My interview with World Pulse
Have you experienced any special challenges in trying to sell in other countries?
The greatest challenge we have had so far is the high cost of delivering small orders and samples through DHL or AIR FREIGHT . We therefore call and advise our customers and would be customers to benefit from our wholesale low prices and order in bulk that will minimize the cost of transportation , through sea freight. We face problem of referrals to enable foreign buyers pay for their products due to scamming etc. Problems of selling online because we do not have access to credit card facilities and websites.
What issues do you run into frequently in trying to sell to other countries?
The issue we fall into frequently is the constant changing of exchange rates.
What are the misconceptions that other countries have about Cameroon?
Cameroon referred to as AFRICA IN MINIATURE is an oasis of peace in sub-Sahara Africa and a good atmosphere for business.Investors investing in Cameroon are sure to profit from their investments.
Cameroon a country with more than 280 ethnic tribes offer exquisite and quality variety of handcrafts from local women groups ,that will be of interest to foreign buyers.
The greatest problem in Cameroon is corruption. Scamming.
