We have realised the worth of online shopping and deliveries during the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak but there is still this lingering thought in our minds, is online shopping 100% trustworthy when it comes to electronics? Or would you rather buy one after a hands-on or visual experience?
During recent years, several companies have been trying to take charge of the development of online shopping in Myanmar and it has reached a point where online shopping platforms in Myanmar are becoming used by citizens regularly. Here is our take on some of the more popular ones :
Shop.com.mm was one of the first official online shopping platforms in Myanmar and maybe one of the best still.

It is not specialised in electronics so the range of products can be limited.
Getting electronics online is definitely a different experience compared to purchasing them in stores where you can visually experience what you are paying for. However, it is now safe to say that we can trust and order a device online just with a click and all the services that the online electronic retailers are offering. English language will always be a challenge, but using a live chat or Facebook messenger might be easier than visiting the store trying to make yourself understood in English.
