3 popular Nigerian online stores that were not built from scratch


In an earlier post, we talked about Content Management Systems (CMS) and whether or not you should use them. Today, I’d walk you through a few popular Nigerian online stores that use these CMS platforms.

Remember that as a business, your priority is to find a solution that works best for you. Not what everyone else says is OK, but what suites you the most.

What I’d like to show you in this post, is that CMS platforms can be as dynamic and powerful as any website built from scratch. In some cases, even better. Lets deep dive into the list.


konga CMS

The Konga platform uses a highly customized version of Magento, an ecommerce CMS platform.

Magento is a multi award winning platform that boasts some really impressive features. They recently acquired RJMetrics to introduce cloud based analytics right inside the software. Magento claims to have over $50 Billion in annual transactions.



Payporte is another popular ecommerce website that runs on the Magento platform.




Yudala.com is yet another ecommerce website using the Magento platform.

Although the general trend that you see here is that Magento is used by all three of them, there are many more online shopping CMS platforms out there.
