The people who gave us Mars Kingdom, a popular bike shop located in Binondo, Manila, has now gone beyond bikes and into everything else. Specifically, it now aims to be at the center of online shopping transactions with its online marketplace designed to become more convenient for our local merchants.
The online shopping portal that they have conceptualized is more innovative and easy to use, plus the assurance of a better experience for both buyer and seller. It also caters to even new and emerging entrepreneur, businesses or even startups who could easily put up their products and services online.
At a grand launch held at the Bayleaf hotel in Intramuros, Manila, the management of BigMK led by Noelle John Enriquez, VP and Head of Sales, gave us a lengthy discussion of what BigMK is all about and how it could possibly be the next big online shopping portal which boasts of commission free services.
It's always great news for merchant to find new ways to sell their products and equally beneficial for consumers to experience better platforms that would help secure their transactions. This is especially significant when it comes to delivery and after service activities since the overall experience should include those that happen after the purchase. As a consumer, I would want a site who will still engage with me even after it has convinced me to patronize its products.

Merchants will also be encouraged to put online as many products possible since this will ensure more exposure for them. Plus the fact that the online platform is trying to make sure the buyer can also have a direct communication with the seller as the purchase is ongoing.
For the buyers, this actually beats going to the malls or shopping centers since we can avoid the stressful traffic and queuing at payment counters. For the sellers, there will come a time that there won't be any need for showrooms anymore since they can prominently promote their products online at a virtual marketplace.
Congratulations to BigMK for such an endeavor, and I do believe that what the speakers at the event have shared are entirely true. The opportunities for online transactions are massive if we can encourage more individuals to comfortably take advantage of the convenience online shopping platforms can provide. This business has yet to tap a greater number of individuals since many are still hesitant to rely on online transactions, but eventually everything will be smoother and more efficient that physical shopping stores and malls would soon be a thing of the past.
