Over the past few weeks, demand for fast moving consumer goods on ecommerce platforms has grown significantly as customers practice social distancing. Part of its efforts to meet increasing demand, Daraz has launched the DMart; a grocery channel that gives customers access to a wide range of essentials.
During the DMart Sale - live till April 24 - all products are being offered at discounted prices; items including hand washes, hand sanitizers, soaps, tea, cereal, baby formula, tea powders, detergents etc.
Additionally, DMart includes DFresh - a service available in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad - through which fresh fruit and vegetables are delivered to customers directly from the mandi (market).
According to the Daraz’ newly-launched Ecommerce Index, demand for FMCGs doubled in March while orders for hand sanitizers and hand washes increased by 18x.
Daraz has implemented strict protocols at warehouses and hubs to ensure the safety of employees and customers; temperature checks are performed across all departments every day. DEX Heros – Daraz’ delivery agents - have been provided protective gear, including gloves and masks, and have been instructed to disinfect packages at customers’ doorstep before handing over.
