Pakistan’s E-commerce Platforms: where you can start selling!
We need to establish the types of e-commerce stores that work from Facebook to direct websites/apps that produce millions of sales every month before we can discuss the names in Pakistan’s e-commerce market.
The following is a list of several types of e-commerce stores:
Multi-Retailers with a Lot of Money – Multi-retailers, who feature items from a wide range of categories, are the big guns in Pakistan’s e-commerce business. Stores like Daraz, Yavo, Kaymu, and Symbios, among others, fall into this category.
Medium-Size Multi Retailers — These businesses are not as large as Daraz or its competitors, but they have built online storefronts with a wide range of products. This category contains stores such as Toko, GoTo, and Well.pk, among others, who are working hard to reach the top.
Small-Size Multi-Retailers — These shops aren’t quite as large as medium-sized online shops, let alone the big guns. They concentrate on a single market and strive to capitalize on their expertise to increase sales. Stores such as Toko, Higher.com.pk, and Babynestboutique.com, among others, are examples.
The last category of Pakistani e-commerce stores is Facebook Retailers. These stores or groups on Facebook have a lot of followers. Haniakidsclothing or Lahore Buy & Sell, for example, are Facebook business pages (shops).
In other words, if you can create a platform, why not use it to sell through these online retail platforms?
