Heroshe is the brainchild of Nigerian-born Esther, who moved to the US in 2005 after graduating from Babcock University, has since set out on a mission to ease the experience of Nigerians hoping to shop US stores from the convenience of their offices or homes.
“Heroshe is the most reliable way to shop in the US from Nigeria. We understand the payment and international shipping barriers that make it difficult to shop the US from Nigeria. We bridge this gap by helping you shop from US online and physical stores and ship to you in Nigeria”, Esther, the Managing Director/Chief Buyer of the online shopping company said in an inspiring blog posting that traced the chequered journey towards realising her dream.
According to her, “the Heroshe mission is simple: To provide fast, safe and reliable US online shopping and shipping experience with value, integrity and exceptional customer service to individuals and businesses in Nigeria. Heroshe understands that exceeding customer expectations is the foundation for building trust and strives to personalize every customer interaction one order at a time.”
Her company is helping Nigerians with handling delivery of products ordered from the US to their doorsteps while also assisting to scale difficulties posed by trying to buy from big players like Amazon, who do not ship to the country.
“If you have ever tried to order products from Amazon in Nigeria, you will have already discovered the unfortunate news: Amazon does not ship to Nigeria. This causes untold frustration for Nigerian shoppers, who have to think about creative ways to get Amazon products delivered to Nigeria. Some customers choose to ship their orders to American addresses and then have friends mail the products to Nigeria. Not only is this inconvenient, it’s expensive. You could end up paying twice the cost of the product once all the shipping costs add up. Plus, what if you don’t have any friends in America? Then you just have to give up on owning Amazon products altogether”, she added.
Established in 2007, the self-styled Nigeria’s online shopping portal has successfully completed over over 100,000 pounds in deliveries into Nigeria from the US, she said.
