Going e-commerce in PNG was the main topic of discussion at a small but important gathering at Holiday Inn in Port Moresby last weekend by members and management of YuEmBoss PNG Ltd and media personnel.
With the increasing use of ICT products and services, business in Papua New Guinea is now taking a new direction as it slowly venture into electronic commerce (e-commerce).
Director of YuEmBoss PNG Ltd, Eric Lin told EMTV Online that the old fashioned style of business in PNG will soon be over as more people trade using ICT services that are already available in the country.
Lin believes technology is evolving at a faster rate than it is now, therefore businesses have to think ahead of time and visualise how the way of doing business is going to be in the next five or ten years.
“As telecommunication companies are investing millions of kina into setting up cell towers and providing mobile broadband services, wireless connection will be more affordable and more available for everybody hence will greatly help e-commerce”.
YuEmBoss PNG Ltd is currently recruiting any Papua New Guinean who wants to be an entrepreneur and own an online shop of their own and is setting up its headquarters at 9 mile area in Port Moresby and building warehouses to store supplies that will be sold online by the online shop owners.
“We are providing them a platform, an opportunity to start businesses of their own without financial risks. We are taking the risk from them and all we ask from them is some commitment, some co-work effort.” Said Lin.
The director confirmed the online shops owned by Papua New Guineans will get their supplies from YuEmBoss PNG Ltd headquarters in Port Moresby to sell them to their customers without paying any money, instead make commissions on every product they sell.
When asked what makes them (YuEmBoss) different from other network international companies, Lin said YuEmBoss does not allow members to pay membership fees to join like other network companies do.
“We do not ask any of our members to pay to register because we see them as our business partners and team mates. We are YuEmBoss and we are willing to help anyone and give them the opportunity to succeed. Everyone is welcome to join us.”
He also warned Papua New Guineans not to join such global network companies as they may be scammers and that they have no office or headquarters in PNG.
“The other companies come to get people but their headquarters are somewhere in other countries. YuEmBoss is here to stay.” reiterated Lin
As they have a plan to extend to other parts of PNG, Lin says YuEmBoss PNG Ltd is eager to help Papua New Guineans achieve financial freedom by being real entrepreneurs selling real items from ICT, household and building products to vehicles and many more.
“As we are talking, two hundred different products are on their way to PNG and once our warehouses are completed, tones of new products will be coming in.” Lin said.
