Bangladesh’s electronics and technology products manufacturer, marketer and exporter Walton Group recently launched its online market platform Walcart aimed at building the largest domestic online service and delivery network. State minister for information and communication technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak inaugurated the platform in Dhaka.

“We have gone from an importing country to a producing one, and from there to being an exporting country. Walton is playing a groundbreaking role in this. Our goal is to generate $5 billion in export revenue from the ICT sector by 2025. We expect one-fifth of that to come from Walton,” Palak was quoted as saying by Bangla media reports.

Walcart now offers products and services in more than 30 categories, including Walton products, with thousands of sellers across the country connected to this platform.

Incorporated on November 22 last year, the platform already has more than 20,000 likes on its official Facebook page and offers more than 100 categories, including fashion and lifestyle.

It also has two separate business models for product delivery to its customers- business-to-business (B2B) model and business-to-consumer (B2C) model, delivering those nationwide in two ways- in-house delivery and seller-side delivery.

The platform also claims delivery within 3-5 days in Dhaka City and 5-10 days outside Dhaka following order confirmation. However, customers may avail of same-day delivery services for grocery items in some areas only.
