to buy aliexpress goods taobao sell 1688 and how nigeria

How to buy goods from Aliexpress, 1688, Taobao and sell in Nigeria
You may or may not have seen articles or heard from people about mini-importation business. Well it is very real and if well done, you stand a chance of becoming a millionaire in a short time. It is called mini-importation because you can order a small quantity of goods from ecommerce websites abroad and bring them into your own country for use or sale.
To me, it is the best business you can find online because it combines both physical and digital sales of goods. There are many ecommerce websites online in different countries such as Amazon and eBay in the US, Alibaba, Aliexpress, Taobao, etc in China.

For a successful mini-importation business in Nigeria, I will advise you to stick to Chinese sites. This is because they have a very large variety of almost all types of goods at very decent prices coupled with free delivery which will enable you make up to 300% – 500% profit on sales. You might think this is a lie but just check for yourself at the following sites and see how cheap many things we buy here really are. which is a subsidiary of is the most popular among them all but you can find cheaper goods on the other Chinese sites I listed. The problem with the other sites is that they are written in Chinese so you need Google Chrome browser in order to translate them to English language. Some of them do not ship outside China so you have to get an address in China or use shipping agents.

You can get very good products such as necklaces, earrings, watches, power banks, phone accessories, computer accessories and many more for a very decent price. It is a very nice business because with any amount of capital you can start. However, I advise that you do not purchase electronic devices from Chinese sites if you want them to last, if you want to do that, make sure you buy from a trusted supplier with a lot of positive reviews.

The sites are simple to navigate, they are similar to Konga and Jumia but ‘NO’ they do not offer ‘pay on delivery’. Lol. I know a lot of Nigerians love that but you are well protected because most of the websites do not pay a supplier until you have confirmed receipt of your goods and seen that they are in good condition or until when the specified time for confirmation elapses (usually 60 days). If you receive products which are not what you ordered for or are defective, you can open a dispute and get a full or partial refund.

The goods usually arrive Nigeria at approximately 4 weeks from purchase but it could also come before then or after up to a maximum of 60 days (2 months). The goods are usually sent to a post office nearest to the address you used and you may or may not be called to pick it up, however once it is 3 weeks from purchase you should check at the post office closest to your selected address to see if it has arrived and continue checking till it arrives.

Tracking numbers are provided for goods by the sellers, Registered mail i.e. those whose tracking number starts with ‘R’ can be tracked locally using NIPOST at while unregistered mail can only be tracked using the website the seller provides which is usually

Once your goods arrive Nigeria, you can sell them in a shop, by yourself (carrying it about) or on other ecommerce sites like Konga and Jumia (will be discussed subsequently), you can also create your own ecommerce site and sell your products there.
