Efritin.com, a new online classified platform, has launched a classified advert marketplace for buyers and sellers to exchange used items.
The Chief Operating Officer, Saltside Technologies, Efritin.com parent company, Mr. Babak Tighnavard, said while Saltside Technologies was founded to build leading online marketplaces in underserved markets, creating sustainable value for the community, Efritin.com has over 50 various items that Nigerians can buy or sell.
“From mobile phones and home appliances to property and car, Efritin.com aims at disrupting how classifieds are done in Nigeria by addressing a key issue of trust and offering the additional convenience of delivery. The tenacious and growing team is poised to make Efritin.com the number 1 online marketplace for used goods in Nigeria, where they can find great deals on almost everything,” he said.
A Manager of the company, Mr. Zakaria Hersi, said part of their success story of doing things locally in each market gave rise to the name ‘Efritin.com’ meaning ‘Everything’ in pidgin language.
He further said Efritin is focused on providing a safer platform for buyers and sellers to meet and exchange their items. It focuses on used items because of the trading culture of Nigerians, the high volume of offline marketplaces and the large economy around unused goods.
He added that Efritin’s team places high value on offering a safer platform, adding that it is for this that sellers must verified on their platform within 48 hours of posting an advert before it goes live.
