Ecommerce is rapidly growing in Uganda, and is expected to become the second largest online market in the East Africa region, after Kenya. This is mainly due to the rapid growth in internet usage and mobile payment options. Many banks are now offering VISA debit cards which allow for online payments, and some are even offering credit cards. However, due to the absence of ecommerce regulations, illicit transactions are common. One key advantage for ecommerce in Uganda is the expanding middle class with a growing taste for U.S. consumer items. Young people (ages 18 to 30) represent the majority of online buyers.
Available currencies will depend on the payment method provider, as well as any regulatory restrictions.
