Some of us may have used these opportunities before, but now this rate is quite high. Although small businesses started to be negatively affected by the restrictions, it is possible to say that the density of businesses providing e-commerce services has increased. In short, at this point, we can say that the coronavirus epidemic has less negative effects for e-commerce companies if they manage their services correctly. Today, we will receive tips from the Trendyol team on how to participate in this platform. Our aim is to start a business partnership ”.
Noting that the key to eliminating the negative effects of the pandemic process on the economy and getting out of the crisis is through e-commerce, Aslan said, “I think e-commerce is a very beneficial system for both companies and customers. While consumers can reach the products they want in this field at a more affordable price, companies may prefer e-commerce because it reduces the cost a little more. "With Covid-19, shopping habits will change, people will want products in a more controlled, faster and more hygienic way, which will increase the market volume." Trendyol Executive Board Member Ozan Acar stated that during the pandemic process, e-commerce is a channel that people can breathe. Acar said, “Our people also made good use of this channel. E-Commerce has grown rapidly at an unexpected rate. Actually, E-Commerce is a growing area with SMEs. Of course, there should be production power behind it, because the important thing is to be able to produce. When we look at the Trendyol platform, 95 percent of those who sell are SMEs. We need to look at the issue as follows: If Trendyol's turnover is increasing, it means that its SMEs are increasing. Our SMEs, which started e-commerce, send their products to domestic consumers, develop themselves in the meantime, and then go abroad. Therefore, SMEs should definitely be included in the E-Commerce process for the future of their companies. In the period ahead, it seems that consumers will meet not only their needs for goods but also in other areas on the Internet. This will be beneficial for Turkey's economy. We see that digital companies are the fastest growing companies. Digitalization is important to close the economic gap in the new period. If there is a market, there is also an opportunity for growth, digitalization provides this. E-commerce supports SMEs by opening them to the market and increasing efficiency. He also removes the regional development difference ”.
