E-commerce Aggregation in the Solomon Islands

About the Project

Island Tech Solomon is initiating an e-commerce initiative with the aim of providing an e-commerce platform for (M)SMEs to enable trade specifically between the capital city and the Western Province. The platform will offer a digital alternative for rural populations who face high cost of travel to the capital for essential supplies. Similarly, it provides an easy-to-access channel and market access to rural (M)SMEs to sell their goods to shoppers from Honiara directly. The project will support outreach and training activities of the platform, to bring on board 180 new (M)SME vendors. The platform will be developed for web and mobile and integrate digital payment options.
