The Department of Science and Technology (DOST)-Ifugao recently spearheaded the opening of the oneSTore hub at the Mila's Bakeshop here. The oneSTore hub is a one-stop-shop physical store where products of DOST-assisted, small and medium enterprises in the province will be consolidated and marketed. It monitors sales and feedback, does monthly reports; and carries out payment processes and delivery within the time span as agreed upon with DOST.
A oneSTore hub should conform to the criteria like private or public entity having business and willing to engage in e-Commerce and location is within urban area where courier companies or ship ports are available. Computer and internet access is readily available 24/7, has warehousing facility of at least 20 square meter floor area which will also serve as display area of products.
