We are so happy that someone has got the initiative to start an online fashion store in Nigeria. Hopefully this will solve the problem most Nigerians face when shopping online in places like e-bay, Amazon and top brands abroad; paying with Nigerian debit cards hardly works on these platforms which hinders shopping online. But that is all about to change; Sabunta is the latest online fashion superstore that is taking Nigeria by storm and guess what? Shipping is free!
This is an amazing opportunity to stay in touch with the latest trend in the fashion industry and you don’t need to wait for family and friends abroad to help you buy what you want anymore. Go on to www.sabunta.com now, subscribe and start shopping.
