Online Shopping on the Rise

More and more Iranians are clicking themselves into the world of consumerism. Through their smartphones, computers and tablets, people purchased up to 610,000 billion rials (about $18 billion at market exchange rate) worth of goods in the last Iranian year (March 2015-16), according to the deputy minister of industries, mining and trade, Ali Asghar Tofiq. “The figure stood at 500,000 billion rials ($14.7 billion) and 140,000 billion rials ($4.11 billion) in the two preceding years,” he was quoted as saying by Mehr News Agency.
