Bangladesh, over 10 shop­ping web­sites are of­fer­ing sac­ri­fi­cial an­i­mals on­line this Eid. The por­tals follow a post-de­liv­ery pay­ment sys­tem. You need to place an or­der up to five days be­fore the de­sired de­liv­ery date. How­ever, some web­sites also take in­stant emer­gency or­ders. The majority of an­i­mals are sourced from cat­tle farms in Gopal­gonj, Tan­gail, Rang­pur and Nars­ingdi.

Se­juti, an en­tre­pre­neur who set up an on­line cat­tle farm, claimed that she had sold 25 cows in the pre­vi­ous year and has a tar­get of show­cas­ing 1,000 cows on her shop­ping por­tal this year. The tar­get cus­tomers of th­ese web­sites are Bangladeshi ex­pa­tri­ate who are un­able to per­form the rit­ual since they live abroad.
