Online shops expo begins to raise awareness

Local ecommerce companies launch an online shopping festival on Sunday with a view to raising awareness among customers after the recent setback in the sector.

Some 20 companies from ecommerce, logistic and payment companies are taking part in the “Ten by Ten” festival on virtual platform, said organisers said in a press release on Saturday.

Organisers said the festival would focus on raising customers’ awareness as the anomalies of only a couple of companies badly affected the whole sector.

Only the ecommerce companies who run business in a transparent and appropriate way are allowed to participate in the event, said the organisers.

The participating companies include – Chaldal, Rokomari, Ajker Deal, Pikaboo, Pathao Foods, Sheba, EkShop, Aadi, Bangla Shopper and Startech.  Among logistic sector companies, bKash and Delivery Tiger are participating in the expo.

The customers will get maximum 10 percent instant cash back on the shopping for next 20 days.

The ecommerce sector has been experiencing turmoil in the recent time after the Bangladesh Bank investigation revealed the frauds and anomalies happening in the country’s ecommerce platforms. Many of the ecommerce founders are now accused of money laundering.
