The pilot phase of this ecommerce platform was started to connect Ghanaian retailers at retail outlets such as Accra Mall, A&C Mall, West Hills Mall and Palace Stores, and service providers with Ghanaian nationals living in the United States to have direct access to purchase and pay for local goods and services for their loved ones. Subsequent countries will include other African nations such Nigeria, Cameroon, Senegal, Kenya, Egypt, and Ethiopia, also Caribbean and the Latin Americas.
After 30 plus years of migrating to the US and having to provide financial support for families and loved ones living in their homeland of Ghana, by means of money transfers and shipments of goods, the founding partners, Stanley Addo, a financial industry veteran, and George Oseikwame, a serial entrepreneur, realized the need to eliminate the additional expense of money transfer fees and shipping costs by providing a means for the thousands of other Ghanaians living outside the country, a convenient and secure way to purchase the same goods and services locally from Ghanaian retailers and service providers and have it delivered to their loved ones without the added cost and headaches of shipping logistics.
The globalization of commerce and open ports has made it possible for the same goods and services to be available locally at nearly the same price as foreign markets.
Since the local retailers are less widespread, Homelandshopping.com has the opportunity to collaborate with these retailers to offer our customers more choices in products and services all under one roof.
