One of the larger economies of West Africa, Ghana is experiencing its first economic contraction in four years due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But positive signs are present, with the private sector growing 2.5% in the second half of 2020, and internet adoption continues to grow as more Ghanaians obtain smart phones. The country remains a target for international merchants interested in reaching the young, upwardly mobile audience of West Africa. Ghana’s attractiveness lies not only in the potential purchasing power of its citizens, but in the country’s investment in the development of stable political institutions and the rule of law.
More than 75% of all internet traffic is via mobile. Ecommerce marketplaces represent the fastest path to enter the Ghanaian market. Grocery, personal care, fashion, and consumer electronics dominate the Ghanaian ecommerce market. It’s important to note that Ghanaian government allows 100% foreign ownership of digital businesses interested in the Ghana market.
