About Kaymu

Pays Date

Kaymu is the #1 online shopping community in Nigeria. We connect buyers and sellers, but do not have any inventory of our own.

Our founders believe that the internet can break economic barriers and change the way business is done. Therefore, we want to bring e-commerce into the lives of Africans, to empower local entrepreneurs by helping them take their business online and to make shopping easy and accessible to everyone.

Kaymu was launched in December 2012 by Africa Internet Group, the e-commerce pioneer in Africa and it is backed by Millicom, MTN, RI and Ooredoo. The company has spread to over 32 countries across Africa, Asia and Europe today with new countries being launched every month.
