How it works?

  • Businesses register and provide us their locations.
  • After a successful registration, business can be viewed on the shops panel.
  • Registered businesses have access to the software where they can add products that they sale.
  • Added products can be viewed by selecting a shop at eddukalyo.com .
  • Also businesses are required to provide us with details of their delivery team. The panel to add a business delivery team is also available in the P.O.S Menu.
  • When customers open their eddukalyo apps, they are asked for a location.
  • The A.I developed in the system uses the customers location to display shops near them and allows them to select a shop they would like to buy from.
  • If customers have access to shops near them, they can make orders and receive their goods as soon as possible.

How are payments processed and secured?

  • A customer adds items to the cart and heads to the checkout page.
  • Tthe customer specifies the location where goods are to be delivered.
  • The system calculates the distance from the shop and the delivery location and determines the delivery cost.
  • The total amount to be paid by the customer is calculated by adding the total cost of the items in the shopping cart and the delivery cost.
  • After successfully selecting the delivery location, the customer is asked to pay for his goods via mobile money.
  • Once payments are processed and the money is received by the system, the customer receives a secret payment code and the shop is notified about the order.
  • Also at this stage a notification is sent to the selected delivery man/woman asking him/her to pick the goods from the shop.
  • The shop prepares the goods and sends them to the delivery location selected by the customer.
  • The delivery man upon delivering goods will be given the secret payment code.
  • When this payment code is entered into the system, it confirms that the customer received the goods he/she ordered for.
  • At this stage, the system will automatically send money for the goods to the shop via mobile money and to the person who delivered the goods.
  • The transaction is marked as complete and successfull.

If the customer doesn't receive goods in 24 hours after making the order his/her money is sent back.

Our Story

In 2018 we developed a point of sale software for small businesses, Supermarkets, whole sellers and stores. We Managed to have users from different locations using the software to manage their business activities which included records of their sells, profits, losses, customer details, purchases and debts. As we continued getting clients for our software, a pandemic hit which led to a lockdown and we couldn’t continue business as usual. Wondering what to do next we thought of finding away to remain in business and also to help our clients make sells through our software. This led to development of many ideas but later we realized that developing a location based online market where our clients could register their businesses and add what they sell was a better way their customers could find what they sell without physical presence at the shop. We developed eddukalyo.com in a way that a customer goes to the site, picks a shop he/she usually buys from, Adds items to the cart, pays for the goods via mobile money, the shop receives the order and sends goods to the customer’s location as quickly as possible. For more details on how this technology works go to eddukalyo.com.

We are looking forward to seeing small, medium and large businesses remain in operation during and after the pandemic through using our platform.
