The leading mobile phone operator, Grameenphone, has shut its e-commerce platform Ki Dorkar.
Over 100 e-commerce platforms were connected with Ki Dorkar after GP launched the service in 2016.
Once introduced, the telecom operator said Ki Dorkar would be a key platform for buyers and vendors to get on the same board for effective communication with each other.
Ki Dorkar used to provide eight kinds of services, including booking hotels, restaurants and tickets, laundry services, and also repair services.
Initially, Ajkerdeal.com was involved with Ki Dorkar, but it left the platform by the end of 2016.
Grameenphone also launched the e-commerce site, GP Shop, in August last year following its launch of Ki Dorkar. The GP Shop aimed at providing all services with one click.
Sources said Grameenphone shut down Ki Dorkar in a bid to promote its GP Shop platform.
In a statement Wednesday, GP said it did not have much control over quality services provided by Ki Dorkar.
“As we do not have much control over quality with such partner-dependent platforms as Ki Dorkar, the promotion and operations of the platform have therefore been discontinued," said Talat Kamal, head of external communications at Grameenphone.
Kamal, however, said GP is working with e-cab to provide its valued customers with such services more efficiently.
