Cambodia Post has been distributing products purchased on Chinese online shopping platform Alibaba to local customers for the past four months.

An online shopping platform is to be launched by state-owned Cambodia Post to allow locals to sell their products via the postal service here, company officials revealed yesterday.

“You see that online shopping is getting popular with our people now,” Cambodia Post director general Ork Bora told the Khmer Times. “If you look at the number of internet users with the Telecom Regulator of Cambodia, there were some seven million. We will launch in March – just e-shopping.”

Bora noted that Cambodia Post had already been serving as an agent for Alibaba, China’s biggest e-commerce company, delivering products to Cambodian customers for the past four months. “I do believe this will help generate more revenue for us as you see companies like Alibaba and eBay are very popular in the Asia-Pacific. We get around 100 tons per month,” added the director.

With demand for online shopping in the Kingdom on the rise, the long-awaited e-commerce law is expected to be reviewed and passed by the National Assembly in the middle of this year.
