Commenting,Ibitoru Legg-Jack, a vendor and owner of Dier Scents, said, “The day started as early as 7 for me and it was a big plus having my mum and friends with me. I remember a customer being amazed that I could point out what perfume she had previously tested as she couldn’t remember which it was. It wasn’t a big compliment but it still made me happy. The day went by with people buying for themselves, their friends, and even their parents. Being able to make sales and give my business the visibility it needed is something I’ll forever be grateful to Flutterwave for”.
Jennifer Jejelaye, Vice President of Retail—Flutterwave forBusinessat Flutterwave, expressed her delight at the success of the event, “Today’s edition revealed how massive the results of a dedicated and growth-focused company could be. Shoppers were able to easily make payments through our POS or Online Gateway. Many vendors also came fully prepared with different strategies to attract shoppers. We will definitely build on this success to make doing business more profitable for SMEs through our online and offline channels.”
