New online shopping platform launched amid scam

Amid the ongoing scam in the e-commerce sector, a new online shopping platform, Letsgo Mart, has officially been launched in the country.

Officials of the new e-commerce platform said Letsgo Mart will implement a transparent business model with “cash-on-delivery” feature.

It is also expected to help improve the current tumultuous situation in the sector.

Letsgo Mart chairman Mohammad Rabiul Alam, managing director Golam Mostafa and director SM Asaduzzaman were present at a meet-the-press event in Dhaka on Tuesday.

Despite commercial launching, the apps of Letsgo Mart were not yet prepared to be used for shopping till Tuesday evening as the banner showed that the website was under maintenance. Letsgo Mart managing director Golam Mostafa said the e-commerce platform will focus on on-time delivery of quality products.

Besides, Letsgo Mart will perform social responsibility through empowering women entrepreneurs in digital business. The company has planned to introduce ridesharing, tech-enabled solutions in healthcare as well as services in real estate sector, according to the officials.

Chief Operating Officer Syed Ashraf-Us-Saleheen made an overview on the e-commerce business in the present context of the country.

“The e-commerce sector is going through a challenging time due to controversial business models implemented by some companies,” he said.

“We come to revive the confidence of customers in the e-commerce which saw a momentum during the last couple of years. We take the opportunities of digital connectivity to make the lifestyle easier,” COO said. Syed Ashraf-Us-Saleheen said the mobile internet penetration is satisfactory in Bangladesh which may drive the growth of the digital business.

“Mobile financial services came to the market to create cashless society. We launched from the concept of e-commerce to make the society shop-less.”

“It also helps the business optimize the capital,” he added.

Officials introduced actress Bidya Sinha Mim as Letsgo Mart brand ambassador.

Bidya Sinha Mim said the business model of Letsgo Mart inspired her to work with the e-commerce platform in terms of ethics and honesty. 

Let’s GO has more than 8000 products in 10 categories. The products will reach customer’s address as soon as the order is placed.
