By making Pumili.com a success, we are encouraging more people to create businesses in the country, which in terms benefit both individual and the whole economy.
More Reasons For Creating Pumili.com
Based on personal experience, there are a lot times that I could not find a product or a supply and wouldn’t even know where to look for it. It doesn’t appear on the internet. There is no way to find it. Then after sometime, you realize from a colleague that there is an existing business selling the product that you wish.
It is also difficult to canvas prices from other suppliers because when you finally found a supplier that sells what you are looking for, you would already be too happy, so you’ll buy it immediately.
Most of the time, you won’t be able to find these small businesses simply because they lack exposure.
There are also instances that you’ll find the item you are looking for being sold by a starting entrepreneur who lives faraway but agrees to shipped the items to you. But this creates an issue on Trust and Security for both parties.
This situation and circumstances is what we are trying to solve. We want to help small businesses and protect the buyer.
