Why Daraz is Selling ‘Small Surveillance Cameras For Spying On Women’, Twitter Reacts

Daraz describes itself as a leading online marketplace in South Asia that ’empowers tens of thousands of sellers to connect with millions of customers. This online marketplace is attracting more and more attention with its expanding scope and attractive marketing decisions like the 11.11 Sale.

It is pertinent to mention that in October Draz recorded 15 million active users. The number doubled in November with a total of 30 million active users on the e-commerce website. Given such a strong customer base, which is expanding on a month-to-month basis, the public expects the company to respect its customers and demonstrate significant operational responsibility.
However, the recent product marketing decision of the shopping app has disappointed the masses. A Twitter user posted how Daraz was advertising one of his products by objecting to women.
