Kenyan eCommerce platform Herdy has launched new app to enable its customers easily buy products from its service. The new app is available for download from the Google Playstore and from the Apple Store.

  • Ability to create a shopping list of items that you’d like to buy later.
  • Buy airtime feature – You can be able to buy airtime for any mobile number in Kenya. This is in collaboration with iPay.
  • Search button
  • Reward system – You will be able to earn redeemable points when you shop.
