Motorbikes, vegetables, iPhones, artwork, or even land on which to build a house – a quick browse through website 7Makara.com gives the impression of a Cambodian eBay or Amazon. The difference, however, is that you can’t complete the transaction from the convenience of your bedroom. In a country where cash is king, online classified advertising websites like 7Makara stand in for e-commerce – the practice of buying goods over the internet through a middleman with credit or debit cards.
