Briefly Noted | Social Media and the future of books in Nigeria

Some may ask how the social media presence of book publishers can be monetized since Nigeria is still locked out of international payment systems like Paypal, etc. Well, local web payment options have recently begun to provide opportunities to securely transact business online in Nigeria. They include NetNaira, Surepay, Cash envoy, and the Virtual terminal Network which runs mobile, web and card services. Sites like Taafoo.com, debonairbookstore.com, Walahi.com, Naijareads.com, and Kalahari.com.ng, offer sales opportunities for book publishers.
