Make Money : Start Laptop Importation Business In Nigeria

Selling of laptop is a hot business in Nigeria market. People no longer wish to be using Desktops due to its size compared to a laptop. The demand for laptop is increasing in Nigeria due to the growth of ICT in the country. People are willing to pay N80,000-N100,000 as price on laptop. There are market out there where you can get refurbished and cheaper laptop for N30,000-N50,000.

Lot of young youths in Nigeria are making millions from importing and selling laptop computers. All you have to do to tap from this hot market is to order laptops from online stores like eBay, Amazon and others and ship them to Nigeria, then sell it. For example, if you order a laptop from an online store for N60,000 and sell it at a price of N68,000-N70,000, then you have made a profit of N8,000-N10,000 on one deal. But before you start this business, you will need to put some things into consideration.

  • Before you start importing laptop, you will need to source out some reliable stores where you can buy laptops from
  • You will need a US, Chinese address
  • You will need to decide how the laptop will be shipped to you
  • You will need to decide what brands of laptops you want to be dealing with. For example, a refurbished or new brands.

After considering the above facts, having a little startup capital may not help in this kind of business. Before you can start the importation of laptops in Nigeria, you must have up to N400,000-N1m. With that amount, you can start with 6-15 laptops depending on the type of brands you wish to engage in. With this business, you can be pocketing N50,000 or more monthly depending on your commitment.

You must always look for better and reliable stores online; you must also take advantage of promos and discounts. This business requires a lot of research before you venture into it. After purchasing any laptop, you will have to consider the “cost price from the store”, “shipping cost” & “Nigeria market value” before you decide your selling price.

Finally, I will like to share how some importers get there laptops shipped to Nigeria. To be sincere, most online stores doesn’t ship to Nigeria from USA directly. In case you get a store online that sells laptop at cheaper rates and later finds out that you can’t ship the laptop to Nigeria, RELAX, there are many ways by which you can get your laptops here in Nigeria even if your products can’t be shipped directly to Nigeria. But the best way it can be done is through mail forwarding service. With mail forwarding service, you will have a virtual US address that you will use to receive your goods, and after, the goods will be re-ship to Nigeria. One of the best website that offers this kind of service is MyUS. You will pay a fee of $60 annually if you want to use MyUS services, after that you will be given a US address where you can direct your product from the store and later re-ship it to your address in Nigeria through DHL or Fedex.
