DHL expands online shopping to Namibia

11 September 2019 | Business

After introducing the DHL Africa eShop app in April this year, it is now also available in Namibia.
Since its launch, the app has seen its user-base grow rapidly and it has already been rolled out to 20 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa.
According to DHL Express, the innovative mobile and desktop platform is now available in 14 additional countries across the region, which include Namibia, Angola, Ethiopia, Lesotho and Mali to name a few.
The DHL Africa eShop app offers consumers unprecedented access to international retailers on an easy-to-use platform, with great convenience and speed. It also enables many global brands to connect with the African market. Now you can shop directly from over 200 US- and UK-based online retailers, with purchases delivered to your door by DHL Express.
According to CEO of DHL Express Sub Saharan Africa Hennie Heymans, the user uptake on the DHL Africa eShop app has been remarkable. “While Africa’s ecommerce market is still lagging behind the rest of the globe in terms of annual turnover, it may well make significant strides to catching up in the near future,” he added.
A report by Statista reveals that e-commerce in Africa was valued at U$16.5 billion in 2017. It’s predicted that this value could potentially reach U$75 billion by 2025.
To celebrate the launch of the app, DHL is offering a promotion of U$20 flat rate shipping for up to five items from over 100 US/UK selected sites to all DHL Africa eShop countries. The promotion is limited to clothing and accessory items, and buyers need to use coupon code CELEBRATE when completing their order.
