Online store, Kpakpakpamarket.com has been awarded the emerging e-commerce of the year at the just-ended 6th Ghana Information Technology and Telecom Awards (GITTA) held in Accra.
Commenting on the award, promoters of the “Kpakpamarket.com, in a statement said that they were poised to lead the charge of the country’s discounters as cash-strapped shoppers become more price conscious about what they buy.
“The platform offers companies, retailers, merchants and small scale traders an e-market platform to advertise and sell products in the most convenient hustle free environment via the internet,” it said.
It said “Kpakpamarket.com, which retails both new and old items as well as as-it-is ones, is the first platform that now allows consumers to bid for items and when offer is accepted, the product is delivered directly to the consumer before payment is made.”
The portal works on the click and brick model with the products being ordered online, and Kpakpakpamarket’s partners – its dealers, distributors, and logistics teams helping in delivery.
“This is our drive. By passing on the discounts we agree on with our registered suppliers/merchants unto our buyers, we encourage bulk or wholesale purchases, thus creating a win-win-environment for the buyer and the seller. By this approach we are able to also assure our buyers of genuine products and eliminating fraud,” a statement from the company said.
It noted that by adding discounted inventory to its growing database of heavily discounted products, a seller could be assured of traffic to the products.
