Internet-based Services

What brick-and-mortar based services come to your mind that can be readily offered over the Internet for a local customer base that do not have access to or willingness for using credit card/paypal for payment? (Note: This is different from Internet services such as web-development, hosting etc).

A good, creative answer to the above question can give you a very interesting idea for starting up a small business of your own which efficiently utilizes cheap Internet access available to most middle-class households today in urban Pakistan and the ability to accept payments via Easypaisa from Telenor.

The flip side of the equation is that there aren’t many EP account holders as of today and the fact that the full-year transaction limit is only Rs 120,000 which is just too small.

But the best starts are almost always humble.
