Kaymu, Uganda’s #1 online shopping community for buying and selling has been around for almost a year now. Serving as an online marketplace for buyers and sellers in the country, the number one question about it today is “how exactly does it work?”
To Buy: A customer has to simply sign up to order any item from the categories Kaymu has to offer, from fashion to electronics to home decor. Signing up here is free and the contact and residential details customers provide are used to make confirmations of orders and also act as delivery addresses.

Signing up also provides buyers with a purchase log where they can view all previous and current orders and their statuses. The customer only pays on delivery (cash on delivery) once he has received his product(s). This is one of the reasons why buying on Kaymu is 100% safe. Moreover, there is no need to leave the office or home to do one’s shopping: you browse throughout the different categories, choose the product you like to buy and wait for our delivery service to bring it to your doorstep.
To Sell: A seller can upload his items for sale on Kaymu at no cost- including pictures- using the guidelines here.These items have to be very descriptive for the customer to know exactly what they are about to spend their money on, reducing the chances of a returned purchase from the buyer to the seller. To start selling, create your product post here.
Selling on Kaymu gives merchants an opportunity to increase their target market, thereby increasing their profits. The delivery service that Kaymu uses also increases the speed at which these items reach the buyer, so the seller can reap his rewards in a shorter time.
Kaymu can be used via the website www.kaymu.co.ug or via the Kaymu app which can be downloaded here.
