In 2012, GittiGidiyor's transaction volume rose by 46 percent, whereas this year's figures mark 80 percent growth by the end of the year. The fast-growing e-trade firm provides instantaneous purchasing possibilities for nearly five million items broken down into over 5,000 categories.

A whopping 83 percent of those transactions are conducted by first-time users.
