Daraz has taken several initiatives including Daraz Seller Moitree Program and Seller Finance Program to support the Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) sector during the pandemic.

Under the Daraz seller moitree program, local marketplace sellers can avail the benefits of 0 per cent commission for the first 30 days of being associated with the platform.

The sellers are given 24 hours of verification time if the proper documents are provided along with free packaging materials.  In addition, they will also receive weekly training sessions, which will include necessary information regarding e-commerce and the procedure of navigating through Daraz’s platform.

Daraz seller finance program acts as the bridge between the financial institution and its valued sellers.

The program simplifies the application process and ensures that loans are received on a timely basis.

Apart from these projects, Daraz is continuously implementing plenty of programs every month to ensure that the SMEs sector of the country reaches its full potential.

Kamrul Hasan, Commercial Director of Seller Marketplace (Business Intelligence) at Daraz Bangladesh said that the pandemic has affected businesses in all industries. As a result, organisations have to modify their operational activities to navigate the pandemic smoothly.
