"Ramadan is one of the most important periods of the year in this region, and we continuously notice its significant impact on user behavior across all sectors. Spending typically increases during the holy month, and our users tend to browse for items that they can purchase to upgrade their homes or lifestyle in a more cost-effective way than purchasing them brand new,” commented Helmut Bracun, General Manager of Classifieds at dubizzle.
