TEHRAN, Iran, March 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology in Iran is growing at a breakneck pace, and the lifting of economic sanctions against the country has opened up a vast market for goods and services offered by small and large companies.
At the same time, thousands of online shops in Iran are selling goods and services to a whole lot of youth who have joined the World Wide Web. In the meantime, Seyed Mani Rahnama, an Iranian entrepreneur, has started sarfejoo.com website which compares prices. Sarfejoo is a Persian word which means "Thrifty" or "Cost Saving" and the website is filling the void of price comparison and helping Iranians pick the right commodity online. Sarfejoo.com is a tool to compare the prices of goods and services on the Iranian market. The website offers extensive information on fluctuations in prices, the launch of new commodities, inventories, and suppliers of different products and services, among other things. In fact, sarfejoo.com keeps an eye on the markets for electrical appliances, cell phones, household goods, cosmetic-hygienic products, etc., in Iran.
Seyed Mani Rahnama, has weighed in on why he has entered Iran's market and decided to launch the sarfejoo.com website.
"The reason why I stepped into the Iranian market was that it is an emerging market with great potential. Online shops such as digikala.com have been successful, and the number of online shops in Iran has exceeded 13,000. Hence, the need was felt for a purchase guide to help buyers choose the right product as well as save time and energy. Moreover, the site keeps an eye on the Iranian market. That is to say, the sarfejoo.com monitors the market and provides customers with information on goods and their prices. Therefore, as a purchase guide, sarfejoo.com not only offers information on the prices of commodities, but also specifies other features such as guarantee services. The site offers its free services through its Android application as well."
On the potentialities of Iran's future market, he said: "Given the rapid expansion of services such as electronic shops and websites, people's attitude along with business in Iran is shifting from a traditional approach to online sales. That will tremendously enable shops and suppliers to do business with their customers with more ease. Accordingly, we give e-shops the opportunity to introduce themselves to customers. In other words, we provide information on what type of products are offered at what stores and in which cities. We are not the only price comparison website in Iran but given the growing volume of e-sales, more sites similar to sarfejoo.com need to be launched."
It is noteworthy that sarfejoo.com was recently selected the top Iranian website in price comparison category at the 8th Iran's Web and Mobile Apps Festival, which is regarded as the Iranian version of the Webby Awards. Being chosen as the No. 1 website is a turning point for a site which was launched only one year ago. On this achievement, Rahnama says: "Perseverance holds the key to success. sarfejoo.com, too, has tried hard to make efforts come to fruition, the result of which was seen at the 8th Iranian Web and Mobile Apps Festival."
