What Is BidNigeria

As we all know Buying and Selling online in Nigeria is still at it’s infancy stage, however this is quick to change.

With the increase in internet access as well as the continuous growth of computer knowledge by this new generation of Nigerians, there are now many who are looking to the web for opportunities.

We do have many companies attempting to help break this barrier, although not all have been successful, others have done a great job at making it possible for Nigerians to get access to the necessary tools required to operate successfully online.

BidNigeria is one of such companies that has, through extensive research and testing been able to develop what we would like to call a “perfect formula for success”.

BidNigeria is more than just a buying and selling platform, it is an advanced next generation business opportunity for Nigerians back home to take full advantage of what the web has to offer.


We are still at the beginning stage, and there is still a lot more to accomplish from the user end as we do have to educate users on a continuous basis how to use the system and take full advantage of its potential.

BidNigeria is more than an online auction platform dedicated to Nigerian Buyers and Sellers. It is a community of like minded individuals who would like to take full advantage of what the web has to offer, bringing that opportunity right to your door steps.

By starting operations in Nigeria, we feel that this is the beginning of a profitable and accepted international trading community where Nigerians will be perceived as trusted and capable online traders world wide

The people behind this project have been personally involved in building and managing several multinational Companies on the web both at home and abroad.

Hence, BidNigeria represents many months of research and testing to create a perfect and almost fool proof trading environment suitable for the Nigerian market.

This project is a very important one for us all; it will ultimately open many doors for thousands of Nigerians to trade internationally without the fear of persecution and discrimination.

The new auction platform offers highly specialized features to meet the exact needs of the Nigerian market. Some of these features include buying and selling tools that help eliminate anonymity, advanced instant verification of Buyers and Sellers, to create a trusted and a transparent trading environment.

All these features have been cleverly implemented to make the buying and selling process seamless; meaning that honest Nigerians can start Buying and/or Selling within a few minutes while the fraudsters will find it difficult to operate because of the system model.

The BidNigeria system is driven by community effort and is easy to use so that one does not need to be internet savvy to benefit from the program.


Before the official launch, a separate section was setup to give Nigerians an opportunity to obtain a share in the company by introducing someone to the website; and based on the referral activities, each partner is rewarded accordingly up to four levels deep.

BidNigeria is based on a solid foundation, which is partner driven. This means that the business is run it in a democratic manner with the aim of profit sharing based on partner participation.

Honestly this will probably change the way we do business in Nigeria forever.

What is the difference between and the partner program is the actual trading platform… “The marketplace”. This is where people come together to buy and sell online.
The “BidNigeria Partner Program” is your key inside the company. This is what is used to manage your referrals and their activities based on operations. and the BidNigeria Partner Program are both connected.

IN A NUTSHELL = Marketplace to buy and sell products and services online = The partner program that allows you to benefit from the activities at

Seller Policies

Seller Policies
Listings that violate BidNigeria's policies may result in disciplinary action. This action may include a formal warning, the ending of all violating listings, or even temporary or indefinite suspension of a user's account. BidNigeria's will consider the circumstances of an alleged offense and the user's trading records before taking action. In most cases, BidNigeria's will credit all associated fees when a listing is ended.

Items must be listed in the appropriate category.

Users may not use systems or techniques to circumvent, or avoid, BidNigeria's fees.

Sellers may not concurrently have more than 10 listings for identical items. If a seller chooses to list in more than one category, the seller must still adhere to the multiple listings limit of 10. Sellers may not use multiple User IDs to list more than 10 identical items.

Keyword spamming occurs when members place brand names or other inappropriate keywords in a title or description for the purpose of gaining attention or diverting members to a listing. Keyword spamming in listings is not permitted on BidNigeria's. The text sellers place in listings must be directly relevant to the item being sold.

Sellers are not permitted to create titles for their listings that do not accurately describe the item for sale.

Listings not offering an item or service for sale are not permitted on BidNigeria's. These types of listings include but are not limited to:
  • Listings where the buyer cannot verify the existence of the item upon receipt of the item
  • Listings with the apparent, primary purpose of expressing the seller’s personal views
  • Signposts – listings primarily meant to direct a user to a seller’s store or other listings
  • Want Ads – unless they are posted in the Want It Now Format

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:
  • Listing cancellation
  • Limits on account privileges
  • Account suspension
  • Forfeit of BidNigeria's fees on cancelled listings
  • Loss of PowerSeller status

Buyer Policies

Buyer Policies
Members are not allowed to interfere with another member's transaction.

Members may not contact a seller and offer to purchase a listed item outside of BidNigeria's.

Members are not permitted to email buyers in an open or completed transaction to warn them away from a seller or item. If you have a problem with a transaction, please use the feedback forum.

A bid is a binding contract. Except under special circumstances, bid retraction is not permitted. Furthermore, misuse of the bid retraction option to manipulate the bidding process is not permitted. This includes any manipulation of the bidding process to discover the maximum bid of the current high bidder or to uncover the reserve price.

Buyers automatically enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller if they win the online auction or use the Buy It Now feature. BidNigeria's Unpaid Item policy requires buyers to pay the seller for the items that they commit to purchase. BidNigeria's will issue a strike on the account of the buyer who does not honor their obligation to pay (unless the buyer and seller mutually agree not to complete the transaction).

Buyers who do not meet the seller’s terms as outlined in the item listing are not permitted to bid on or buy the item. Furthermore, buyers are not permitted to place bids or purchase items with the primary intent of disrupting a listing.

Because family members, roommates and employees of sellers have a level of access to item information which is not available to the general Community, they are not permitted to bid on items offered by the seller -- even if their sole intent is to purchase the item. Family members, roommates or employees may purchase items from a seller without violating this policy simply by using purchase options -- such as Buy It Now -- which do not involve bidding. BidNigeria's strongly encourages sellers with employees to ensure that their employees are aware of this policy and the possible consequences of violation.

Violations of this policy may result in a range of actions, including:
  • Listing cancellation
  • Limits on account privileges
  • Account suspension
  • Forfeit of BidNigeria's fees on cancelled listings
  • Loss of PowerSeller status
