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
- 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.
- Zoobashop: Zoobashop has a broad category of products from Phones, home appliances, food, drinks & groceries, fashion and beauty products, baby, kids & toys and lots more.
- Cheki Ghana: Checki is a car website in Ghana where you can buy or sell a car in Ghana.
- 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.
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.
