Logistics solutions provider Paperfly in partnership with e-Commerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB), Access to Information (a2i) and ICT Division, on Sunday launched a program titled 'Seller One' to help semi-urban and rural entrepreneurs sell their products online and facilitate delivery system across the country, in a virtual event. 

President of the Ecommerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB) Shomi Kaiser, Head of E-commerce at A2i program Rezwanul Huq Jami, Vice President of e-CAB Mohammad Sahab Uddin, Private Sector Specialist at IFC Bangladesh Hosna Ferdous Sumi, Head of MSME Banking of Prime Bank Syed M Omar Tayub, Paperfly Chief Marketing Officer Rahath Ahmed, were present, among others, in the event, said press release.

“Seller One program is our endeavor which will help the ecommerce ecosystem and expected to help increase online seller base throughout the country," Paperfly Chief Marketing Officer Rahath Ahmed said, in the media release.

This service would allow the semi-urban or rural entrepreneurs and manufacturers to sell their products directly to the customers online, he added.

President of the Ecommerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB) Shomi Kaiser said that “e-CAB and Paperfly jointly launched this campaign, in order to eradicate barriers for remote or outer Dhaka based  sellers so that more merchants could start their online business from outside Dhaka.

"Of course, this will not happen overnight but with this campaign, we can proudly say we are one step closer to achieving our goal,” she added.

The release informed that more than 50,000 online merchants were currently doing their business using Facebook platform where majority are Dhaka-based.

Businesses online from outside Dhaka are yet to evolve due to absence of a professional e-commerce focused logistics partner, insufficient knowledge of running their businesses online and financial support, it added and mentioned that the program would boost e-commerce in remote areas of the country.
