Pigu.lt e-commerce platform strives to alleviate the hardship faced by small and medium-sized enterprises. Due to the complex situation caused by quarantine restrictions on physical stores and the uncertainty regarding the Government's decisions affecting Gariūnai Market's operations, the leader in e-commerce is inviting all sellers to move online and offers special promotional terms for new seller accounts.

Growing sales and coverage of all Baltic States markets

The pandemic is affecting businesses worldwide and setting forth its own rules. Companies unable to operate, as usual, turn to online selling as their last hope. For more than a year, Pigu.lt has been offering such a possibility across all the Baltic States. The platform has already gained more than 2400 new sellers who added over 600 thousand products to the online catalogue.

The statistics show great results. At the beginning of the quarantine, Pigu.lt had an 80% increase in sales compared to the same period in 2019. The income generated during the most significant annual sales events was nearly double. Entrepreneurs who joined the online selling platform claim to have already sold goods for more than 15 million euro.

Promotional terms

According to Dainius Liulys, General Manager of Pigu.lt, the entrepreneurs joining the online platform get a chance to revive the sales that have been stopped by the quarantine and receive special privileges.

"We understand the complex situation most companies are facing. Both the quarantine and the recent decisions by the Government have made them uncertain of their future. We aim to ease the transition to online selling, ensuring a steady flow of customers, and it is presently the most popular and safest choice for all people. We can already show several successful market traders finding their customers, expanding their sales channels and increasing their sales. We welcome all small and medium-sized enterprises to join us online," says D. Liulys, General Manager of Pigu.lt.

To start trading on Pigu.lt, a particular registration form must be completed (click here to view the form). The staff of Pigu.lt will contact the applicant, supply all the necessary information, consult and help them start selling online. Pigu.lt has expanded its team and can quickly help connect a growing number of Baltic businesses that strive to come online. On average, about several hundred stores per month come online via Pigu.lt.

All companies that contact Pigu.lt now and sign agreements before the end of May this year, will be exempt from the monthly fee for 3 months and will be able to sell in all the Baltic States. Only the logistics and commission fees set forth in the agreement will apply.

Gariūnai Going Online

Denisas Jegorovas, an entrepreneur selling fashion goods, such as clothing and shoes, says that the current situation is daunting. Even though he is still paying the rent and keeping his store at Gariūnai Market, he has little hope of the lifted restrictions and his customers returning. The entrepreneur cancelled his business license back in February. Even though he has been cautious of online selling until now, Jevgenijus is about to join the Pigu.lt platform.

"Everything was much clearer during the first quarantine. Now, we are plagued by uncertainty. Our customer flow decreased greatly last November. We have been closed since December with no hope to reopen. I still pay the rent; I have obligations and a family to take care of. I must turn to new solutions. This is why I am getting ready to start selling online," says Denisas Jegorovas.

Being a small-sized business, the entrepreneur is happy to know that joining the platform and selling his goods will not be as difficult as it might have seemed at first.

Currently, more than 2400 stores have joined the e-commerce platform managed by Pigu Corporate Group in the Baltic States: Pigu.lt in Lithuania, 220.lv in Latvia and Kaup24.ee in Estonia.
