JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Electronic trading platform Bukalapak says it is monitoring the development of medical devices prices, including oxygen cylinders and oximeters, which are sold at the marketplace.

AVP Marketplace Quality Bukalapak Baskara Aditama said the transactions for the two medical devices had doubled compared to last week.

"To anticipate this, we routinely monitor the market prices for these items so that we can keep the prices set by sellers at Bukalapak to always be within reasonable limits, so that people can get them at affordable prices," Baskara said, in an official statement, as quoted by Antara on Thursday (07/08/2021).

Bukalapak is a marketplace where each seller can set prices and trading strategies. However, the trading platform also asks sellers to comply with applicable regulations, both Bukalapak's policies, legal and government regulations.

"Selling goods at inappropriate prices is also included in the violations that we have set, so of course we will take action," he said.

Users can report sellers who charge abnormal prices through the BukaHelp feature.

A few days ago, the platform also supported the Decree of the Indonesian Minister of Health on the Highest Retail Price (HET) for Medicines During the Corona Virus Disease 19 (COVID-19) Pandemic.
