The owners of general classifieds site Ekhanei.com in Bangladesh (Schibsted, Naspers and Telenor (SnT)), decided to shut the site down today (May 17), since "the market conditions didn't favor online classifieds and the owners were unable to develop the site into a sustainable and profitable business”.
Bikroy.com, leading online classified site in Bangladesh, is working to increase the participation of women in the mainstream economy with its 'Moner Janala' program. (Moner Janala means "window of your mind" in Bengali.)
Bikroy.com, the largest marketplace in Bangladesh owned by Saltside Technologies AB, is determined to improve its role as a facilitator for both buyers and sellers through logistics.
Ekhanei.com, a leading marketplace in Bangladesh, partnered with Opera Mini to give its users smooth browsing and cut data usage.
