Purchasing power is spread over the age range of 35 years and over because they are classified as newly established household heads. "Who is our market? It's easy for children, those who fill our market, the purchasing power of under 25 is limited due to the age of the students and the greatest purchasing power at the age of 35-39, they have big purchasing power in e commerce," he said in Jakarta , Saturday (5/8/2017).
