BuyNaija.NG is an online platform for buying and selling of Made-in-Nigeria goods and services. It is an online directory where Nigerian made products and services can be listed.
It is the biggest catalog and database of Nigerian made products and services.
If you are a manufacturer or seller of made in Nigeria goods and services, you are invited to post and list as many of your best products or services as possible.
Posting your product advert is free. The only condition is that the product or service must be made, assembled or provided in Nigeria.
BuyNaija.ng is a non-profit Corporate Social Responsibility project built to support and increase the patronage and visibility of Nigerian made goods and services in a sustainable way. It is a partnership project between its creator Juda Ellis and programmers from NG44.
It was inspired by the hashtags #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira and #MadeInNigeria

To build a self sustaining online platform for the safe buying, selling and exporting of quality made-in-Nigeria goods and services.
BuyNaija.ng is being developed in four phases. The ultimate goal is to enable easy sales and export of Nigerian products via the platform. Right now we are in Phase one.
Phase One: Create massive awareness and gather product listings, improve usage and grow user base to critical mass. Target 25,000 products.
Phase Two: Improve product quality control and fraud detection systems. Grow to 200,000 Products.
Phase Three: Develop the ability for customers to order for products directly from the website, pay online and have it delivered to their doorstep. Grow to 1,000,000 Products. Setup Logistics division to handle delivery and drop off services on behalf of sellers.
Phase Four: Develop capabilities for exporting and shipping outside Nigeria to enable worldwide sales.
Story of BuyNaija.ng - How it All Started
The platform is owned by a group of young Nigerian programmers from Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria.
The original idea was conceived by Juda Ellis who is a big proponent of buying and exporting Nigerian products as a way of growing the economy. One day while checking updates on twitter for the hashtags #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira and #MadeInNigeria, he noticed that products he had seen days earlier were nowhere to be found (buried under an endless stream of tweets and updates); while some other products only showed the pictures but there was no information on how to contact the seller. He recognised that this would prove to be a drawback to the "buy Naija" movement and he knew that he had to do something about it.
After pondering on possible solutions, it occurred to him that having a central online location like a web directory or database where made-in-Nigeria products can always be found by interested buyers was the way to go.
So he approached NG44 Consulting to help him build it. NG44 took up the task as a Corporate Social Responsibility project and its engineers and interns have been building the platform in conjunction with Juda Ellis.
With technical know-how and seed funding provided by NG44 to get things moving, the project has been growing faster than expected and now requires more funding to keep it growing. So please donate. Click here for how to donate to support us.
