Online shopping in Equatorial Guinea

Hello everyone,

Shopping online can be far more convenient and offer greater choice than going into shops, be it grocery shopping or retail.

Are there options for online shopping in Equatorial Guinea? Which sites or apps do you use most frequently and are these local or international?

Are there particular products that are cheaper to buy online or that are perhaps not available in Equatorial Guinea?

What is the delivery process like — is it easy to receive deliveries and what are the costs of shipping? Are there any taxes to pay upon receipt?

Thank you for sharing your experience.

The short answer to this is no! There is not really a legitimate mail service here and you will find that many online stores don't even offer EG as a delivery destination.
The easiest method for online shopping is to get it sent to a friend's address in another country. Then have them bring the item back for you, or bring it back yourself when you travel off the island.
This works well enough here as many people here work on a rotational roster where they are required to leave the island for their vacation time. So there is always someone coming and going!
