This post is a follow-up on our recent post, the “Cheapest online book store“, which got a bunch of comments within 24 hours.
Some of our readers asked us: “yeah, that’s nice advice about ordering books online to Tanzania. Where do we buy other stuff online – are there cheap online stores that ship clothing, shoes, electronics, etc. to Tanzania”?
Yes, apart from Amazon, the global giant with very expensive shipping rates to Africa, we don’t have to go far to get our goods shipped.
There are online shops in Tanzania, too. There’s only a few of them, and the range of products they offer still can’t be compared to Amazon’s huge inventory, but the possibility of online shopping in Tanzania very well exists.
Kivuko – Tanzania’s “Online Shopping Gateway”, with relatively good prices.
Shopping.co.tz – Clothing for men, women and kids, Shoes, Watches, Fragrances, electronics… all products are imported directly from the UK.
Shop Online – Tanzania’s First Online Shopping Mall, at the moment with few products.
Kaymu – a marketplace of thousands of online sellers, similar to the Amazon Marketplace.
If you live in Tanzania: Where do you shop online?
