This is closely connected to the internet adoption and usage which continues to rise at an exponential rate. We have studied why some consumers use the Internet. Some, to do shopping, many others prefer to get the information of a product online and use in shopping offline”, said Sefik Bagdadioglu Managing Director Kaymu Nigeria.
