Top 100 Online Shopping Websites In Kenya
Online shopping is growing in Kenya. Not only is there an increase in the number of Kenyans who prefer buying products/services from the comfort of their homes, but also a growth in the number of shopping websites to meet the growing demands. Without going into the advantages of buying products online, you’ll agree that ordering grocery via your phone and having it delivered at your doorstep is more convenient than walking/driving to an actual market for the same.
In this post, I list over 70 shopping sites in Kenya to simplify your next purchase. To simplify your choice, I’ve categorised the sites into Ecommerce and Classifieds with subcategories under each.
See, there are challenges when it comes to finding the right online store to buy from. Others promise what they can’t deliver as some deliver what you didn’t order. So, to be safe, here is a carefully picked list of shops and marketplaces you can buy from.
A. Ecommerce Sites
Kenyans do their shopping from online stores (here in reffered to as e-commerce websites), from classifieds (free/premium) and from social media marketplaces. Let’s begin our list of online shops with ecommerce websites.
Top General Online Shops in Kenya
From smartphones to blankets, these websites have it all under one roof.
Jumia is undoubtedly the most popular online shopping site in Kenya, both in terms of traffic and product lines. From spoons to beds, Jumia has everything under one roof.
I’ve bought a phone, Headphones, TVs and even a mattress from Jumia. And, from experience, I can say that Jumia delivers exactly what you order most of the time if not all the times. To get the best bargain (save for when they have flash sales, Black Fridays or Cyber Mondays), compare prices before ordering.
Jumia, in case you didn’t know, has allowed several other sellers to use their platform. This explains the different prices of say Tecno Camon 11 on the site. The trick, however, go for the lowest price as long as it has warranty.
When it comes to shipping, you’ll pay more if you chose doorstep delivery instead a pickup station. Always go for the doorstep delivery if you have the extra coin for convenience sake. Otherwise, choose the nearest pickup station. And, don’t forget to confirm your order when they call.
Kilimall’s only difference from Jumia, apart from comparatively cheaper prices, is their pay before delivery policy. See, while other online shops will allow you to order products and pay on delivery (a big risk on their parts as some shoppers do change their minds last minute), at Kilimall you pay then wait for your delivery.
From my experience, Kilimall delivers faster and in most cases what you ordered. Sadly, some of the products aren’t genuine. I’ve had a very bad experience ordering flash disks from this site. They were cheaper yes, but also unusable. You shouldn’t worry though as you can return the products and get a full refund (including the shipping fee) .
Just like Jumia, be available when the delivery guy calls otherwise you will end up waiting longer.
Saving Tips: Go for the flash sales and take advantage of every promos Kilimall has
Safaricom decided to venture into online shopping by creating a fully fledged ecommerce site by the name Masoko. And thanks to the multi-vendor feature, Masoko has it all under one roof. From needles to furniture.
Save for the products under “SUPER DEALS”, Masoko sells at comparatively high rates. On the flip side, they don’t gamble i.e their products are genuine (at least from my experience).
Again, to save on this site, visit the SUPER DEALS page and or take advantage of their occasional promos.
Yet another popular online shopping site in Kenya where you can buy your next gadget or bedding. Jambo Shop has some of the friendliest rates around when it comes to smartphones. Give them a try and share your experience.
If there is one thing that sets this online shop apart is their stock when it comes to phones. Instead of waiting for a decade for Oneplus to open shop in Kenya, you visit Avechi and order one as soon as it is released. They have this “Global Shipping” thing that enables them to avail any gadget locally.
At Avechi, the promos and special launches never end. Be sure to take advantage of these deals for great bargains.
You know the conventional Tuskys Supermarket, right? Well, this is their online site for those who don’t want to queue at the counter. As to whether it has everything you’d find at your local Tuskys store, that’s a debate for another day.
Good thing to note; the “lipa pole pole” option is available for online shoppers as well.
Saving Tips: Go the “LATEST DEALS” section and you might find what you want at more than 30% off.
Naivas became popular due to their considerably cheaper rates. And, Naivas Online is here to reach you who don’t have time to walk from one floor to the next looking for products.
Saving Tips: Click the Big Save and buy at ridiculously low rates.
Sky.Garden is where vender without ecommerce websites of their own converge. Thanks to that, Sky Garden has it all under one roof. From fashion to home home appliances, you are guaranteed some of the best products on the site.
From experience (have bought several things from Sky Garden), this is the fastest shopping site in Kenya when it comes to delivery. Their “Same day delivery” plan ensures you receive your orders in less than 12hrs.
Sadly, and this depends with individual’s financial abilities, Sky.Garden sells at prices even higher than Masoko. Something you could get from Kilimall at 500/- might cost upwards of 700/- at Sky.Garden.
Saving Tips: Take advantage of their many promos and compare prices from various vendors on the platform before settling on the most affordable.
ShopIT is technically a onestop computer shop with a few home appliances and office equipment here and there. While theirs is nothing close to a beautiful website, it is user friendly and with all the info you need.
Be sure to use their online chat option should you need more information on a product or looking for what’s not in their online catalogue. And don’t hesitate to share your experience with us via the comment box.
Technic is a relatively new online shopping website focusing on electronics and home and living. They claim theirs are the best prices you can come across but that remains a matter of debate.

An online classified is a site that allows individuals or shops to ADVERTISE their products and services. They are neither responsible for the quality of products or services. In fact, you may never meet the owners or operators of most online classifieds as the business is between you the buyer and the seller.
You must exercise extreme caution when buying from a classified since there is no one to guarantee quality. Ensure you meet in a public place and see or test the product before you pay. Otherwise, there are hundreds of fraudsters on these sites taking advantage of unsuspecting buyers.

Other online shops
Here are additional online shopping stores in Kenya to make your shopping experience even better. Please let me know through the comment box should you reach a broken link or a website that no longer exists/sells.
- BuyUSA (you buy from any store in the US or UK and have it delivered to you in Kenya)

It matters not whether you choose to buy from an eCommerce, free classifieds or a social media group, only buy from a reliable seller. An ecommerce site selling brand new products without a warranty should be avoided the same as a seller on classifieds/Facebook who wants you to send money before they deliver your product.
As a rule of the thumb (when buying from a free classified or Facebook) meet the seller IN A PUBLIC PLACE (where you are most comfortable), access the product or discuss the service and only pay when you are ABSOLUTELY convinced the product/service matches your needs.
