A new online marketplace, www.suubula.com, which last week announced the launch of its operations in Kampala, Uganda to facilitate trade and delivery of discounted products and services, has shortened time of deliveries from one hour to 45 minutes upon receipt of orders.
Suubula.com this Thursday announced a partnership with Speedaf, the leading diversified integrated logistics solution provider between China and Africa, to expedite delivery of orders at a flat fee of only Shs 4,000 anywhere in Kampala.
Users will pay for this service using MTN and Airtel Mobile money platforms.
This means you can order for grain, fast foods, agricultural produce, poultry and home use essentials (toilet paper, water, beverages, gadgets) among others which will be delivered right at your doorstep by professional couriers at Speedaf.
This comes at a time government is enforcing a partial lockdown over Coronavirus – with many people stuck at home and unable to visit stores for essential supplies.
Suubula.com also offers unlimited space to traders, farmers, entrepreneurs, ICT developers, manufacturers and real estate dealers to sell their products online and reach out to millions of potential buyers.
“All one needs is to identify a product on the website, put in the cart and pay for it. We’ll then call them to make arrangements for swift delivery,” said Suubula Chief Executive Officer, Mr Camble Hope.
“Those who are stuck with goods in the gardens and stores because of the Coronavirus lockdown should also use MTN and Airtel mobile money or credit cards to advertise them on Suubula.com at a cost of only Shs 9,000 per month so that the site markets and delivers these products to potential buyers,” he added.
The website is also creating “Home Jobs” especially for those who are at home but can use their skills to bake birthday cakes; produce table mats; prepare rollex, coffee or yoghurt etc from their homes.
“You’ll be able to list your product/skills under “Home Jobs” on Suubula.com at a free cost and then attract potential buyers. If an order for your product is made, Suubula.com and Speedaf will pick it for delivery. Being grounded at home doesn’t mean you can’t earn,” said Mr King Lory, the Commercial and Systems Manager at Suubula.com headquarters in Kiwatule, Kampala.
“If you are unable to afford ‘display space’ at a city mall for a gift shop, you can have your products viewed by millions of people on Suubula.com. We are changing the way we do business by facilitating marketing of products and services and reaching out to millions of customers online. Suubula.com exists to support businesses sell products and skills in the local market and elsewhere in the world.”
Suubula.com also is facilitating trade in bulk commodities, allowing wholesalers obtain heavily discounted goods for local, regional and international markets.
Incorporated at Uganda Registration Bureau Services (URSB) in Kampala, Suubula.com facilitates existing businesses to list their shops, salons, bakeries, bars, restaurants, recreational facilities, gyms, real estate, etc on the website at an affordable fee.
“While your chia seeds and fruits go bad in the granary or garden, a businessman in Dubai is struggling to obtain a reliable supplier of the same,” said Camble, emphasising, “Suubula will address this bottleneck by linking producers and potential buyers online.”
