Back in April, Daraz Nepal launched the Daraz Seller Sahayatri Program as an SME (Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises) support package worth NPR 55 lakhs inviting SMEs to set up their online stores in its platform. The program has now recorded more than 8,000 registrations with more than 2,100 SMEs already operating online with sales on Daraz whilst others in the onboarding phase.
Daraz invested NPR 55 lakhs and waived marketplace fees for four months giving sellers access to more than 7 lakhs monthly active Daraz customers across the nation.
It has been providing free unlimited access to business consultation, e-commerce education, and training via Daraz University to help SMEs succeed online while provided dedicated one-on-one support to its existing and new sellers.
Lino Ahlering, Managing Director of Daraz Nepal said “We are happy that we could support the local ecosystem with our Sahayatri program, but there’s a lot more to do. The SME sector still needs more support during these COVID-19 times and we will continue to work towards the empowerment of small businesses across Nepal.”
The Sahayatri Program stands in line with Daraz’s mission to make it easy to do business in the digital age. Currently, Daraz has a growing community of more than 6,000 operating sellers and hosts more than 5 Lakhs products from Electronics, Fashion, Groceries to Household products.
Daraz sellers are now gearing up for Daraz Shoputsav, the biggest shopping season of the year that includes back to back mega sale campaigns: Dashain Dhamaka, 11.11 and 12.12.
