Books First has launched its online bookstore, the first e-commerce website by a local bookshop. The website carries all of Books First's titles currently available in their shop (over 7,000 different titles in 20 categories), and customers can conveniently order over the Internet and pay via Safaricom's M-PESA service. Alternatively, payments can be made by cash on delivery, cheques and bank deposits. Books First is offering free delivery within Nairobi's Central Business District (CBD). They also deliver to other places in Kenya at a small fee, and they even do international deliveries! Hopefully, they will also accept credit cards in the near future, as this would be particularly useful for international customers.
