Marketplace is a place where people buy from people. It’s like a local market, but with one difference: you can buy and sell online without even leaving a room. More than that, here you can also find a job or order services from Nigerians that are close to you.

Basically, whatever you need is on shopi. Just type it in search 🙂

No, as we are not a shop. Shopi is a marketplace — here you can sell your stuff, buy goods from real people, find a job or services you need. Any deal you make, you make with people. And we exist just to help you find each other.
No, we don’t. But you always can discuss with the seller a comfortable way of delivering.
Post your ads on Shopi fast, just take the following steps to proceed:

Notes: if you are not a registered user, the first step will be registration.
1. Click on the button “Sell” or just click Register;

2. Complete all the information (add at least 3 photos for cars and phones); Choose a proper category, upload your photos and write a clear title with a full description of your item. After that, enter a fair price, select attributes and send your advert to review!
3. After filling out the required fields, click on “Post Ad” button;
When you’ve done all of these steps, our moderators will check your advert.
Once your advert is live, you will receive a notification email. In case there’s something wrong, we’ll specify all the mistakes you should edit.
That’s all you need to do!
Welcome to our great Shopi Marketplace!

At first, don’t worry! If you’ve faced such a situation, we recommend:

  1. Wait for a while before your ad passes the moderation. It’s quite possible that our moderators are checking your advert and it will appear in search results within a few hours.
  2. Check your inbox. There you will get a notification when your advert goes live. Also, if there is something wrong with your advert, we’ll specify all the mistakes you should edit.

Important! If you make some changes in your advert, it must pass the moderation one more time. Temporarily we won’t show it in search results.

You can always manage your ads, just sign in to your Shopi account and click on My Adverts.

  1. You must add a precise title for each advert;
  2. Make sure you add brief and clear description without any false information;
  3. Every advert should contain only unique images (taken by you) without any contact information or watermarks.
  4. Make sure you choose an appropriate category. Be attentive, choosing a category for a job proposal or a resume. If you mention the wrong category, we can’t approve your ad.
  5. The prices of your items must correspond to the real prices of similar products.
  6. Indicate correct contact details, so that your potential customers could reach you easily. Try to respond to all the incoming calls or to call back your customers once it’s possible.
  7. All posted products and services must be located in Nigeria.
  8. All items and products must be legally permitted (you can check the list of prohibited items here)
  9. Publish all items for sale separately. There is a rule: “1 ad = 1 item”.
  10. Create different adverts. If there are identical ads we consider them as duplicates and don’t approve.

We prepared for you a few pieces of advice on how to sell like a pro:

  1. Pay attention to the details

    Take the relevant photos of your goods, write a clear detailed description and fill out all the fields in your profile. All of this will help your customers to learn more about you and your product.

  2. Make your advert as risk-free, as possible

    Remember, that you can’t ask for prepayments and be ready to list those delivery services, that presuppose payment after the product arrived.

  3. Answer quickly

    Don’t make your buyers wait for your replies too long. Be online or subscribe to Boost packages to always get SMS-notifications on new messages.

  4. Pay attention to your rating

    Feel free to ask your customers to leave feedback about their experience with you — the more positive comments you have, the more chances you get to attract a lot of buyers.

  5. Use Premium Services to get up to 50x more customers!
