Izemall was founded by young Malawians who had passion for freedom, the need for convenience, the desire to differentiate essential from auxiliary tasks. They were driven by the need to save time for more productive business and work demands; providing individuals time to spend with their family and friends while at the same time being able to accomplish time consuming but necessary tasks such as shopping. In response they came up with the idea of setting up an online shopping platform. In ensuring that the innovation should not be limiting but rather empowering and enabling, they created Izemall.com to be a platform that hosts different businesses. With Izemall.com more people have an opportunity to sell on the platform, consequently, empowering the customer with diverse products, competitive prices and a memorable shopping experience.
The development of Izemall.com started in 2017 and the platform was launched the same year. However, Izemall.com faced diverse challenges including problems with the payment systems which was crucial to the sustainability and operation of the business. The project was halted as the team searched for alternative solutions to ensure that Izemall.com delivers high standard quality services to its customers. The Izemall.com team always believes that the platform either offers the best service or none at all. Izemall.com values making the customer experience that which brings about freedom resultantly making life easy.
