Who are we and what do we stand for?
Our story 📖
Launched in 2018 by Claude as a side-project to help a community needs abroad, he understood quickly that there was room for opportunity for distribution through the web for the African culture. With an outsourced MVP, they saw the first orders coming and they decided to dedicate themselves full time to this growing project.
After several improvment, a move to Douala, the coming of the first team members, and a strong partnership with DHL, Afrosmartshop became one of the African eCommerce exporter.
In 2022, rich in these years of experience in direct contact with sellers and as entrepreneurs serving entrepreneurs, we understood that the challenges of the sellers were deeper than those solved by the marketplace, Afrosmartshop. The sellers faced specific African issues such as the lack of visibility globally, the difficulty of shipping products worldwide from Africa, the complexity of payments between international and local ways. To resolve these needs that exceed the perimeter of a simple marketplace, he decided to expand to a new platform.
AfrosmartshopCM, powered by Afrosmartshop, is the all-in-one solution for sellers of products « Made of Africa » (fashion, art, food, or beauty…) to sell from anywhere, ship worldwide, get paid faster on international or local African payment methods, and manage easily their businesses.
