Kenya E-Commerce Awards

The Categories

What’s our difference between brand categories and marketplace categories?

While the terms might be subjective or used differently depending on context, here’s our general distinction; If your website sells products, items or services that all fall under one brand (e.g. Nike, Japan Airlines, Hilton) you should enter the categories for Best in eCommerce (Brand), but if your website primarily sells multiple brands from more than one vendor or merchant (Lazada, Trivago,, eBay) then you should enter the categories for Best in eCommerce (Marketplace). This includes companies that have their own house brands, like Zalora, NTUC FairPrice, or RedMart.
