Bikroy.com, the largest marketplace in Bangladesh has introduced a new category named "essential" to meet the daily needs of people in the time of novel coronavirus outbreak.
Bikroy has come to the rescue with over 150 stores and more than 4,000 ads of essentials, in this unfortunate situation, where people cannot find necessities at the local general stores or even after ordering online, according to a Bikroy.com press release.
In this process, buyers can order from superstores of the same area and get their products delivered at home, while sellers can benefit from posting ads on their online shop on Bikroy even when their physical shop is closed. Essentials offer a total of 7 sub-categories including grocery items like rice, lentil, and eggs, healthcare items such as masks, gloves, handwash, and sanitizers, household cleaning items, baby milk, formula, diaper under baby products, fresh fruits and vegetables, and fish and meat.
"Buyers can simply select their location and can purchase their daily necessary items. Already more than 150 members have on boarded our platform," Co-Managing Director of Bikroy.com Eshita Sharmin said.
To ensure the overall safety procedure, she also advised both buyers and sellers to maintain personal hygiene, clean the packages and use online or mobile banking instead of cash transaction.
