Rene Menendez, founder and CEO of the platform, told Elmundo.sv that "... Click Box was born with the idea of creating a virtual space where different businesses could sell, becoming another channel of distribution and effective sales. With the quarantine, we became the solution for many."

The article adds that "... During the quarantine, one of the items that grew the most was personal care, and one of the most sought-after products was hair cutting machines, as well as alcohol gels and masks, while now - in the first phase of reactivation - there are beauty items, consumer technology (such as hearing aids and mice) and toys."

Directors of the company, which entered the Salvadoran market in 2019, said that they already ship orders throughout the country using their own fleet, accepting cash and card payments, in addition to business facilities.
