One of the ways Nigerians make money is by importing cheap laptops into the country and selling them at a profit.

Laptops are a hot commodity in the market but a majority of people who really want to buy them would rather prefer buying cheaper ones than buying the expensive ones.

The majority of people who buy brand new expensive laptops are mostly working executives, companies and profitable small businesses but the major market is in cheap used or refurbished laptops which sell at second hand value.

Most Nigerians would rather prefer buying laptops priced between N20,000 to N50,000 than spending over N100,000 on just one laptop adn that's the market you should be focusing on if you want to sell fast and make a quick profit.

There are lots of online laptop stores in the world but one of the places I recommend are the US stores since they have reputable online stores offering the right specifications and a wide range of products. When it comes to computers you can't for now beat the Americans and that's why you should be sourcing your laptops from the USA.

I've bought laptops for cheap before and at prices ranging from around $90 to $150 and I could still sell them for $300 if I want to after accounting for other costs like shipping.

Majority of people who would want to buy cheap laptops are the youths in secondary schools and higher institutions. They do have a lot of time to spend on computers but may not be able to buy laptops worth over $400 and that's why offering them laptops worth $300 and below could be a good business for you.

When it comes to buying laptops online and shipping to Nigeria, the basic things you need are a valid debit card, a US shipping address and an internet connection.

The kind of laptops you should be looking for are the cheap ones which may be netbooks, used or refurbished laptops and there are many of them on stores like ebay and Amazon.

I normally prefer buying from Amazon since there is no need to use a VPN service or ip changer since they accept Nigerian shoppers. I also make use of a US shipping service and then pay for shipment to Nigeria which costs about $50 to $70 per kg.

Once your laptop(s) gets shipped to Nigeria, you'll be able to track it and if there are any delays, you could always clear the issue by providing your valid purchase papers.

It takes about 10 days to buy and ship laptops to Nigeria from the USA and when you get your goods, you can always resell them at your preferred value.

    It is easy to get a US address. Just go to to get one. You can get the 1 year account of the $10 per single use account. The only other thin is that you pay the shipping costs to Nigeria via dhl.

    About your verver card, I'm not sure it can work unless your bank has activated it for online use. I think it is mostly Visa and mastercard that is accepted and it would be better to simply make use of one that is in US dollars rather than naira.

    It depends on the laptop and brand. First of all N300,000 would be about $1875 when converted. If you buy laptops worth around $200 and ship each with about $100, you should be able to buy and ship about 6 laptops.
