The much-touted Daraz 11.11 sale is finally over, and the company has set a new sales record this year. As usual, 2021’s “Biggest One Day Sale” went live on November 11 at midnight where the e-commerce giant made record sales worth Rs. 36 crores within 24 hours.

Daraz 11.11 sales hit a new record:

The marketplace sold items worth Rs. 6 crores in the first hour after the sale went live at midnight. It’s a whopping 130% increase over last year’s sales in the first hour of the campaign’s premiere. Furthermore, Daraz says more than 50% of purchases were made using online pre-payment methods such as wallets and banks, surpassing last year’s figure.

Growth to new businesses

Moreover, 55% of enterprises and small retailers that were a part of the 11.11 sale signed up to the platform during the pandemic. Over the last year and a half, Daraz has been working to help small and medium-sized businesses grow their sales.

It underlines the strength of our marketplace where customers trust the quality of products that they purchase on Daraz, and it illustrates how SMEs are able to unlock the online potential of their business.”
