A brain­work of a set of young Nige­rian en­trepreneurs out to rev­o­lu­tionise the ex­pe­ri­ence of con­sumers kicked off in a grand style last Fri­day with the Black Fri­day Deal, where ev­ery­one had an op­por­tu­nity to buy any­thing they wanted at the most af­ford­able prices. YANDI, ac­cord­ing to the ini­tia­tors rep­re­sents the phrase Yo

u & I (Y-AND-I), with the theme “con­nect­ing U and I to ev­ery­thing”. The re­cently launched plat­form is the first on­line plat­form in Nige­ria that opens a larger in­ven­tory op­tion to both buy­ers and sell­ers. Speak­ing on the mis­sion of YANDI in the e-com­merce space in Nige­ria, Mr. Scott C. said cus­tomers are set to en­joy a whole new ex­pe­ri­ence in shop­ping.

“We pro­vide on­line store spa­ces for dif­fer­ent stores, brands, com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­als, giv­ing the buy­ers a large mar­ket to se­lect from and op­por­tu­ni­ties to pick out the most fa­vor­able place of pur­chase for their de­sired goods or ser­vices,” he noted.

YANDI, Eneje said has a pay­ment sys­tem that as­sures one of the safest on­line shop­ping pay­ment meth­ods “which gives you full con­trol of how you pay for your goods or ser­vices from your com­fort zone and with ease.”

He listed out some of the beau­ti­ful and amaz­ing ser­vices on of­fer at YANDI that cut across ev­ery­one to in­clude ‘The Buy Naija Deal’, ‘The Trans­form­ers Deal’, ‘YANDENTITY Deal’, which give cus­tomers a plat­form to cus­tom­ize and de­sign any prod­uct they wish to buy as well as the ‘Bid­ding Deal’. Another unique in­tro­duc­tion is ‘The YANDI Used Plat­form’ - that sup­port used prod­uct and con­nect buy­ers with sell­ers di­rectly. On his part, Mr. Eddy G. Udom ex­plained why YANDI should be the first point of call for cus­tomers go­ing for­ward. “Here at YANDI, the cus­tomers mean ev­ery­thing to us, and we make it our duty to truly con­nect ev­ery­thing to ev­ery­one.

Thus, you are as­sured of an on­line shop-
