Kalumbilo Imports & Commission Agency Co., Ltd is a premier company in Tanzania based on helping those who wish but could not able to buy and import online. This may be due to the fact that there is a low percentage of Internet access even computer illiteracy to some of the Tanzania natives.
Not only that, but also the situation goes hand in hand with the increased reports of internet fraudulent. People lose a lot of money in a single click, yes! Online purchasing is not a "trial and error" play; it needs awareness and high degree of a particular competence. People have been irritated their ears from hearing something like buying online; so they dare to generalize as no money safety on that kind of business and therefore decide to keep a distance from eCommerce.
When people flee from online purchasing, that is our starting point. Kalumbilo Imports & Commission Agency Co., Ltd is a private Company, registered by the Tanzania government (BRELA) and given a Certificate of Incorporation No: 116636 to offer public services on internet based business (eCommerce/eBusiness). We are here to act as your intermediary and bring sophisticated deals between online buyers and sellers. While based on commission agency, we determined to reach and help a major clientele of Tanzania who will find our help necessary. Use us to purchase in your stead and you'll pay a very minimal commission.
The concept of Trade and Globalization
Globalization is not something new. For a long past, people have been trading in barter trade followed by currency trade thereafter. People have been trading goods and traveled across great distances beyond their country boarders and continents. Historically, trade routes such as Silk Road which connected Europe and China, Triangular trade, Trans-Saharan trade and others stands as examples to justify the age of international trade and interactions (globalization).
The new era of globalization go further as Industrial Revolution in Europe on the dawn of 19th century which triggered the need for raw material and areas for markets of finished products from those European then mushrooming industries. Those needs accompanied by maritime technology led to tremendous moving forward of globalization. Nowadays our globe became a single unit whereby individuals and companies are able to export and import raw and finished materials easier and faster than before.
The internet paved the way for sellers to reach their customers around the world as well as buyers able to purchase globally in the same way as one can fly and spend a lot of money and time, which is what is so called E-Commerce today. Through internet you can access to larger markets, you can sell more goods and make a lot of money from buying air tickets to and fro a distant country or continent.
Take a look where you are, your trouser made in China, your shoes in Thailand and your phone in USA. A simple question to ask is, did you buy it when you were in USA? Probably and mostly the answer is no!....you bought somewhere in Tanzania, right? And you do not know even who is imported it and how much profit he made. Do you ever know that the product imported from other country and you buy down the street could be passed more than five sellers and each thriving for profit? I am sure the answer is the same as above.
Another example, a big importer in Dar es Salaam used to buy a 20ft container of shoes from China for the cost of Tsh. 2,000/= per pair then sold to wholesalers at Kariakoo whereby they sell to other wholesalers and retailers at fourth stage. You buy those shoes as an end user for Tsh. 15,000/= from the retailer and you go back satisfied as you bought in cheap price, that is how it goes.
To buy a product down the street or local markets is very simplified way but in other hand to buy direct from China or elsewhere and import in Tanzania is possible. The shoe sold for Tsh 15,000/= at Kariakoo, you may buy yourself in China online and sent to where you’re for just 5,000/= Tsh. This is possible through purchasing from online market places.
People now are able to make shopping in Canada, UK, Thailand etc, whilst they are living in Tanzania and going on with their regular day jobs and items sent to them at minimal costs yet quality as they chosen.
Another example, the used Toyota Noah in Dar es salaam showrooms is available for roughly price of 16 millions. The same car you can buy yourself direct from Japan for only 13.5 millions total costs. You can save money by sacrificing time to wait and you can save time by sacrificing money, so it depends on your priority.
E-Commerce makes easier, faster and cheaper for business to communicate with sellers as well as buyers by using emails and online ordering systems. Communications and transactions can be conducted almost instantly between sellers and buyers situated anywhere in world.
Try it today for yourself, but if you find it harder, give us the task because we are here to help you at the stage you can not do by yourself.
Thank you very much and you are so welcomed!
