The country’s all e-commerce platforms will have to be registered with the Ministry of Commerce by the next two months to run the businesses properly.

The government came up with the decision during a regular weekly cabinet meeting held at the secretariat in Dhaka on Thursday.

While briefing the media after the meeting, Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam said if anyone wants to run e-commerce business, he or she will have to deposit a certain amount of money to Bangladesh Bank as security.

If any consumer is cheated by any e-commerce company, he or she will be compensated from the fund, he said.

The government made such a decision when hundreds of customers have been cheated by some e-commerce platforms like Evaly, Eorange, Dhamaka, etc.
