Online shopping in Cameroon at barely 2% growth due to high internet rates

Barely 2% of Cameroonians make purchases online. This was revealed at the opening of the 2nd Afrikebiz Fair. The event gathers e-commerce companies based in Africa to look at ways and means of supporting the development of e-commerce in Africa.

According to official figures, the low rate is due to the fact that hardly 400,000 Cameroonians have access to the internet out of a population of over 20 million inhabitants.

The costs in Cameroon are noticeably higher than in countries of comparable level such as Cote d’Ivoire or Senegal.
