Social eCommerce startup makes you an entrepreneur upon sign up
Everr wanted to buy a product but couldn't find it? You asked around from family and friends and they still didn't know where to get it? You changed course and headed to a full blown market but still got back empty? Then finally, you visited a really popular eCommerce website with the certainty of getting it and still couldn't find it?! This situation gets awkward and annoying because you keep seeing a lot of people moving around with what you wanted to buy. 

Finally, you resulted to Twitter and Facebook to ask, and you got a few replies with negative results. There you have it, you're stuck. You decide no one you know has what you want or it doesn't exist. We face this challenges everyday, and wish we had an online environment where we could ask for a product if we couldn't just get it there or any where else. That's what's new in Nigeria. It's is a social eCommerce platform that connects buyers and sellers in an environment where they can own a personalized free online social store, post products, post shop questions, connect to other stores, directly message a merchant, watch product videos, view product search trends, like products, search based on interests, and close transactions while making weigh higher sales. It brings your existing products closer to your customers, friends and the world.

Opiid is open for everyone between the ages of 13 and above, and is geared towards reducing unemployment and poverty by changing the direction of the average African towards an environment where they can make sales and purchases faster and cheaper at highly competitive prices than they would in a physical shop. Opiid is the future of eCommerce, it's here to stay, and moves to change the lives and shopping experiences of everyone that makes a first contact.
So, what are you waiting for?! Sign Up already!! It's easy and it's free!!!

"...This situation gets awkward and annoying because you keep seeing a lot of people moving around with what you wanted to buy..."

So, why not ask the people where they got theirs from instead?
this one as i understand, makes you own platforms like, etc, for free. So, it is actually bringing all and more on the same place. Good idea.    10.Feb.2014
