Good. I’m glad I managed to gain your attention.

Africa is increasingly making significant contributions to the technological boom. Many groundbreaking startups are coming out of our continent. Perhaps it’s time to start taking on Silicon Valley’s giant start-ups.

A 25-year-old Ghanaian developer, Khophi Nyiarkho, has built a new shopping platform “to rival Amazon and Ebay”. Khophi, a Senior Web Developer, with a Udacity Nanodegree, who taught himself to code by taking online courses during his free time, built PackageToMe, a shopping website. The site is currently up for “legitimate reasons”, so we encourage you to check its awesomeness.

“We believe we’ve built a product that is good enough and can scale globally.

In a short period of time, PackageToMe was able to get, precisely, in about two weeks, we were able to get 20 million subscribers. Which is really impressive”

PackageToMe, an impressive shopping-cum-peer-to-peer delivery service, allows users to search, purchase and deliver a huge array of both electronic and physical items from multiple places into one source. Most popular orders on PackageToMe are iPhones, Cars, and Loius Vuitton. @PackageToMe on Twitter already has a following of more than 13,000 followers, with over 10 million unique visits a month, from some 20 million registered users.

Khophi believes that his startup can scale globally, and who’s to say that it won’t? Meanwhile, you can watch the PackageToMe introductory video, which is hosted on YouTube:
