Source: AsiaOne

The launch of several virtual Ramadan bazaars has thrown a much-needed lifeline to many home-based retailers who rely on Ramadan sales. The online bazaars allow businesses to list their contact details and goods on their sites, connecting them with customers at a time when face-to-face sales are no longer possible during the coronavirus pandemic.

Among these are platforms like B. Halal and Gobaza.sg, and BazaarRia, a platform jointly launched by DBS Bank and its client Mi Planets on Monday, which is already being used by over 800 merchants.

These platforms often help businesses set up their listings so that they can make the best use of what is available. Services are usually free, although on some platforms merchants can pay to secure a space for advertisements.

The birth of the online Ramadan Bazaar

The solution seems simple enough—at least for merchants who are already familiar with the world of e-commerce, either as a buyer, but even more so as a seller. Having first-hand knowledge about selling goods off a digital platform removes the dreaded barrier of entry for shop owners and forces them to rethink a business strategy that could effectively replace the physicality of the traditional face-to-face transaction.

“Most have never been on an e-platform before and naturally had their reservations,” Mustaffa Shah elaborated when asked about the biggest concerns merchants had about coming on-board as an e-retailer to his online marketplace, B. Halal. “Most of them are also home-based businesses who were worried they might run afoul of the law.”
