VS Online Services helping small merchants open digital stores amid a pandemic
New Delhi (India), April 28: When the Covid-19 pandemic forced its way into our lives, small and medium businesses across the country were affected by it. It was an unprecedented calamity. While the pandemic caused disruption, it was inspiring to see how digitization was on the rise in India.
The pandemic has sparked a global spike in the growth of e-commerce sales and online businesses as worldwide lockdowns forced consumers to turn to the internet for buying everyday goods.
The shift to digital has fundamentally changed how micro and small businesses access markets, with digital marketplace platforms playing a central role. The pandemic brought unpredictable changes to every business, and the need of the hour was to survive.
Some platforms create new opportunities for small businesses to reach larger pools of local, national, and global customers and suppliers while also connecting them to social networks, peers, and mentors who can provide customized information. E-marketplace platforms also have the advantage of connecting resources at scale and in ways that are dynamic and tailored to the needs of small businesses.
