The recent lockdown ordered by the Nepal government amidst the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a hit on the economy of Nepal. Mostly, small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) have been affected by this lockdown. SMEs contribute 22% to the overall GDP of Nepal and employ over 17 lakh people. So, it is very important to revive and reinstate this industry. Keeping this in mind, Daraz, Nepal’s biggest online marketplace has introduced the “Seller Sahayatri Program”.
Details of the program:
With this program, Daraz is inviting vendors across the country to easily join their online marketplace. They claim that joining their platform will help SMEs to diversify their income sources.
This program is being implemented across all the operating countries of Daraz. Daraz Nepal is providing a subsidy of more than Rupees 55 Lakh to help the SME sector with dedicated one-on-one support and access to free business consultation.
Under this program, Daraz Nepal will charge 0% marketplace fees to SMEs for the months of May and June 2020. The company is also providing a quick and easy online marketplace set up so new vendors can start selling on Daraz immediately. Also, the businesses will have access to analytical tools, free-of-cost education, and training on e-commerce operations through Daraz University which will ensure the proper optimization of the businesses on the platform.
Daraz is also providing weekly payouts to the vendors, dedicated ad campaigns, visibility on the mobile app, free access to analytical tools along one-to-one supports to help new businesses set up their online stores.
The marketplace is confident that this “Seller Sahayatri Program” will help SMEs grow their businesses by becoming a part of Daraz and reaching its millions of customers throughout the country. More information at https://bit.ly/becomeadarzseller
