Coming back from overseas? Asides the free gifts you would be bringing home for your loved ones, it would be nice to travel back with a few goods to convert to cash. If you are based in a country where things are affordable and of course have access to duty free items, you can easily purchase some ‘fast-moving goods’ to sell when you arrive Nigeria. Just something to reimburse a part of the money you spent on flight tickets.
These are actually considered because these items are the most sought-after products in Nigeria.
- Mobile Phone and Accessories
Remember those days of London-used Blackberry phones? A lot of Nigerians made lots of money from importing phones. New or used, you can buy phones and accessories from abroad and resell in Nigeria. Although new phones are safer to sell, more people would go for old phones especially the trendy/latest versions which they can’t afford the brand new.
- Hair Wigs & Extensions
Nigerian ladies love gorgeous hair, and human hair extensions are a fast selling commodity in Nigeria. So if you are thinking of what to sell, purchase good quality hair extensions within your budget and resell in Nigeria at affordable prices.
- Clothes, Bags & Shoes
You’d be very surprised at how much Nigerians buy clothes, shoes and other accessories. If you are targeting the elite customers or big spenders, you can buy brand new clothes, shoes and bags from countries like Dubai, and USA. You can also add quality bedding and underwear to your market list.
The reason why the textile business is so popular in Africa is because Nigerians are proud socialites and fashionable people. Nigerians love to wear unique and rare fabrics to weddings, funerals, and other occasions so bringing home foreign fabrics that are not available in Nigerian markets will attract lots of patronage.
You can come back with some very nice toys like dolls, cars, play tools and story books that will appeal to the younger generations whose parents won’t mind buying for. Therefore, it won’t be a waste of resources if you invest on toys. Have a safe trip back to Nigeria!
