Once a leading household name with branding in every space where people would even use it in sentences when referring to the act of selling online. Though it may have lost its popularity to some extent, it remains a force in the Ghanaian online shopping space to be reckoned with.
Tonaton’s rise to be a household name is in their signature mode of operation as a brand that allows buying and selling off their platform; bring buyers and sellers together and not just they holding and selling their own inventory.
A flexible platform that allows listing from vendors. Buyers get to compare products or services of same quality with different prices to make a convenient choice before purchase or listing for sales.
Most times tonaton cannot vouch for quality of the products or services offered by the individual listings. This gives tonaton limited control over the sales procedure. Their once renowned goodwill with the public seems to be dwindling with less seen in their evolution with latest trends in online shopping.
The Bottom Line
tonaton may have lost the hold on the market but remains a desired destination if you want to list something for sale, get rid of a spare or “slightly used” products and compare prices.
