle. However, it is usually very rewarding as it is appealing. Even with the number of businesses thriving and sprouting in the African continent, there are still so many issues. One of the most common is accessibility. The lack of access has crippled quite a lot of businesses. These businesses cover all industries you can think of. For the ones that aren’t crippling, huge amounts of money are being used to keep their business afloat. However, the rise of technology has completely transformed the business area. Now, more online markets are coming up.
In the business-to-business sector, however, there are no online platforms focused on African products. Imagine not being able to showcase your products online to the right customers. Or when you do, it requires a lot of money. Platforms like Alibaba and the rest aren’t also helpful in this case. This is why when alabamarket.com announced its interest in being the platform for B2B in Africa, it was a sigh of relief.
Alabamarket.com is an e-commerce B2B platform created for businesses operating in African countries. The idea is to curb the low connectivity between sellers and end-users all across Africa. Thus, bridging the age-long gap. Imagine being able to buy every manufactured product in Africa with ease. This will easily allow more wholesalers, manufacturers and suppliers within the African market trade goods and services to one another.
Additionally, it will also boost the market connectivity between wholesalers and their buyers all across Africa. On the Alabamarket platform, all you just need to do is sign up. Then, you get access to lots of buyers who are waiting to access sellers on different categories.
The categories of the site are also not limited. Categories range from Agriculture to Infrastructural products. Being able to connect millions of businesses across Africa is one of their aims and they have been doing well so far.
