Many firms have been compelled to rethink and strategize their present business models as a result of the pandemic. Since Nigerians embrace a cashless society, many transactions have been conducted online using digital financial service platforms created by innovators.

Due to that, e-commerce has emerged as a viable choice for most firms, particularly SMEs, seeking to take their operations online and gain visibility.

Nigeria has a large digital audience, according to Statista, and mobile devices are utilized to access the internet more frequently than desktop ones. In 2019, mobile devices accounted for over 70% of internet usage, with this percentage considerably greater when it comes to trips to online marketplaces. Taking your firm online, based on this data, appears to be the greatest strategy to succeed in a competitive market.
