You can get good deals on cars on Jiji especially if the cars are used vehicles. I know a young man who makes about N500,000 using this platform every month.

The trick is to look out for cars advertised on the platform, if you spot anyone with a price below the market value. Research about the authenticity and buy. You can then quickly sell at profit.

Toyota cars are especially very good and marketable cars.

Nigerians especially the young ones are very crazy about smart phones. Ask a young woman out in Nigeria, there are chances that the first thing she will ask you to get for her is a smart phone.

Nigerians also love buying used smart phones because the cost of new ones is very high. This is an opportunity for a savvy businessman.

Just go on this online platform, search for cheap smart phones, check the authenticity, buy and resell. You can even resell on Jiji and make profit. You can also resell the smart phones in your store or on other online platforms like Jumia and Konga.
