In its first year of operation in Vietnam, we have reached a gross merchandise value of USD $600,000. The platform has 130,000 products, 10,000 sellers, and 45,000 registered users. Since then we have added new features to our platform which includes web site and in app live stream for sellers to sell their products to our users. In an effort to increase margin of products sold on the platform, we have started direct sales of unique products not previously available in Vietnamese market.
Looking forward to 2019, we have great plans in the works. We will continue to build first and unique ecommerce products, launch a new high-end deal site, VIPDEAL.VN, offering luxury deals to affluent consumer, and continue grow our direct sales business. Our vision is to be the first profitable ecommerce platform in Vietnam and in South East Asia and we aim to do it in the next 3 years…
The saga continues.
