By Modupe Gbadeyanka

A tech company in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State known as Classified Market Limited has launched a safe and secure platform for Nigerians to buy and sell their products and services with ease online.

A statement issued by the firm disclosed that its platform offers new users the opportunity buy and sell in over 100+ categories ranging from cars and vehicles to real estate and job vacancy listing.

According to Classified Market Limited, with its integrated advanced search system, users can easily search for any products or service they want in any specific location and category within a few seconds.

“cmc.ng is our way of making the process of buying and selling seamless for Nigerians. The platform ensures that anyone from the comfort of his or her bedroom anywhere in Nigeria can sell off old and new items with ease.

“For local businesses, it offers a new front through which they can advertise and sell their products/services to a much wider audience.

“The best part of it is that buyers can even haggle the price of items with a seller on the platform using the price bidding tool and reach an agreement even before any physical meeting. This makes the process of buying and selling a very stress-free engagement for all parties involved,” General Manager of Classified Market Center Limited, Ms Unwana Akpan, was quoted as saying in the statement made available to Business Post on Friday.

She added that the social registration feature on the Classified Market Center site makes it easy for anyone to sign up easily with the click of a single button using his/her social media profile (Facebook, Google+ or Twitter).

This, Ms Akpan noted, creates a connection between the platform and the user’s social media account such that once the seller advertises a new product, such seller can easily share the advert with friends on social media.

In order to ensure the security of buyers and sellers in the marketplace, there is a “report a seller” feature which anyone can use to report any suspicious or fraudulent activity on the platform to the admin so that necessary actions can immediately be taken to protect users.

In addition to the above-mentioned, the Classified Market Center team said it offers a 24/7 support to buyers and sellers so that all complains and inquiries are handled speedily and no one is confused about any feature on the marketplace.

The company said individuals and local business owners interested in buying and selling online with ease can logon to www.cmc.ng to submit their products/services for free, with approval of new listing done within 30 minutes and the seller receiving an alert immediately.
