Do You Know You Can Buy Brand New Laptops With Less Than #20,000.?
How I learnt About the Cheap Laptop Importation Business
A friend of mine told me that I could buy a brand new laptop for between N15,000 to N25,000 and sell same for N35,000 or more. At that time, a non-China laptop of same features was selling forN60,000 in most computer stores.I struggled through my university days and finally graduated and proceeded on NYSC in sokoto state. During my youth service, a friend of mine named Jackson who knew of my family history and dire financial situation told me how his brother sometimes ordered for some mini laptops (notebooks) and phones from China and sold them at huge profits in Nigeria.
I was very interested in the business so I pressed him for more information. He said that his brother orders for the laptops through the Internet and that he learnt how to do it from an e-book which he bought online.
At that time I was still a novice in computer and internet browsing. Although I had an email address, I hardly ever checked it and I didn’t even know what an e-book was. (For those who don’t know, an e-book is a kind of electronic book. It is not a physical book but is a book that you can download as a soft copy from the internet and read from the computer or print out).
After Jackson explained everything to me, I realised that all that was needed for me to start importing and marketing these laptops was to buy the e-book and follow the instructions in it on how to order for the laptops and pay online.
I decided that I will start by ordering one laptop for starters and imagined that if I can sell that first one, I will be able to make good profit and order for another one with less risk. In fact I realized that if I can sell just two of the laptops, I will have gotten back my initial capital and still have enough left to order for another laptop.
I estimated that the capital I needed to start with was:
Buy the e- book = N3,500
Order for one laptop = About N22,000
Transport, phone, browsing and sundry expenses = N2,500
The total money amounted to N28,000. Luckily, at that time I had N31,000 which I had been managing to save from my monthly allowance. This was the only money I had in the whole world at that time and to me what I was about to do was a very big risk because if the business did not work, I would lose all my life savings which I had planned to use to support my parents and start off my life after youth service.
Problems with the Cheap Laptop Business in Nigeria
Before I ordered for my first laptop, I was worried about three major things:
1. What if the laptop does not arrive and the whole thing is a scam?
2. What if after selling it develops a fault or does not last?
3. What if nobody buys them?
Very many things went through my mind as I pondered these questions for several days trying to decide if I really wanted to take the risk and go ahead with the business or not. Just so that you will better understand my mindset at that time, I will break down each question below:
What if the laptop does not arrive?
If it did not arrive, it meant that I would lose all my money which would have been a devastating setback but based on assurances from my friend Jackson, I decided to take the risk and today I’m glad I did because the first laptop I ordered using the instructions in the e-book was delivered to the office where I was doing my service. It arrived through DHL and took 11 days from when I placed the order online.
What if after selling the laptop develops a fault or does not last?
This was a major concern for me because it is a Chinese product and I’ve heard some people say that Chinese products do not last. Notwithstanding, I believed in the products and decided to take a chance. Now having been in the business for about two years, I can say that the products are really good quality for the price which they sell. Most of them last more than a year before developing any kind of complaint or fault and the most common is usually battery problem (in some products either it gets very hot or loses power quickly). Such problems are not common and can easily be fixed by letting the laptop rest after long hours of usage or in extreme cases buying new batteries.
In fact I have one which I bought about 17 months ago and it’s still functioning very well. I’ve not even changed the battery once. I also noticed that as the technology improves, the quality of the laptops and mini devices are now better. How long they will last also depends on how well the owner takes care of them for example, when charging, once the battery is full it is wise to remove it from the charging and use the batteries until they are running out then you can charge again and remove when full. This will ensure longer life for the batteries so always remember to tell this to your customers.
What if nobody buys?
This was another major concern for me, but I kept telling myself that the worst that could happen if people did not buy was that I would keep the laptop and convert it for my personal use. This was another reason why I really wanted to get the e-book which my friend recommended. I knew that even if the business failed and I could not sell the laptop then all would not be totally lost because I could easily convert the unsold laptop for my personal use.
But today when I see the way that people are rushing the laptops and booking for new ones and placing orders I just laugh at myself because if I had known that people would be rushing for the laptops, I would not have bothered myself worrying about whether they’ll buy or not.
What Convinced me to Start the Business
Having pondered the above three questions for many days, I finally asked my friend to connect me with his brother so that I could speak with him on phone to alleviate my fears. When I spoke with him, the brother assured me that there was no need to worry that he had been importing laptops and phones from the website for some months and that the products are very good.
He told me that when you order through the website mentioned in the e-book, you are dealing directly with the manufacturers in China so it is also easy to complain to them through the website and even complain to the website owners in case there is a problem. He said everything is explained very well in great detail in the e-book and that all I really needed to do was buy the e-book and read it and I will be on my way to riches.
When I asked him if he could forward the e-book to me, he said that he was not permitted to do so because when you buy the e-book, you are not supposed to share it with other people or you will be breaking the terms of the author so I just had to buy my own copy. He then explained to me how to buy the e-book. (If you are interested in how to buy the book,
After the conversation, in my mind I wondered that if the business was so good and profitable for his brother, why was my friend not also doing it? When I asked him, he surprised me by saying that he was saving his allowance so as to get some capital to start and that his brother said that he will also support him and show him how to order.
And so, based on the conversation with my friend’s brother I was now able to make up my mind to go ahead and take the risk. That decision is the best decision I have ever made in my life because it is what has turned me into a millionaire today
The next day my friend and I went to a cybercafé with my ATM card. According to my friend’s brother, I could buy the e-book with any ATM card from any Nigerian bank but I would only be able to use GTBank ATM or any other credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Websurfer etc) to order for the brand new laptops.
My friend showed me how to pay for the e-book and less than 5 minute after payment, we were able to download it. To my surprise and delight, it was a very detailed 73 page manual with a lot of pictures that explained the step by step process of using the site to order for cheap laptops in Nigeria and many other items like electronics, phones, clothes, shoes, toys, jewelry, watches etc. The e-book, written by a well respected lady also explained how to know the good China manufacturers and what to look out for when buying in terms of specs and features.
The first laptop I ordered was a mini-laptop which cost N21,000. Even though I was a computer novice, I was able to easily use the website to order it without the help of my friend because the e-book was very easy to understand and follow. The laptop arrived through DHL after 11 days of placing the order.
When I showed it to my office colleagues and told them the price I was selling, I was shocked at their response because I did not anticipate such a thing. They did not understand how I could be asking N40,000 for something that sells for N60,000 in the market. Someone even asked me if I was sure that it was not stolen. After convincing them that it was genuine and real, right there and then to my greatest surprise my boss made me an offer of N37,000. I agreed after some haggling and he paid me right on the spot.
I was stunned because like magic I had madeN16,000 profit just like that. That same day, two other people in my office requested for laptops and one other asked for a tablet and phone and they deposited N48,000 in total as part payment for the items. After work I rushed back to the café and ordered for the items using the money they deposited. This time I did not use my office address but I used my house address. It took 10 days to arrive all in good condition and I took them to the office the day after they arrived and was paid the balance.
So far, I discovered that I had made a total of N60,000 profit from selling 4 mini laptops, one tablet and one smart phone all within the space of about 10 days. I had also gotten back my initial investment and still had capital to buy more laptops aside from the profit I had made. Everything happened so fast and I was dumbfounded because suddenly I realized that my life had changed forever. During the five months that was left of my service, I was able to sell 63 mini-laptops (notebooks), 24 tablets and 19 smart phones. By the time I passed out, I had made N2,357,000 (Two million, three hundred and fifty seven thousand naira) in profits.
