WHAT WE DO
The global economy is missing out on a massive, untapped, high growth market opportunity. There are 750M middle and low-income African consumers who spend $680B per year. Formal retail and e-commerce cannot reach the vast majority of them but Copia's mobile commerce platform can.
The advent of mobile technologies is the game changer. Copia was built to bring regular Africans quality goods at low prices, regardless of their income level, access to technology or location. In this way, mobile commerce becomes Africa’s next big leapfrog solution.
Leveraging a network of digitally-enabled, locally based agents who operate as ordering and delivery points, Copia meets our consumers where they are – online or offline. Mobile money enables even the unbanked to transact. Our internally managed, tech-enabled logistics operation achieves best in class delivery costs despite poor road infrastructure and no addresses.
Copia transforms middle to low income Africans into empowered global consumers.
WHAT COPIA SELLS
WHAT COPIA SELLS
Copia serves over 1 million customers in rural areas.
Our customers live in areas where access to supermarkets and other formal retail is not available. The global economy has passed them by and seeks its fortune elsewhere. We know different. Through Copia, our customers not only get what they need delivered, they learn about new products and become connected to the global economy.
Copia makes life easier for our customers by providing:
Copia empowers over 22,000 Agents in Kenya.
Our Agents are business people operating small retail outlets, hair salons, tailors and kiosk stores in the communities where we work. They recruit Copia customers, advise them on available products and promotions, place orders, pay and receive deliveries. All this with no financial outlay or inventory requirement upfront. And they receive a commission on all products sold. That increase in income, averaging 37%, often takes them from struggling to financially secure.
