Amazon’s arrival into Nigeria’s e-commerce market would increase competition in the area already dominated by Jumia, Konga, and Jiji.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The massive American online retailer Amazon has begun hiring staff for its upcoming Nigerian location.
The American e-commerce behemoth posted a number of job postings on LinkedIn, including those for corporate account managers, start-up sector leaders, senior partners sales managers, and others.
The American e-commerce business will launch operations in Nigeria in 2023 as part of its aspirations to grow to five additional African, South American, and European nations, according to last week’s Peoples Gazette.
According to The Gazette, the e-commerce business will establish a marketplace with access to Fulfillment by Amazon, Amazon’s fulfillment service, in each of the five countries.
The e-commerce giant, which already has operations in 20 nations, will begin doing business in South Africa, Nigeria, Nigeria, Chile, and Colombia in April 2023.
Competition in the market now dominated by Jumia, Konga, and Jiji, among others, would increase as a result of Amazon’s entry into Nigeria’s e-commerce market.
Although Amazon is active in 20 nations with developed economies, its footprint in emerging regions like South America and Africa has been generally limited.
