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.
