Business owners now have the opportunity to expand their businesses to reach new demographics faster without the interference of middlemen or multiple retailers while sellers can earn money by selling products on the virtual inventory without any upfront capital.

In effect, Kuuzza is automating the traditional person-to-person commerce that is often driven by personal relationships, word of mouth and social commerce.

“It is with great happiness and genuine excitement that we announce the release of Kuuzza,” said Toby Nwanede, CEO and co-founder of Kuuzza at the brand launch.

The gap Kuuzza is bridging in the retail industry

Kuuzza provides a risk-free, exciting, profitable and sustainable business for young, agile and entrepreneurial Nigerians looking for an alternative source of income.

Kuuzza’s solution touches manufacturers, distribution companies, logistics providers, fulfillment centers, credit/loan facilitators, etc.

Kuuzza combines retail, tech, escrow payment integration and logistics in order to attain customer fulfillment.

With Kuuzza, everyone’s a winner. Every stakeholder, be it the vendor, seller, or end-user, everyone gets value for every sale.

Why choose Kuuzza?

Business owners can manage and keep track of their inventory. Products are available to resellers at no upfront cost. Sellers can access thousands of products on the go. Payments are processed using a secured, frictionless payment channel that is accessible by all.

Resellers can select any product on Kuuzza, decide and add their desired profit themselves before selling directly to customers.

For every product sold on Kuuzza, resellers earn points that can be redeemed for airtime, vouchers and cash.

All these benefits and more are available to all stakeholders on the Kuuzza platform.

“Today has been a proud and humbling day as we launched Kuuzza in a small but wonderful event,” said Toby Nwanede, CEO and Co-Founder, Kuuzza.

He continued, “I am deeply grateful to my team at BrandMobile Africa who have worked tirelessly to put this product together.

“Kuuzza isn’t just a powerful solution, it represents a significant project for us. What is more powerful is that every single thing that you are selling on this platform can be tracked in real-time through your Kuuzza dashboard.

“Vendors can see who is selling their products, and how their product is performing – these are real data that can be used to make quick intelligent decisions.”

While speaking at the event, Habeeb Aremu, COO and Co-Founder, Kuuzza had this to say, “Kuuzza will be among the most significant platforms empowering Africans (businesses and individuals) in the next 5 years.

“The objective is to ensure that for individuals it becomes a lifestyle application and for businesses, it becomes an enabler.’’

Gbemiga Jacobs, Founder, All Things Adire, a vendor on, who was present at the event, shared his thoughts on the platform, “It’s awesome, this is really awesome, and a good one and makes my life easier, because I get to focus on producing while giving other chains to others including delivery.

“I will really also love to see more vendors onboarded and I am talking to 5 other people at the moment.”

Hassan Tukpe-Ajikobi, Project Manager, Home Et Al, shared his thoughts on Kuuzza’s referral program, “I think the referral program will be a huge boost because those who are in the small and medium scale businesses will usually have downlines and if you can find a way to encourage them, they can bring more vendors.”

1. Create an account
Sign up at no cost and access our inventory immediately.

2. Find a product, decide profit and market

Robinhood IPO Priced at Lower End of Range, Firm Valued at $32B



Robinhood-Investors King

Stock and crypto-trading app Robinhood has secured a $32 billion valuation via its initial public offering (IPO) and is set to debut on the Nasdaq exchange on Thursday.

According to a press release on Wednesday, Robinhood has priced its offering at $38 per Class A common stock share.

The pricing is at the lower end of the $38-$42 per share price range the company had targeted and had planned on selling 5.5 million shares targeting a $1.89 billion raise.

Net proceeds from the sale will go toward working capital, capital expenditures, funding tax obligations, hiring efforts, customer support services, among others.

Shares will be listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on Thursday, according to the release.

Earlier this month, Robinhood began unconventionally offering a portion of its IPO to users via its app — a view some consider to be a risky gamble.

Known for its zero-fee trading structure, the company has continued to endure hits to its image as well as legal and political ramifications stemming from the fallout of the GameStop saga and limitations to users trading crypto.

The company is trying to reshape that image and is reportedly working on a new feature that will help protect users from crypto price volatility while hiring a former Google alumn to improve its overall product design.

“Robinhood intends to use the net proceeds for working capital, capital expenditures, funding its anticipated tax obligations related to the settlement of RSUs, and general corporate purposes including increasing its hiring efforts to expand its employee base, expanding its customer support operations and satisfying its general capital needs,” the firm said in the announcement.

Robinhood filed the public offering prospectus on July 1, noting at the time that 17 percent of its total revenue in Q1 came from crypto trading transaction fees, which represented a big jump from the 4 percent in Q4 2020.

“While we currently support a portfolio of seven cryptocurrencies for trading, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, 34 percent of our cryptocurrency transaction-based revenue was attributable to transactions in Dogecoin, as compared to 4 percent for the three months ended December 31, 2020,” the firm said in the initial filing.

Still, the company’s CEO Vlad Tenev is staring down allegations from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority over his failure to register Robinhood Financial relating to compliance issues.
