NeXchange berths in Nigeria, to market small businesses – As the world of commerce gets busier, a new online platform, Nexchange has debut in the country purposely to link buyers and sellers of quality pre-hold items.
The company which unveiled its new app recently, said it hopes to give members of the public the opportunity to make money from household items that are still good, functional but unused or idle and only occupying spaces in the house.
The Business Development Manager, The Exchange Point Limited, who runs the new e-commerce platform, Mr Moses Nwanze, said aside linking buyers and sellers, the new platform is unique in the sense that it offers subscribers the options of price negotiation, product inspection, personalised product delivery, seller to buyer confidentiality, product installation among others.
He said “One of the opportunities the platform is offering is the avenue for Nigerians who continued to keep items they no more used to sell off those items and make some money. NeXchange marketing platform will also afford Nigerians who are unable to purchase new items the opportunity to get something close and relatively cheap.”
Nwanze also argued that the recycling and subsequent reusing of old items was in being eco-conscious, noting that the company was not oblivious of the challenges of online credibility.
“A lot of people buy second hand items because they cannot afford new ones so we (NeXchange) are selling quality second hand items on our online platform.
“We try to create confidentiality where the buyer does not know the seller. So, we have customer service agents such that once we get an information of purchase, we pick up the item from the buyer and then we do the first line of inspection.
