yanmar’s e-commerce started getting popular in 2019-2020 and websites are increasing in number. As the Covid-19 pandemic hit Myanmar in 2019 and continues to spread around the world, people are increasingly turning to online shopping as a way to avoid going out in public.
COVID-19 was the reason that Myanmar people had to stay at home and work from home. They spent more time using internet devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets. So, Myanmar people started using the internet for doing their daily activities including online shopping, online banking, online entertainment, online news reading, and much more. In this digital era, people are trying to get everything done by just sitting in front of their devices without leaving their homes. Some businesses have been able to take advantage of this surge in online activity and the websites and mobile apps are improving continuously.
In Myanmar, e-commerce is still at a nascent stage with a lot of development required in order to facilitate greater adoption. As an upcoming country in Southeast Asia, it's no surprise that the e-commerce market is booming. In recent years, a number of platforms have emerged as the main players in Myanmar's e-commerce space. Below, we will mention some of the most popular platforms and what they have to offer.
