QareebiDukan is venture started by Q3Logics, a Pakistan based company, with presence across the globe. QareebiDukan started off to solve the existing problems in e-commerce, with a vision to get every physical business to have an online presence, whether the management of the business is tech savvy enough or not.
The concept of QareebiDukan started off in July 2014, and by July 2015 we had a working platform up and running. In the span of a year, though the venture started off with a one man army, it has gradually grown to a small team of around 10, working across the world.
Not to bore you with a long FAQ section, we'd still like to put a few words to set the records straight. So here we go :)
Frequently Asked Questions - aka FAQ:
Why should I use QareebiDukan's service rather than the 100s of other online delivery marts that provide similar services and have way bigger marketing budgets!
QareebiDukan is your local seller's online portal. It might not be as flashy as all the online marts, but it helps your local small businesses thrive, and helps their owners to remain free from the clutches of a boring job at a large in-humane corporate. Also, the local business has already brought your grocery to your area - why burden the earth with another delivery ride from the far-away warehouse of the large online mart, when you can get it locally?
When you don't charge buyers for delivery and your rates are as offered by the seller, how does QareebiDukan make money?
We strongly beleive online trading should be free. We don't make money of our beloved buyers and sellers. We just facilitate them by avoiding hassle of travelling for lil necessities of life. That saves the planet from unnecessary usage of resources on long delivery rides. We hope to make money from ad platforms, and from value added services such as marketing services for our sellers.
What is the range of products &/or what type of sellers can register at QareebiDukan?
All ethical products are available on QareebiDukan. Any type of wholesale and retail sellers can register for free at QareebiDukan. We don't charge anything for signup nor per order. Our motto for costs: Zero. Zilch. Nothingness!
What payment modes are supported by QareebiDukan?
QareebiDukan simply doesn't charge any money, so we offer no payment options :) Majority of our sellers however are currently offering cash on delivery (with no extra charges!). After all, isn't that the best?
Ok, once I place an order how long before I get it?
Usually, before the blink of an eye. Of course unless you're and alien who's not watching a screen, then you'd be blinking faster than the seller can bring it to you. Blink :). Our sellers commit for delivery within 59 minutes, cuz that's what they're there for - they wanna sell, and you wanna buy, right? Blink once more pls, it refreshes your eyes :)
Bonus Question: Why did you change your name from VRMerchants to QareebiDukan?
Well, V R still all Merchants :). Our customers were having a hard time remembering our name - so we listened to them, and changed the name to an easier one to remember.
