A new shopping portal, onlineshopping.co.ke, is promising free shipping and cash on delivery payment.
The new site offers a range of goods – from electronics, mobile phones and home appliances to perfume.

“The goods onlineshopping.co.ke is selling is totally brand new products with guarantee.”
Currently, this online shop has presence in the wider Nairobi region and plans are underway to spread countrywide to enable all customers access to these locally sourced items. The company boasts services like Cash on Delivery, a 48-hour replacement policy, free shipping and a dedicated team to ensure items are delivered on time and in perfect condition.
