Zimbabweans Can Now Shop On Artienex, Zimbabwe’s Newest E-Commerce Platform


The invention of faster internet connectivity and powerful online tools has resulted in a new form of conducting commerce called E-commerce. With increasing the need of E-commerce industry, every businessman is looking to have an online store where they can sell their range of products and services.


That’s why one Zimbabwean company has decided to move with the times and launch an e-commerce platform called Artienex.

This is how Artienex work

The site is basically an auction type site where buyers/customers can bid for items listed by the seller. Any seller either individually or a company can open an online store with us and they can either sell an item at a fixed price or can opt for an auction sale. All auction will start from as little as $2.


Delivery of a bought item

Upon winning an item the seller is then responsible for posting the item through ZimPost only.

Do you pay anything to Artienex?

When an item has been sold the seller automatically pays Artinex $0.50 for each item sold.

What kind of products can be listed on Artienex?

Artienex says any type of product can be listed for sale on its platform. Obviously, it doesn’t accept illegal items like weapons and (illegal) drugs.

Is there security for a buyer and a seller on Artienex?

Artienex says;

We have therefore taken both customer / seller protection very seriously in that when a customer purchases an item from a seller he/she needs to make the payment in a secured money transaction and it stays there until the seller post the item and the customer acknowledges receipt of the goods and inspect if it is the right product or item. Upon receiving the goods or item the customer then releases the the money to the seller.

The Artienex platform could help sellers who are struggling to find a market to sell their products.

  1. There is no site on the link provided. Has this business even started operating yet? Why does Techzim post articles when they haven’t even done due diligence?

      1. Weirdly enough people are having varying experiences on the site. For some it’s opening and for some it’s not. Generally though, it’s not a good idea to dismiss something as fake news because it is not working on your end. There is no advertisement deal between techzim and artienex. All sponsored articles are CLEARLY labelled as such and next time take into consideration that it’s actually possible that artienex faced challenges after we wrote them.

        1. @Farai, i dont understand what you mean people are having varying experiences on the site when ive visited the site on different networks and computers i get eh same thing. Its a Index/ page, il believe it if you can provide screenshots of the site actually working, event heir Facebook page does not acknowledge any fault or challenges. See this is why Zim e commerce isnt working, these so called developers are just downloading templates and adding logos, saying they have done something with out any proper research or thought… then we get half arsed jobs.

  2. Fake news lol…. They did not even check the site themselves… Would have literally taken 5s

    1. Fake news for real lol But Techzim on a serious note can you provide stats on e-commerce in Zim?
