E-commerce giant, Konga, has announced the celebration of its fourth year anniversary.

The e-commerce giant was founded in 2012 and started purely as an online retailer selling just baby and beauty products. Its growth was rapid as it rose 11X in its first year of operations and 4.5X in the second year.

In 2014, Konga opened its Seller HQ - Konga’s Marketplace Platform, which allows business owners to display and sell their items on Konga. Seller HQ’s growth has been rapid with "marketplace" derived orders now accounting for over 70% of sales. Over 30,000 sellers are registered and trading on the site today, Konga says.

Konga has also launched several innovations like the Konga Mobile App, Seller HQ platform, online payment solution KongaPay, which allows for payment online and offline anytime with its unique me-commerce feature and the recently launched Konga EZ Web Progressive App.

In the four years since it had been launched, Konga has received several awards like “Online retailer of the year” and ”Most Emerging brand” Marketing World awards (2013), “Best company in Tech businesses category” Creative Entrepreneurs of Nigeria awards (2013), “West African entrepreneur of the year” CNBC Africa (2013), “Most Innovative and Impactful retail brand” by Lagos Chamber of Commerce Industry awards (2014), “Online Retailer of the Year” and for “Marketing Campaign of the Year” for the Found on Konga Campaign by the Marketing World Awards (2015), “Best Ecommerce Logistics Company” (2016) by CBN, and “Best Place to Work for Millennials” (2016) by Great Place.

“Regardless of the achievements and milestones we have reached in our four years of innovation, we will not stop innovating because we are yet to reach the climax of the Konga story,” said Mayowa Adebayo, Director of Marketing and Customer Experience at Konga.

To celebrate its fourth anniversary, Konga has launched a unique sale around the number “4”. The sale will be for four hours, for four days, featuring four discounted items on each day of the sale.
