ikman.lk now provides sellers with an opportunity to reach a wider audience and sell items with no hassle, while buyers can receive a product directly to his/her doorstep without having to leave the comfort of their homes. The delivery has to be pre-arranged by the buyer and seller with ikman.lk only acting as the delivery service provider ‘ikman delivers’ coordinates the process of pickup and delivery for a nominal fee as low as Rs.200 per kilogram.
Buyers and sellers have the option of negotiating which party would bear the courier charges and unlike other third party courier service providers, ikman.lk takes the responsibility of receiving the cash from the buyer and depositing it into the seller’s bank account. Buyers also get an opportunity to inspect the goods prior to the purchase, hence minimizing the risk of fraud.

While proving our steadfast commitment to serve the online community of Sri Lanka, our main objective is to promote ikman.lk as a hassle-free and reliable medium for trading. The introduction of this service now makes ikman.lk the only classified advertising site in Sri Lanka to offer such a service thus eliminating the virtual distance between the buyer and seller.”
