Konga partners Unilever for free, contactless delivery of household products

Konga has partnered with renowned Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) manufacturer, Unilever to provide a wide range of products on the e-commerce site with free delivery to shoppers across the country.

Konga says that Unilever is indeed keen to leverage Konga’s massive regional warehousing infrastructure, advanced logistics capabilities and unmatched reach, through its thriving online platform which caters to a growing clientele of online shoppers in search of genuine products at the best prices available in the market. Further increasing the appeal of Konga as a premium vehicle suited to Unilever’s ambition of reaching new and potential customers is the e-commerce company’s network of physical stores widely dispersed in the metropolises and various nooks and crannies across Nigeria’s vast landscape and its Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) licensed payment wallet, KongaPay; factors that have made it the toast of a number of top global brands looking to make an in-road into Africa’s biggest market via e-commerce.
