List of Online Shopping Sites in Ghana

Saviour Sanders

When it comes to online shopping in Ghana, most people are scared to buy or sell items. The main reason for this is because of the fear of people duping them, their lack of trust in the eCommerce world, or their lack of knowledge of how the system works. I am giving out my list of best online shops in Ghana.

I have asked quiet a lot of people on my WhatsApp list if they would ever buy an item online. About 80% of them said no. This speaks at length of how people perceive online shopping when it comes to Ghana.

I don’t blame any of them. The educational system is so theoretical that the most important things that students need to be thought are neglected where the old, theory type of lectures are forced on them on a daily basis.

Today, I am listing the most important online shops in Ghana where you can buy anything you want ranging from clothing, computers and accessories, phones and tablets, books, name it.

List of Online Shopping Sites in Ghana

  1. Jumia: Jumia Ghana is a very broad website with a lot of goodies for online shoppers. It has branches in other African Countries including Nigeria, Morrocco, Kenya, Cote D’Ivoire and Cameroon. Jumia has a variety of store sites including Jumia Market, Food, Travel, and Jumia House. The Jumia Deals is just like Tonaton, and OLX; Jumia Travel is a hotel booking site. Jumia Food is my favorite. It is a food delivery site in Ghana. You order for any food of your choice and get it delivered to you at the same price as that of getting it from the restaurant. This is a great idea.
  2. ZoobashopZoobashop has a broad category of products from Phones, home appliances, food, drinks & groceries, fashion and beauty products, baby, kids & toys and lots more.
  3. Cheki GhanaChecki is a car website in Ghana where you can buy or sell a car in Ghana.
  4. Melcom: Melcom Online is a new online shop in Ghana. We all know Melcom, and what they sell. Now, they have decided to get online. You can get all you need to buy from Melcom straight from their online shop, right from your home.
  5. Mega Discount Store: Mega Discount Store is an online department store selling the latest in gadgets, electronics, phone cases & accessories, drones, car & motorbike accessories, watches, cameras, Spyware, GPS and much more. They have 2 delivery systems: 1- Cash on Delivery: 24h and pay on item receipt | 2- Pre-Orders: Delivered in 10 days, payment in advance. MTN Mobile money payments is accepted. Their delivery is nationwide.

The above is the list of best online shopping sites in Ghana. Please note that I have not arranged them in order of importance. each of them is a good place to buy items online.

Market Sites in Ghana (Buy and Sell Ads Sites)

Aside from regular eCommerce sites or online shopping sites in Ghana, there are the buy and sell ads sites that make it easier and quicker to sell or buy items online. They do this by removing the burden of payment processors. All you do is to take the contact of the one selling the item. The next thing is to give them a call, meet and get your item. Such sites include:

  1. OLX
  2. Tonaton, and
  3. Jumia Deals

I think the above websites, I mean the market sites, OLX, Tonaton, and the rest are taking over the eCommerce sphere. They now seem to be the best place to go for most people in the country.

This is because of the ease of use. It is now the main thing that comes to mind when it comes to online shopping in Ghana.

    I actually saw this post and decided to try out Ahonya,: biggest mistake!
    I don't know anyone else's experience but i made an order in August, we're in October now. I do not have the item nor do I have a refund.
    A scam perhaps, please save others by removing it from this list.

    I just placed an order worth a little over GHS 4,000.00 on,
    i tried calling but no response. I called their second number and it was even switched off.
    I deposited GHS 50.00 just to see if they will even update my account and order details.
    But no, no update, no response to messages and phones switched off. Looks like the whole stuff is some 419 scam ooh.

    Ahonya is Scam pure and simple they are simply 'securing interest-free loans' from people.

    They have a value proposition on their site which they can obviously not deliver and yet they are not altering that and they acting like everything is cool and still taking monies from new customers when they've not been able to deliver what earlier ones ordered.

    These criminals must be stopped.

    Tony you must retrieve your 50 Ghc

    Ghana online shops are all scam, Tonaton is the most serious platform for criminals. They dupe people day in day out and when you report they will not acknowledge your response.
