Guess you’ve been looking forward to this finally it’s here! So take ia chill pill if you’ve just been scanning this post I’d suggest you sit still concentrate and read this ways to make money as an undergraduate.
1. Import And Sell On Jumia Or Konga.
Importation is the process of bringing in a comodity into a particular country from another country.
In Nigeria so many comodity are needs most especially since Nigeria is not a first country like United States , United Kingdom, France, China and the host of others.
So as a student in Nigeria you can import from these countries most especially China and Singapore and sell on sites like Jumia and Konga.
How’s that even possible seems in possible right? Yea but it is possible first let’s look at the people selling on either Jumia or Konga.
They are normal people who either has a shop or warehouse they are either importes or people that create a product.
But we ain’t creating any product we importing say it we importing. Yea that was nice so you buy products from China through sites like Alibaba, Dhgate and the host of others which we would discuss later on here.
So after buying comodity in demand you then register to become a seller on either of the sites after getting approved then you would have to upload a good picture or graphics of the item and post with price.
2. Selling Friends Used Phone On Jiji, olx.
Selling friends phone with their consent I didn’t mean stealling the phone.
There are times when friends do meet me to help them sell their used phones because I had this thing with phone, then I would contact buyers locally and go to the hood to sell the phones.
But now when I got to use these classified sites I began posting pictures of the phone with price and fill in my contacts and bang ! bang! Buyers are calling and am hitting the deal and making more profits better than I do get when I sell locally.
But in any way your not used to selling phones there are other things you could sell on these classified sites too.
3. Renting Out Your Stuff.
We all those friends that want to go to a party or wants to hook up with a hot chick and wants to look so good and expensive and they be like bla bla bla ! Can you lend me your wrist watch, or can I lend your shoes .haha some would even lend underwear 😂😂😂😂just kidding.
So you can be like me that buys expensive stuff like Patek wristwatch and the person that wants to borrow it would drop a coleteral similar to price with the watch or even higher like phones or laptop and when the product is returned the items would be returned. Am not dumb so the person’s pays full even before collecting the stuff.
Smart idea right don’t rush into it now , have a plan and good fancy stuff before you begin and if you need guidance you can email me with my email in profile.
