E-Commerce Marketplace Evaly has welcomed the decision, the Ministry of Commerce has taken on the issue of e-commerce on Thursday. 

Mohammad Rassel, Founder and CEO of Evaly, welcomed the decision that e-commerce companies will get the price of the product after the customer receives the supply. 

A meeting on e-commerce issue was held at the Ministry of Commerce on Thursday. It was attended by representatives of the WTO Cell of the Ministry of Commerce, Department of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and E-Cab, an organization of e-commerce traders.

The meeting decided that the e-commerce companies would from now on receive money only after delivery of goods to the buyers. Bangladesh Bank will control these transactions.

Mohammad Rassel, Chief Executive Officer of Evaly, said: "We have learned about this from the media. We welcome the issue. Also, an SOP service will be developed through Bangladesh Bank soon. So that payment is not taken before delivery of the product. Those who have a bank or credit card will control the payment.

Rassel added that there is no e-commerce policy in Bangladesh so far for which Evaly himself has been advocating for a long time. We believe that today's decision is the first step in formulating that policy. We believe that this will benefit the entire ecosystem including customers, merchants and marketplaces. Decisions from any regulator will apply not only to Evaly but to everyone. We appreciate it.
