Who we are

MallforAfrica is Africa's global e-commerce solution. We provide Africans a platform through which to purchase items directly from international online retailers - companies that, otherwise, would be inaccessible to the African population. Our patent pending app, platform, and payment system give users access to hundreds of US and UK e-commerce retailers and more than 8.5 billion products combined. At MallforAfrica, we are passionate about moving the global digital infrastructure forward.

Our patent-pending platform enables people in Africa to shop directly on foreign e-commerce sites, select whatever item they want, and buy it instantly online through our secure payment system. The item is then shipped directly to their home or can be picked up at any of our local pickup stations within days. Before MallforAfrica, most Africans could not purchase directly from US and European sites. By managing every aspect of the order cycle, we offer our customers a simple, secure, and convenient solution to online shopping from some of the best brands in the world - with new sites added every month.

Currently, MallforAfrica is focused on the fastest growing economies in Africa - Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya. We plan on expanding to other African countries.


The journey of the order

MallforAfrica optimizes your shopping experience and makes shopping delightful for every customer. All you need to do is select whatever items you want, and buy it instantly online through our secure payment system. The item is then shipped to our US/UK warehouse and we ship directly via our trusted courier partners to your home, or can be picked up at any of our local pickup stations within days.

We are also able to source products that are not found on our APP.  Just give us a call and let us handle the rest.
