    Online business in Nigeria is quite new to most of us but it is a fast growing market. Knowing the type of internet business to engage in Nigeria is very important since it is yet a grey area.

    One of the best online business opportunities in Nigeria is eCommerce, buying and selling of good and services online. Because of the advent of substandard goods in the Nigerian market, internet business that involves buying, selling and delivery of goods such as electronics, clothes, shoes, etc will thrive in Nigeria.

    If you stick to good products and find an effective way to deliver your goods to your customers, you have made it in life!

    This is because most Nigerians cannot differentiate between what is original and what is fake. So get them an original goods and delivering it to them will keep one in business for like ever!

    There are lots of businesses to do in Nigeria but I think this is good for starters.
