Kapruka brings 'Global Shopping' to Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka's largest e-commerce organization, Kapruka.com has unveiled an exciting shopping experience to Sri Lankans through its 'Kapruka Global Shop' which will give customers access to over 50 million global products in Sri Lanka.

The 'Kapruka Global Shop' has its doors open to the discerning Sri Lankan shopper and will house a wide variety of products from clothing to electronics listed on the popular Amazon.com and Ebay.com online shopping portals.

Brain child behind this unique initiative, Dulith Herath, who is both founder and Chairman of Kapruka promises that the Kapruka Global Shopwhich, which would be located in Colombo 04, will take shopping to a new level. "There are a limited number of Sri Lankans who use the online shopping facility via Amazon.com and Ebay.com, but often they pay a very high shipping rate to ship items to Sri Lanka from the United States. This is where the Kapruka Global Shop would come in and allow Sri Lankans to order items from these popular websites and get them shipped for a very nominal shipping fee," Herath, who is also dubbed as Sri Lanka's E-Commerce King emphasized.

"We have a container coming to Sri Lanka every fortnight from the US and all orders made via the Kapruka Global Shop would be shipped to a US based address which would then be transported to Colombo in the container within a very short period of time, thereby allowing Sri Lankan based customers to save significantly on shipping," he noted.

Accordingly, customers who order products through the Kapruka Global Shop, would benefit with a massive saving as they would only be paying a fraction of the shipping cost instead of the usually high shipping costs from US to Sri Lanka.

The state-of-the-art, technically savvy Kapruka Global Shop, would house computers with internet access, allowing customers to visit the shop, browse products and purchase them.

"We will change commerce in Sri Lanka with this initiative," he promises while adding that unlike on most websites which offer cheap low quality Chinese products, the Kapruka Global Shop will often offer high quality products from the US, with a testament to quality.

Herath also plans to further propagate his Global Shop concept to other parts of the country, including Kandy and Kurunegala, thereby giving rural masses access to high quality products at a click of a button.

"Only a limited number of Sri Lankans have internet access and we wish all Sri Lankans to enjoy this opportunity.So plans are already in the pipeline to expand this concept to other parts of the country, giving everyone equal opportunity to enjoy a one of a kind global shopping experience," he added.

Kapruka is a billion rupee company which commenced operations in February 2002 with the launch of Kapruka.com, which is Sri Lanka's most popular and largest online store.
