Did you know you can shop from eBay and Amazon and pay through M-Pesa Pay? As a country, our e-commerce industry is still at an infant stage compared to some countries like Nigeria, Europe, and America. This means that you could search for a product in Jumia or KiliMall and fail to find it.
But when you search for the same product on Amazon, Alibaba, eBay and other international online shops, you even find several other options. As such, many Kenyans have wanted to shop on Amazon or eBay but since they are unsure of the process, they hold back from buying on those sites.
The motif of this article is to show you that it is indeed very simple and straightforward. Buying from Amazon and eBay is no different from buying from jumia, only that some more information will be needed.
What’s more, you can even pay for the products you have bought through M-Pesa Pay. Below are two options of step by step guides on how you can buy from Amazon and eBay and pay using M-Pesa.
