Buying products are much easier now as smartphones and tablets have become key tools for shoppers in Nigeria. You can shop from the comfort of your home, check for the availability of products, compare prices, get notification for special deals and promotions, receive discounts, read reviews and view latest prices in multiple catalogs as well as lowest prices on your smartphone.

With merchants investing in mobile marketing, several local e-commerce sites have already launched their mobile apps. However, not all them offer all-round shopping. If you looking for a mobile app that provides a wide range of product categories, Jovago.com, Africa’s no 1 online hotel booking portal has top 4 mobile shopping apps for all-round online shopping in Nigeria.


Jumia considers itself to be Nigeria’s largest online shopping store. Naturally, the company has a mobile app which provides users with access to gadgets, homeware, appliances, clothing, fashion accessories, toys and music, all of which is available on the shopping website. Visitors can check product prices, ratings and reviews, store inventory and also access their existing cart, wish lists, payment and shipping options right from the app. All purchases made on Jumia’s mobile app are routed through its secure servers just as they are on the web.

The app has just about everything under the sun including clothing, accessories, food and beverages, home design products, and much more. Shoppers using the Konga app can also sort and filter search results by product ratings.
