Why don't you simply use myafricanstoredotcom?

So as long as the item you wish to purchase is a 'Buy It Now' item, it will be purchased for you and delivered in Nigeria.

Charge is 3% max and you can pay in Naira.

Most people get blocked because they keep on logging into their account by making use of a Nigeria ip address. The smart way to go about it it to make use of a VPN service.

U can shop from ebay and amazon.com and get your goods in Nigeria but only that the goods will be delivered thru a virtual address. Just search on google "virtual us address" and that will help out

e-bay did not accept people from Nigeria but there is a way you can shop online (even with ebay) from anypart of the country. I have an e-book writing my a friend on 'how to buy things from yankee' if you are interested you can e-mail me on 'blacckygeorge@gmail.com' it is about 140+ pages. with this book, you dont need to have a relative over there for your goods to be deliver to your door-step. Good luck!

If it were me when next am travelling to Naija, I'll just let EBay know about the travel and how long I'll be there for.

Just like when peeps inform banks they're travelling abroad should in case the banks start noticing unfamiliar & foreign credit card spending patterns

and so prevent the banks clamping up the card

Tell me you are joking? Bidding on a car on ebay from Nigeria as a Nigerian?

Dear all,

When one talks of buying on ebay and amazon, we need to consider that some items are not found on amazon.

in fact what brought me here is that i did a search on how a nigerian can buy on ebay and this page came up.

I wanted to bid on a CAR and was wondering how to ship it to Nigeria but was not getting result i expected.

But No car auction is on amazon to serve as an alternative.

Kindly advice what i may likely do.

Thank you all for the wonderful contributions.

I don't use credit cards except debit cards from Nigerian banks so it's useless on international scene. But dom can do the rest, I have used it before on a different situation. My bro bought from a website. I am buying from an individual from craigslist

I'm also in need of help here, I am trying to buy some computer parts from an american seller but I am afraid paying this fellow directly because I am critical of being duped by an american. this happened before to my elder Brother, he needed a software with licence from an american developer, he went to his bank, got a bank draft and I was even the person who went to mail the check to this american criminal through UPS paying 9, 500 naira just to ship a check. @ the end of the day, the american animal got the check, cashed and spent the money without shipping the products my bro paid for. So is there any reputable Nigerian or any old nairalander living in the states that can assist with my buying from the states? I have a dom account so it's easy to send money abroad.

Yea your items will get shipped to Nigeria. I have been using Ebay since 2003, although when I first started there were really no Nigerian 419 guys there.Now they are "billions" of them. As a result you find some sellers actually putting up notices on their sales page like " Will not ship to Nigeria" Of all the 200 or so countries in the world, its Nigeria, everyone seems to mention.

Nonetheless, many Nigerians including me still buy and sell on ebay.

The shipping issue depends on the seller. If a seller explicity states he will not ship to Nigeria and you want his product, you can take any of theses two options:

1) Mail him before you bid, stating that you are geninue, although in Nigeria and see his response.Communication is key on ebay.

2) Contact someone with an account in the US to bid for you.

Apart from buying and selling on ebay, we run a service for people in buying or selling for them and quality services is guranteed.Send me a mail if this option might interest you. ini7000@yahoo.com

from his very first post i knew that Ccomputers was a joker.

i really wonder how people fall for internet scams?

i am not the most intelligent of persons but each time i can smell the coffee from a mile off.

i wish everyone will just ignore his mails and continue a worthwhile discussion, if their is still more to be said on this topic.

the guy does not even understand the concept of paypal and Ebay that is being talked about.

i guess his 419 masters just gave him a template to use in replying to mails and he probably does not know where the caps lock key is on the keyboard.

so much for a laptop importer. importer my foot!!!!

THERE IS NO NEED ABUSING ME ITS SO SIMPLE. I HAVE HAD PAY PAL WHEN I WAS IN MY SS3 SECONDARY SCHOOL ABOUT 6YRS AGO. PAY PAL IS NOT A CHILD'S GAME AND IF YOU KNOW MUCH ON IT THEN TELL NIGERIAN HOW THEY CAN DO IT.

THERE ARE SECRET THINGS AND THERE ARE MERCHANT THAT DEALS ON UNITS IN THAT UK U ARE THAT U EVEN DON'T KNOW WHY I KNOW AND SHOP FROM THEM.

U MUST NOT KNOW EVERYTHING. AS FOR ME AM NOT IN THE USA BUT WITH MY EMAIL AND MY CREDIT CARD AND PAY PAL ACCOUNT, I GIVE COMMANDS TO WHITE MEN AND THEY OBEY ME AND I GET MY COMPUTERS DOWN HERE AND CLEAR THEM AT THE CUSTOMS AND THEN HAVE THEM DOWN HERE IN AWKA.

I HAVE THE NEW PAY PAL PLUS CARD AND ITS WORKING FOR ME AS I AM TYPING THIS HERE. SO DON'T TELL ME I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT PAY PAL COS AM AN INTERNET MARKETER AND KNOW REAL SECRETS AND GENUINE ONE'S .

THANKS A LOT NIGERIANS

@justwise,

BRO ALL THESE THINGS ARE SECRETS AND ITS VERY MUCH WORKING AND NO NEED FOR UR ACCOUNT TO BE CLOSE AND EVEN IF U WANT THE PAY PAL PLUS CARD I WILL GET IT FOR U.

BUT LIKE I SAID I MUST VERIFY UR DETAILS AND WHO U ARE AND KNOW U WELL BEFORE I DO THAT FOR U.

AS FOR VERIFYING THE BANK DETAILS THAT IS NOT REALLY THE PROBLEM AND WHAT PAY PAL IS AFTER BUT WHAT THEY ARE AFTER IS U AND WHAT U WANT TO DO WITH THEIR SITE AS THE BANK DETAILS IS JUST PRIMARY ISSUE WHICH THEY WILL NEED.

DEAR ALL,

PAY PAL IS SECURED NOW VERY MUCH WELL COS EBAY.COM HAS BOUGHT IT AND DEPENDING ON WHAT U WANT TO USE IT TO DO . NO ONE IN USA, CANADA, UK OR EVEN EUROPE WILL AGREE TO OPEN A PAY PAL ACT FOR A NIGERIAN EVEN THOUGH THE PERSON MIGHT BE HIS SISTER OR HER BROTHER COS ONCE U DO DIS AND THERE IS ANY FRAUD TRACE, PAY PAL WILL COME D NEXT MINUTE WITH FBI KNOCKING ON UR DOOR.

SO FOR SOMEONE THERE TO OPEN THESE ACCOUNTS FOR U, D PERSON MUST BE SURE THAT UR A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND DAT U CANT AND WILL NEVER GO INTO FRAUD.

I OPEN PAY PAL FOR PEOPLE BUT I DON'T DO IT AS BUSINESS LIKE MANY NIGERIAN DO COS B4 I WILL OPEN FOR U , I MUST KNOW WHAT U DO AND WHO U ARE BEFORE DOING THAT OR ELSE ANYTHING DAT GOES WRONG FBI WILL JUST GO AND LOCK UP MY COMPANY IN NEW YORK COS THAT'S D ADDRESS WHICH I USE.

ALL THESE THINGS ARE VERY EASY AND THAT'S IF U HAVE D SKILL AND THE LINK UPS AND THAT WHY EACH NIGERIAN NEEDS THIS IMPORTATION TRAINING BUT AS IT IS I CANT DO IT FOR MANY PEOPLE BUT FOR FEW AND JUST FEW.

THANKS A LOT NIGERIANS

I'm surprised at Nigerians even more so surprised at Nigerians who live abroad and are failing to enlighten the folks back home how PayPal works, how the hell do you think you can shop directly with EBay from Nigeria when you don't and cant have a paypal account eh? the Credit and debit card platforms are diffrent plus you need phone or bank activation to be able to open a PayPal account,hence yahoo boys hack and steal real PayPal accounts to jump that bridge, I have an EBay account and a PayPal one to, I logged into my PayPall account from Nigeria once, in less than30mins my account was suspended, to re open it, I have to log into my on line bank account or wait for my credit card statements cos PayPall will deposit lil sum into it and ask you to fill in the amount for them to re open the account. SO if they cant deposit money unto ur account or they cant activate your paypal account via phone cos you are in Nigeria, how do you intend on opening a pypal account then?forget the yahoo boyz, there are more scams coming from India and china than any scam yahoo boyz can pull in 30 years to come,come to think of it, have you guys ever sat down and thought bout the fact of where and from whom yahoo boyz buy thier tools from ie CC,Bank AC//on-line password etc? from India and china UK,America you name it, they under publish thier crime and highlight the ones of Nigerians whom only account for less than 2% of overall fraud caused on-line,wise up Nigerians re-brand yourselves.

@sunnykiss,

LIKE I SAID MY BUSINESS IS A PHYSICAL ONE AND WHY I PUT UP THAT WEB IS JUST TO WRITE THE THINGS I IMPORT DOWN FOR ANY ONE ONLINE THAT NEEDS TO SEE IT; TO HAVE A LOOK AND VIEW IT.

WHEN THERE IS THE NEED TO CREATE A CUSTOMIZED WEB THEN I WILL DO THAT.

AS FOR THE TRAINING PLS ONLY THE PEOPLE THAT ARE READY WILL CALL OR MAIL ME AND LIKE I SAID ITS COSTLY BUT PROFITABLE COS THE US MARKET IS THE BEST AND ANYTHING U GET THEIR MY DEAR U HAVE MORE THAN 1YR GUARANTEE TO IT.

I tried calling Meg witman on ebay when my account was suspended.

The true owner of the mail box responded with a very programmed response.

I never tried going there again.

I would recomend shopping on flegz.com though

If you don't find what you want there, you can request it.

Cheers.

Though there are plenty of merchants on eBay, many of the items are sold by private individuals, and not merchants. Hence there is a risk associated with the initial purchase. Adding a middleman into the situation would only further complicate the matter if the seller didn't live up to his part of the deal. If I were in Naija and I wanted something from Ebay, I would not use any such service.

And to Ccomputers I would not even consider using a service from someone with such poor internet etiquette. I understand you want to hustle your product, but you are spamming the boards with your constant sales pitches. Also typing in all caps as perceived as shouting on the web, and is commonly practised by retards.

NIGERIANS PLS AM SO SORRY FOR THAT.

LIKE I SAID MY BUSINESS IS SORT OF A PHYSICAL ONE AND WHY I JUST DEVELOPED THAT WEBSITE IS FOR PEOPLE TO SEE JUST THE DESCRIPTION OF WHAT I IMPORT AND THAT'S ALL.

I DID IT FOR PEOPLE ONLINE TO SEE AND TO STOP ASKING ME THE SPECIFICATION , THE BRAND AND ALL SORTS OF QUESTIONS O THAT'S WHY THE WEB IS STILL LIKE THAT.

ONCE THEIR IS NEED TO MAKE IT DEVELOPED I WILL AS THE MONEY IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

Carlos Ventures is running a computer hardware store. Many websites like his are hardly warm and welcoming. They mean what they say they do. Hardware sales and nothing else.

To me, website looks okay. The problem I've got is the all caps and highlighting on white background. I had to squint to read through the text.

@ Carlos Ventures,

Thanks for the prompt reply. I admire that you are a student doing your own business to make ends meet.

I am not a student, but a book publicist with Bernard Books Publishing http://bernardbooks.com What we are looking for is a good and convenient avenue to make our recent novel (FEDDIE GIRL by Nona David) available to the Nigerian public.

Since Amazon and E-bay will not accept payment from Nigeria and ship likewise, we need an intermediary company through which Nigerians at home can purchase and receive the title.

Thanks!

@ Poster and All,

I know of a company here in the UK that helps you complete your orders online (only for Nigerians and for payment restriction reasons). All you have to do is go to eBay,amazon or any of this online stores once you have seen what you like. the buzz them 24/7 on the phone, skype , yahoo messenger or by email.But if you want to bid straight away you'll be better off getting them on the phone or on skype.yahoo messenger.

They will walk through the bidding with you and get you the order/item. But you will have to make a payment into their Lagos business Account before they pay for your item (You pay the exact equiv. in naira) They ship items to Lagos every Friday so all orders concluded between Sunday - Thursday get to Lagos every week.
