Benefits for buyers
Direct from producers
Nile connects buyers to Africa’s leading producers. View live inventory, discover prices and place orders instantly from multiple sellers – all from a single, easy-to-use platform.
We create trust between buyers and sellers by safeguarding funds in an independent trust account. Funds are only disbursed to sellers when products are received in good condition.
Nile’s producers are vetted for adherence to the highest quality bar. We partnered with Africa’s leading food inspector to ensure you always get what you pay for.
Benefits for sellers
Know the exact price you get for your produce before it leaves your farm gate. Prices on Nile are always linked to the latest available market prices.
Improved cash flow
We aim to process payments within 12 - 24 hours. Our innovative payment solution helps keep your premises cash-free.
The Nile marketplace was developed in close collaboration with regulators. Our processes are consistent with international best practises.
