Recorded to be topping the most major shopping days, Black Friday is the ultimate busy peak for the online shopping sites. Competing well with their international counterparts, online shopping portals in Pakistan are no exception.

Since today many of us shall be looking forward to avail the host of discounts at the good online shopping sites, we – at Pakwired, thought it best to compile a fresh-from-the-oven list of top ten most popular online shopping sites in Pakistan. There have been quite a few Top Ten Shopping Sites compilations in the past, but that was in the Pre-Brexit, Pre-Trump, Pre-RaheelSharifRetirement era! Today it’s a different world and requires a new list for our shopping enthusiasts.

Currently valued at over $60 million, Pakistan’s e-commerce industry has been doubling in size every year by growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 100%. As per the trend prediction of the experts from the e-commerce sector, this growth is likely to continue during the next three to five years with the industry crossing over the $5 billion milestone in 2020.
With this relentless growth projection & internet access for all Pakistanis gradually becoming cheaper and easier, many key players have established themselves over the e-commerce horizon. Here, we shall be sharing with you only the cream of the web based retail portals.

It shall be useful to clarify that instead of basing our ranking over any arbitrary factors, we have employed our list positions based upon popularity gauged by Alexa’s Traffic Ranking. The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). The rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users.

If it’s at planet earth, it’s at Daraz.pk. Yes, it’s that huge a product range they keep at Daraz.pk. The portal claims that online shopping in Pakistan has never been so easy, and if footfall and traction at the site is anything to go by, Pakistan seems to agree!

Happy shopping all!

    KAYMU IS THE WORST EXPERIENCE AS A SELLER. THEY ARE THUGS AND DECEPTORS. AS SELLERS THEY FORCE US TO POST FABRICATED PICTURES OF THE ITEMS COPIED FROM THE NET. KAYMU IS A NIGHTMARE FOR THE SELLERS. PLEASE DONT GO FOR IT. ITS NAME IS WRONGLY PLACED ON NO 2 ON THIS FORUM. PERHAPS THEY WOULD HAVE PAID FOR IT LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO FOR DECIEVEING PEOPLE

    I have been a user of daraz.pk .I have spent over 20,000 rps on there website. Most of their items are a fake .you shouldn’t buy from there unless u have full knowledge about the item. I’m very disappointed at daraz. They lost a customer over a small product . They didn’t really care. Poor customer care service. Thank u for the list of websites .. I can’t wait to take my money somewhere else!!

    Paid Article, daraz is 3rd class online store, greedy for their commissions, never buy ever from Daraz if they do not change their minds regarding their selling partners

    The list missed QareebiDukan.com! It’s awesome cuz it connects the local sellers with buyers, & delivers with 59 minutes. Local sellers don’t sell fake stuff like daraz and others cuz the customer would easily come to the shop, & deal with the seller. No waits at all!

    Worst experience with Daraz. I bought a lot of items from them and most of them were fake. They really don’t care about there customers. You should bring Daraz at 4th or 5th place but you may keep them in the list of fake item sellers at 2nd or 3rd place.
    I am really disappointed with them. They must need to change their business plan other wise they gonna lose their reputation in on-line market.

      I think this is about the seller not about daraz. Yes Daraz need to keep an eye on its merchants but Daraz will never know who is selling fake items untill a customer approaches them with a complaint. So make a complaint to Daraz so that other buyers get benefited as well.
