Shopping online has taken Cameroon by storm. The ease of ordering online, choosing a preferred alternative mode of payment and the products being availed to a location of delivery within the shortest possible time has changed the outlook of commerce in Cameroon for businesses.
Companies with online platforms or those partnering with online shopping sites have multiplied their business activity significantly, as they outcompete their counterparts who choose to be rigid in their ways.
Initially, the people did not understand how the payments work, often forcing the locals to pay using card systems that were unfavourable therefore alienating the majority from the cause yet a business that does its homework knows that Cameroon is predominantly a mobile money economy.
