GP brings all e-shops under single platform
Grameenphone recently launched an aggregated e-commerce platform --Kidorkar -- aiming to bring all the e-shops and online service providers in Bangladesh under a single platform.
The leading mobile phone operator launched the platform on June 20, with more than 50 partners and 7,000 products and services, without any formal announcement, said a senior official of the operator.
It will be improved further on the basis of feedback from users and then be launched formally, he said.
Grameenphone wants all the reputed e-shops onboard as there are more than 1,000 e-commerce sites in the country and their number is increasing every day.
“With over a thousand online shops, it is sometimes difficult for people to get the right thing, and here Kidorkar can play an important role,” said the official.
Users can buy products from different e-commerce sites and book services like hotel, restaurants, and travel tickets though Kidorkar, he said.
Grameenphone said the main objective of Kidorkar is to create a one-stop solution for users for buying and booking.
The platform will help users take better decisions on what they will purchase, said Syed Talat Kamal, spokesperson for Grameenphone. Currently Kidorkar has 50 partners, including Kaymu, Ajkerdeal and Rightchoice. After Eid the operator will go for a big push to increase products and partners.
A few years back, Grameenphone launched the country's first e-commerce site -- cellbazaar, which was later renamed ekhanei.com.
