The high value of Iran’s second-hand goods market
The second-hand market in Iran is a big market. The statistics provided by Reza Arbabian are relevant to the current market, but this market has many potential assets that remain unused.
Arbabian says: “According to our statistics, in many countries in the world, one out of every 2 people uses and sells second-hand goods, but in Iran only one out of every ten uses them. . ”
Arbabian believes that the value of second-hand goods has not been revealed to many Iranians and they’re still interested in buying new ones
While buying and selling second-hand goods helps a lot in the family economy. Of course, after the highs and lows of sanctions and price volatility, the demand market has boomed as people have lost their purchasing power.
The use of second-hand goods can replace imported low-quality goods. If they return to the market cycle, they will prevent capital loss. In our society, the culture of second-hand goods needs to be further institutionalized.
The culture of second-hand use is not institutionalized
“We launched Sheypoor three years ago,” says the founder of Sheypoor. At that time there was no positive and pervasive view of second-hand goods.
That’s why we had to first break the taboos of using these goods. That is why we have incurred a lot of expenses in this area, and we have come to profit too late because we have entered an area where there is still no positive outlook.
But now things are different. The financial pressures that people are experiencing as a result of the economic problems, have led to a boom in the second-hand goods market, with people moving to their warehouses and selling unused items. »
Things are different now. The financial pressures that people are facing as a result of the economic problems that have plagued households have led to a boom in the second-hand commodity market, with people going to their warehouses and selling non-disposable items.
“Online businesses and increase in the sale of second-hand goods on the Internet have fueled this market,” Arbabian says. Now people from all over Iran can communicate with one another and buy and sell goods.
This market can be very varied; maybe when we talk about the second-hand market, usually clothing and furniture and home appliances come to our minds, but in fact anything that was once used and is no longer working can be used Be others.
“Even medical supplies that are sometimes not needed by a physician for various reasons are sold to another physician in another city.”
Breaking the taboo of buying second-hand clothes
Iranians are still susceptible to second-hand clothing, but these sensitivities are slowly disappearing. The Sheypoor CEO believes that commodities like apparel should work on specialized websites.
Businesses that specialize in clothing have already achieved some success, but products such as mobile, television, furniture and automobiles are now easily bought and sold.
There is a lot of vacancy left in the market for Iranian needs. Arbabian goes on to say: “There is a big market ahead of us, so it must be grouped and every business specializing in a segment of the market.
Although there are currently few specialized websites, there is room for many businesses to operate. Groupings The market for needs is very high and can work on all of these markets.”
Founder of Sheypoor and his colleagues have been working for two years on the culture of secondhand use because they believe that people must first become familiar with this market and this culture in order to use it.
“We have to come to the realization that paying attention to the second-hand product that still works, that is, we know the value of our money,” Arbabian says.
“When you can buy a product at a lower price, why pay several times as much for a new product?”
