Yakata, the much awaited version of Konga’s Black Friday has kicked off.

The event debuted 6am on the 26th of November and will be on for two days. Other stores’ Black Friday event was scheduled to start on November 27th.

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and is associated with massive shopping behaviour all around the world. Stores offer awesome discounts to shoppers and those who come first will be first served.

A few hours into the  2015 Yakata sale, Konga recorded over N100 million worth of orders. The figure at the four-hour mark was N110,000,000 ($552,764), according to a tweet by Sim Shagaya, Konga’s CEO.

Shagaya also added that Konga’s proprietary payment gateway, KongaPay,  processed more transactions within that period than any other gateway.

This year, konga had promised that the Yakata sales will feature mind blowing discounts across all product categories on the konga platform.

The leading Nigerian e-commerce site had announced that it made efforts towards giving its shoppers across the country a truly memorable Yakata experience.

It said it had curated an unbeatable line up of top selling items to be sold at mind blowing discounts for the period of the Yakata sales.

Also shoppers will have access to hundreds of thousands of heavily discounted products with the Yakata 2015 sales- due to the company’s army of trusted partners committed to offering deep discounts via konga’s marketplace.

In addition to these amazing discounts, shoppers get an additional 5% discount when they pay using KongaPay, Konga had stated.

An example of a hot deal for Yakata is the just launched Alcatel Popstar android smartphone. The phone will be available exclusively on Konga, at a special price of N15,900, an unbeatable deal for an android phone of its great specs.

A day to the sale, Konga released some pictures of stocked up products in its warehouse to tease customers on what there is to come.

More Nigerians than ever before are aware of the Black Friday sales and will be throwing a huge amount of requests at e-commerce websites. Hello fried servers.
