ALANGOO is the first and only marketplace with a mission to provide an opportunity for Persian artisans and designers to introduce and sell their pieces worldwide. ALANGOO was designed for creatives with diverse backgrounds and has the largest diaspora audience.
Our platform provides sellers with access to their diaspora throughout the world, and in contrast to bigger marketplaces where the artist is lost among thousands of other sellers, ALANGOO allows sellers to acquire attention, recognition and success. We promote our Sellers and feature them on social media for free, while larger marketplaces and smaller platform collect fees for such a service. ALANGOO allows Sellers to have more power over their shops through the personalization of their profiles that allow them to share their story and message, functionalities such as creating coupons, discounting item prices and uploading your own photographs and content for your products.
ALANGOO genuinely cares about the culture and messages of our community and it shows! We share similar values that provide a positive, inclusive atmosphere. Your success is our success.
Although ALANGOO is user-generated content, we reserve the right to remove images that are not presentable in terms of quality, and ask our Sellers to provide high quality images. Sellers must introduce their ALANGOO shop at least once on all social media platforms that they use.
