Kwik Launches Kwikstore, an Easy-To-Use E-Commerce Solution to Help African Merchants Sell Online from their Smartphone

KwikStore is a free ecommerce storefront solution that allows any African business owner, merchant, social vendor entrepreneurs and SMEs to create their own online stores

Kwik (Kwik.delivery) is expanding its offer of digital services today with the launch of KwikStore –  adding yet another exciting service to the already sensational offer it brings to African business owners and social vendors.

KwikStore is a free ecommerce storefront solution that allows any African business owner, merchant, social vendor entrepreneurs and SMEs to create their own online stores literally in 5 minutes without any technical knowledge and to run his or her business directly from a smartphone

Social vendors can link their KwikStores to their social media accounts, automating the sale, fulfilment, inventory management and delivery process, giving them the possibility to focus on sales and marketing. KwikStore is a free-to-use feature of the Kwik Delivery app and requires no down payment nor service charge apart from standard payment gateway fees.

KwikStore is a milestone in establishing Kwik as the one-stop-shop for African merchants to run and grow their business from their smartphone

Merchants can fully customize their KwikStore to their brand. Once an order is approved by the merchant, payment is processed automatically through payment partners and a Kwik rider is automatically dispatched to the pickup location; or the order can be picked up directly by the customer.

KwikStore requires a Kwik account but can be used independently of the Kwik Delivery platform, allowing merchants to use the delivery solution of their choice or to sell anywhere in Africa, in areas not yet covered by the Kwik Delivery platform.

KwikStore is a milestone in establishing Kwik as the one-stop-shop for African merchants to run and grow their business from their smartphone” declared Romain POIROT-LELLIG, Founder & CEO of Kwik. “We will continue to expand our offer of innovative digital services focused on enabling African merchants to grow their business with all the benefits that technology brings.

We are very proud to have developed KwikStore in Nigeria with our growing software development team” declares Olivier DECROCK, Cofounder & CTO of Kwik. “Kwik is strongly committed to build its development capacity in the country.”

Kwik was founded in 2018 to provide groundbreaking online services to African merchants in the fields of delivery, fulfilment, and payment. More information on KwikStore can be found at www.Kwik.store
