The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) on Friday launched its OneStore City app which will allow locally produced products of small to medium businesses to be made available online.
The DOST said the app is intended to help both businesses and consumers due to the difficulties brought about by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
“The new application for OneStore will provide a wider reach for locally produced products of micro, small, and medium enterprises that were assisted by the DOST in the regions through the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program or SETUP,” the DOST said.
“The app will enable easy transaction between sellers and buyers in the country since delivery will no longer be limited to logistic partners, thereby providing income to displaced workers amidst the COVID 19 pandemic,” it added.
The DOST said OneStore products will not only be available in urban areas but in all areas that can be reached by local transport.
