About Buyam

Connecting Consumers and Vendors in Africa

Buyam is a hyper-local e-commerce platform with the sole purpose of providing users with the exact experience and feeling they get when making a direct (face-to-face) purchase from a market or shop. This is done by enabling users to chat with the vendor, who will then negotiate the price of the product until both parties are satisfied. Buyam differs from all other existing e-commerce platforms due to its feature that lets customers bargain for the price of goods just like they would in a market.

The story of Buyam started in 2014 when Churchill and Kelvin ran into one another on the streets of Molyko, Buea, widely known as the silicon mountain. Kelvin approached Churchill as he was making his way to his office and suggested the idea of opening an online business. Churchill agreed because Kelvin is a good salesman but charged Kelvin a fee of $100 for the development of the e-commerce site. Eight years and a few iterations later, Buyam was born.
