Copia rolls out rural ecommerce service

Monday 15 April 2019 | 01:09 PM CET

Kenya-based startup Copia has rolled out an ecommerce service that allows people living in urban areas to buy goods and have them delivered to their friends and family upcountry.

The service enables rural households to access goods that would otherwise be difficult to obtain without travelling to a major city. Pre-paid orders take on average two to three days to be fulfilled.

At checkout, a customer needs to do is provide the phone number of a friend or family member upcountry. Copia locates the recipient, identifies the nearest delivery centre agent, and delivers the goods.

Earlier in January 2019, the company Copia secured USD 2 million in funding from Goodwell Investments.
