So what, you might ask, is the SMEAZ Online Marketplace all about? The SMEAZ Online Marketplace is basically an online marketing platform for members of the SME Association of Zimbabwe, which sells products and services that members offer. We also incorporate products and services of our Affiliate members. The platform enables you to buy online, confident that you are buying from bona-fide SMEs who are registered with, and known by us. Further, our Online Marketplace operates on an escrow system, which means that the seller only gets paid when you confirm that you have received satisfactory delivery of the product or service that you would have bought. We therefore eliminate the danger often associated with buying online or through social media platforms.


Our members span the range from agri-business through to services, therefore even when you don't find what you are looking for on the Online Marketplace, you can almost be assured that we do have a member that can provide it. You can simply get in touch with us via Whatsapp and we will find it fast for you.


Whilst online shopping is practically the more common form of shopping in developed nations, it has not made many inroads in Zimbabwe. This has mainly been due to high cost of internet data, unavailability of suitable payment platforms, some skepticism with regards to the whole idea, and of course the many frauds and cons that often occur online. Many online payment solutions also lack the critical "other half" of any online selling solution, which is the ability to deliver the purchased products or services. The SMEAZ Online Marketplace overcomes most of these obstacles, as buyers are dealing primarily with the SME Association rather than the seller themselves, and we also incorporate a delivery service. Our platform also features the full range of possible product or service providers, and so you can find literally everything in one place. In the event that something goes wrong on your transaction, we are able to get remedy on your behalf.


Not only have we solved the problems faced by many of the online platforms, we also feature a permanent reward points system, which gives you bonus points for each and every purchase that you make, which can be redeemed on any of your subsequent purchases. So you are a guaranteed winner right from the start. Our gift certificates are another great feature which you can use to give a present to loved ones, or reward customers, employees or give to business associates as a corporate gift.


So you can go ahead and shop, no need to worry. And tell your friends about it, while you are at it!
