At the same time, Pakistan witnessed a huge growth in e-commerce, among the fastest in the world. Unfortunately, joining the e-commerce revolution was beyond the financial and technical means of small businesses. Some of Pakistan’s leading tech Industry veterans with experience launching several of the largest online platforms in the country got together and created a solution.
