One cannot talk about making money online without talking about the most popular way - to sell a product. There are hundreds, if not thousands of products that you can source both locally and internationally to sell online. Alibaba, the Chinese online marketplace, allows you to directly interact with product manufacturers and wholesalers from across the world. With a quick search and a little capital, you can source for popular products worldwide to sell for a profit. And since we’re talking about online sales, you can use many local online marketplaces like Jumia, Tonaton and OLX to sell these products. You will be surprised how big an operation your small online store can become once you have your products listed on enough platforms. A platform like Jumia offers both storage and delivery services for your products, meaning you don’t even need to handle the logistics aspect of the business if you don’t want to.
