Zimbids.com is helping merchants offer their local inventory online or through Mobile devices and helping consumers find what they are looking for at local stores.
It is statistically recorded that as the cash crisis bites, local consumers are reluctant to spend, choosing only to spend on necessities. This is a contrast to the diaspora populous which has been responsible for remitting an estimated US3bn dollars therefore propping up the local economy. However the local businesses are yet to directly capitalize on this revenue as the absence of a direct tool to facilitate transactions and online shopping activity by the diaspora has hindered this from happening. Zimbids.com is that tool as it offers exactly that missing connection between local businesses and the diaspora consumer.
