With the increasing penetration of mobile users and growing 3G in Myanmar, we believe a large segment of the population which wasn’t previously online from their laptops or desktops will now be online via their phones and we want to be there for them to kick start their online shopping journey. We already have an Android app for a couple of months now and launching an iOS version makes me happy knowing the stated love of Myanmar people for Apple products.”

Shop.com.mm iOS app coupled with nationwide popularity of Apple iPhones and iPads will help capture premium shoppers throughout the country.
