Malian Online Marketplace Gets Boost to Scale across West Africa

Sodishop is a B2C and B2B marketplace that sells and delivers almost all categories of products, has expanded across several markets in West Africa and shows no sign of slowing down. Sodishop allows customers to easily buy goods across numerous categories, including clothing, electronics and sports equipment, and have them delivered within 24 hours in urban areas and 72 hours in rural areas. Beyond the products available on the African market, through Sodishop Express, customers can have products delivered from Europe, Asia and America within seven days. And with Sodifood, Sodishop enables households to access fresh, well-treated and packaged products. The marketplace was recently selected to take part in the ASIP accelerator run by Startupbootcamp AfriTech, was launched in 2019, in response to the fact African consumers for the most part did not have the possibility of accessing catalogues of local online stores. Self-funded thus far, the startup has taken on a small amount of capital as part of the ASIP programme, but has been doing just fine without investment. It monetises via commissions and delivery charges.
