Payporte launches online food store

By Prince Osuagwu
Online shopping brand, PayPorte has shown some innovative thinking in the online space with the introduction of a new product line ‘Food store By PayPorte’,.

The e-commerce brand said the product is an online food store to make food shopping easy and more convenient.

Speaking on the new product line, the head of strategy and planning, Irene Kayoma said “PayPorte will be the first e-commerce shopping platform to introduce this to its clients. We developed this product line to address the food need of the urban Lagos metropolis hoping to cut short the hassles of food shopping by bringing food directly to your doorstep”.

While the brand continues to strive hard in meeting daily needs in terms of demand and supply, the management is mindful of key challenges and as a result has developed ways to manage some of the difficulties that may arise.

The food store will only be open for orders every Thursday at midnight and will end every Friday at noon. Delivery, according to the company, will commence from Friday to Sunday.

The e-commerce brand said it has adequate hands to ensure the smooth operation of this new line.

Kayoma added that, “the reason for this order and delivery clause is to ensure that we are able to meet all orders and to ensure all food items ordered are delivered fresh without going through any form of artificial preservations”.

The food store, has already gone live even as the company has plans of expanding outside Lagos metropolis and become a 24hour online food store.

PayPorte was awarded E-Commerce Company of the year at the recently held CBN Cashless Expo 2016. The CEO, EyoBassey during the event said he was very happy with the award and “to be awarded the e-commerce company of the year amidst other market players is a huge honour that cannot be taken for granted”.
