Nigerian logistics platform launches Kwikstore, an easy-to-use e-commerce solution to help African merchants sell online from their smartphones – Business Insider Africa

Business Insider Edition
Kwik ( has expanded its digital service offering with the launch of KwikStore – adding another exciting service to an already sensational offering for African business owners and social providers.
KwikStore is a free e-commerce storefront solution that allows any African business owner, trader, social vendor entrepreneur and SME to create their online store in literally 5 minutes without any technical knowledge and run their business directly from their smartphone.
Social vendors can link their KwikStores to their social media accounts, automating sales, fulfilment, inventory management and shipping, freeing them to focus on sales and marketing.
Merchants can fully customise their KwikStore to match their brand. Once the merchant approves the order, payment is automatically processed through the payment partners, and the 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 sell anywhere in Africa in areas not yet covered by the Kwik Delivery platform.
KwikStore is a free-to-use feature of the Kwik Delivery app and does not require any upfront payment or service fees other than standard payment gateway fees.
“KwikStore is a milestone in Kwik’s establishment as a one-stop shop for African traders to manage and grow their business from their smartphone,” Romain Poirot-LELIG, founder and CEO of Kwik, said. “We will continue expanding our offering of innovative digital services to enable African merchants to grow their businesses with all the benefits that technology brings.”
“We are very proud to have developed KwikStore in Nigeria with our growing software development team“, says Olivier DECROCK, co-founder and CTO of Kwik. “Kwik is firmly committed to building its development potential in the country.”
Kwik was founded in 2018 to provide innovative online delivery, fulfilment and payment services to African merchants.
