It is important to note that Kusnap Africa Limited (with registration number RC:1505040) came into the limelight in May 2020 following the desire to ease the trading difficulties that were being experienced at the time due to Covid-19. Since then, Kusnap has established itself as one of the credible and top e-commerce platforms that entrepreneurs rely on in running businesses in the digital space in Nigeria.
Therefore, the acute penetration of Kusnap over the last few months has brought with it endless opportunities that many entrepreneurs seize as advantages to propagate and expand their businesses. Without a doubt, running a business in the digital space has become more exciting, especially in our ever-growing technology world. The pandemic has driven technology advancement, which has resulted in a ripple effect that has changed the whole landscape of business and trading, leading to a new normal.
Interestingly, the digital space in Nigeria has seen tremendous growth in the last decade. It is not surprising because many people get exposed daily to the boundless opportunities available to online businesses. Currently, Nigeria is among the top countries with an effective internet economy in Africa and one of the big players on the global stage. Nigeria is the 6th populous nation in the world after Brazil, with a sufficiently young population, which is doubtlessly the reason for the exponential growth seen in the Nigerian digital sphere.
With improving technological development, standard infrastructure for ideal internet connectivity, and good network coverage, there has been a rapid rise in internet penetration up to about 60 percent (according to Statista). Additionally, the rate of ownership of mobile devices in Nigeria is up to 50 percent, allowing more access to the internet through mobile devices than desktops. All these statistics contribute to the growth of the Nigerian landscape and make it a huge potential market for many e-commerce businesses to thrive. This is an indication that Nigeria is moving towards a cashless economy, which is understandable as diverse digital payments and electronic banking are being executed through phases. Also, numerous emerging digital financial service platforms have helped the proliferation and growth of e-commerce in Nigeria.
