Every year, we witness shopping spree among Nepalese during Dashain Tihar season. On weekends, shopping malls seem to be filled with the hustle and bustle of shoppers. While there are still many people visiting shopping malls, quite a few have started adopting online shopping.
Increasing use of smartphones have motivated mobile shopping all around the world and Nepal is joining the trend as well. Nepal has seen tremendous growth in the availability of products online encompassing wide varieties from clothing to mobile phones, electronic gadgets, food and beverages. Whether one is seeking for new clothes to wear during festival, or a branded headphones, game box to gift their brothers during Bhai Tika, everything can be ordered and paid for online.
Taking advantage of the use of smartphones, companies like eSewapasal, Sastodeal and Daraz are leading the online shopping market. Other retailers like OKDam, Mero Shopping, and Reddoko are gaining popularity as well. One of the prime reasons behind increasing online festive season could be the various gifts and discounts e-commerce platforms are offering on each purchase. Another factor motivating online shopping could be an increasing number of digital wallet users. With more people installing digital wallets like eSewa, payment for online shopping have become easier, encouraging more people to indulge in online shopping.
The wave of online shopping for festive necessities have already started and with increasing adoption of digital payments, the trend is expected to grow bigger and bigger.
Lastly, keeping up with the festive season, we bring our eSewa users “उत्सवको बहार हप्तै पिच्छे उपहार” offer. For updates about our upcoming offers as well as about offer winner announcements, follow us on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
