Hence, you purchase data from these data reselling companies at wholesale prices and then, add your profit when you sell to end-users.

Take, for example, 2GB is normally sold for ₦1,200 by MTN. But when you buy through a data reselling company (which I will introduce you to), you can get MTN 2GB for as low as ₦660! That means you’ll be saving ₦540.
