The recent advancement in technology coupled with the coronavirus pandemic that is currently ravaging the world has made businesses and people embrace the internet as an alternative means of selling and buying online.
Despite this, Asian shoppers are still on a crossroads on how to source and market specialist items all in one place. However, the end is near; Desibay – a new mobile app is in town to change how buying and selling takes place among Asian shoppers.
Launched on the 27th of May 2020, Desibay is the first buying and selling app dedicated solely to the Asian market. The app is completely free to use and offers a user-friendly interface which makes it perfect for even the least tech-savvy user.
To use, all a seller needs to do is upload their photos and create and manage listings in just a few clicks. Buyers on the other hand can simply browse through product categories or locate the product of their choice using an effective search tool.
Desibay is completely free to use; buyers and sellers won’t need to fork out a penny to use the website or the app. There is no fee to add listings on the platform, and buyers pay only the price listed by the seller – with no hidden charges.
From designer Indian and Pakistani suits to Indian-inspired homeware and even the latest cars & vans, Desibay aims to be a one stop shop for a variety of products.
This new platform is the brainchild of two old-friends from Cardiff and London, Desibay was dreamed up during a family holiday in the summer of 2019. As busy Entrepreneurs, they knew from first-hand experience how difficult it could be to sell unwanted items – or track down hard-to-find products – while juggling work and other commitments.
Moreover, they knew that there were no buying and selling apps specific to the Asian market. Since then, they have been hard at work building the Desibay platform, waiting for the right moment to launch their innovative new app, which will be available on iOS and android.
People are looking for alternative ways of shopping online; while others are seizing the opportunity for a clear-out to make some extra cash from unwanted items; the founders feel this is the right time to let this amazing product out to the public.
For the Founders, it’s a case of the community first and profits second, and they hope to build a strong network of users in the difficult months to come.
