Africans will now be able to sell their goods directly to the United States on eBay through a partnership with MallforAfrica.com.

The partnership announced  this week builds on an existing relationship between the two companies which gives Africans the ability to purchase items from eBayforAfrica.com or directly through the Mall for Africa app.

Select vendors from six African countries namely Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, and Burundi now have a new platform to sell their artisan products to the US.

“The main criteria are that the products be made in Africa and quality―making sure it’s a quality product that we can ship within the categories selected,” said MallforAfrica CEO Chris Folayan.

For the new program, MallforAfrica selects the sellers and handles payments on its proprietary platform. DHL is the shipping partner. Online shoppers can browse the entire collection on eBay’s Mall for Africa Store.

To start, product categories will include fashion, art & collectibles, jewelry, and clothing.

The partnership will extend into more product categories and African countries in the coming months.

The new online channel expands an existing relationship between the two e-commerce companies. In 2016, they launched the eBay Powered by MallforAfrica platform allowing U.S. vendors to sell in Africa.
