Welcome to wi-tribe Bazaar – Pakistan’s first Buy and Sell software portal. At wi-tribe, we always strive towards bringing new and innovative services. We believe in the power of internet and enablement of ICT services for Pakistan. Recognizing the need for a platform where Pakistani software developers could sell and monetize their software, we bring a simple and easy to use portal.
wi-tribe Bazaar is powered by wi-tribe scratch cards, allowing the purchase of software through scratch cards available at over 600 locations throughout Karachi, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore and Faisalabad. There is no hassle or requirement of credit cards or other e-commerce payment methods. Understanding the Pakistani market, we know that consumers in Pakistan are familiar with scratch cards and use them frequently for various services. We have now taken the same consumer behavior a step ahead, and allowed internet users to buy software using this simple payment method.
wi-tribe Bazaar is our effort to support, encourage and proliferate the local IT industry and software developers in particular. We understand that there are a lot of developers with products that they would like to sell in the local market. We are also aware of the challenges in monetizing software and applications (apps) in Pakistan. With wi-tribe Bazaar, software developers will enjoy a significant portion of the revenue share as the main beneficiary. The software and apps can be priced at Rs.100, Rs.250, Rs.500 or Rs.1,000 by the developer. wi-tribe Bazaar also offers hundreds of free applications, which will support developers in building and reaching a larger market.
Currently, wi-tribe Bazaar supports Windows Desktop and Mobile Apps for Android, Blackberry and Symbian. There has been a worldwide surge in mobile apps and its associated sales. However, looking at the local market, with approximately 22 million internet users in Pakistan, we believe there is a lot of value in the desktop applications. wi-tribe Bazaar is a robust platform for selling any windows software and mobile applications such as games, system utilities, wallpapers and customized themes. Our platform is open to all types of developers who would like to bring either their commercial product or even a final year university project to their target market.
We would like to highlight that for us, wi-tribe Bazaar is a forum for Pakistani software developers. We, at wi-tribe, are only acting as a catalyst by providing the platform. To help build a local ecosystem of software and apps, wi-tribe has taken a conscious decision to open the platform to all – not just to wi-tribe users. While we will aggressively market the wi-tribe bazaar in Pakistan, we also expect that the local developer community will come forward and play its role to help build the database and consumer audience. By leveraging the existing developer network in Pakistan, we look forward to their input to continue boosting the portal’s growth, ensuring that wi-tribe bazaar ushers in a new era for software development and commercial viability in Pakistan.
Thank you for test driving the beta version of wi-tribe Bazaar. We would welcome any feedback on the Bazaar. Please send your comments and suggestions to email@example.com. wi-tribe Pakistan is committed in making a truly vibrant and mutually beneficial wi-tribe bazaar community.
Enjoy your visit to wi-tribe bazaar!
