While B2C is a regular marketplace. The data is kept under constant review to provide an efficient method of management. The company also plans to make a drop shipping supply method possible.

Also, there is a white label – concerns exactly the information service. It can be used by other general-purpose marketplaces to organize trade. Mriyar provides ordered information for this purpose, organizes management and search. The platform partner shows the results to the end-user under its brand.
