If you need to create an online visibility for your business at no extra cost, then you need to try the First Bank Nigeria 3AL portal; a self-service tool which enables businesses to set up their online store, upload their products and interact with potential consumers from all locations in Nigeria and globally.
3AL.com is a business networking portal, where you can buy and sell anything online from anywhere in the world. On 3AL, you can make connections and transact business from the comfort of your living room to any part of the world saving you time, money and stress.
The platform allows sellers to receive online payment for their products. You will pay transaction fee per product sold if you decide to use the platform to process online payment for your products. 3AL will deduct the transaction fee before you are paid into your registered bank account. Online payment is processed by FirstEConnect, a robust payment gateway deployed by FirstBank.
For sellers that are not using the platform's online payment processor, buyers can easily contact them to arrange for payment and delivery of their orders.
All deliveries on 3AL are handled by DHL Nigeria International. DHL picks up the products from the sellers and get them delivered to the buyers. Buyers pay the shipping cost. Delivery of purchases within Lagos takes place within 48hours while delivery outside Lagos takes place within 72 - 96hours.
