Zambia’s leading telecommunications company, MTN Zambia, has partnered with Zambezii.com to allow Zambian business to trade online, through an eCommerce platform.
Zambezii.com is a digital platform that empowers local businesses on their quest to reach out to the continent as a whole. It bridges the gap in business-to-business (B2B)interactions, promoting business suppliers and business buyers by providing a localized digital solution to boost regional trade, enhance procurement, and assist businesses to trade online.
MTN Zambia is charging forward with an initiative to assist SMEs with digital transformation through device loans, mobile financial services, packaged bundles, and more. Zambezii.com will be part of this initiative by offering its services in full form, complimenting MTN’s existing offerings by adding a digital platform to all packages presented by MTN to its clients. The addition of Zambezii.com means clients can be taken through the whole digital journey without falling off half-way, a complete solution, only accessible through one single provider.
Zambezii.com services will be offered to MTN clients through multiple tier packages, where clients will be onboarded after registering through the dedicated MTN channel. This will include product photography, data collection, online store branding and an online store launch.
The platform has over 200 businesses registered that many smaller SMEs would find it difficult to get access to through traditional means. A dedicated search bar on the Zambezii platform allows instant results for any products that buyers are looking for and get quotations within a matter of minutes, so they do not have to run around to physically find these.Payments for orders can be made via Mobile Money, credit cardand bank transfer options.
MTN Zambia Enterprise Business General Manager, Mrs. Mildred Chica is pleased with the partnership, stating that “One of our biggest priorities is to enable and ensure that all SMEs have the best digital products and this partnership with Zambezii.com is one way that we are trying to encourage businesses to make use of online services and make their businesses digital.”
She added “The partnership with Zambezii.com on the eCommerce platform is an enrichment to the product offering by MTN Zambia enabling SMEs to take their products online.”
Zambezii.com Managing Director, Mr. Ali Karnib said“Businesses will have a platform that will cover all their procurement needs, quotations, acquisitions, digital marketing, order management, and will give them the freedom to add their own prices”.
Through the Zambezii platform, the same buying process is maintained, but transferred online to promote ease of business. Using the platform is easy, the onboarding is quick and the Zambezii team is available to help with setting up shop and getting businesses ready for the future.
