They are all internet marketplaces where you can find all your needs and the most famous brands. 

These websites have both Turkish and foreign brands in their inventories. You can find more than you are looking for on each of these websites.

The biggest one, Trendyol, recently opened a multilanguage website (including English and German languages).

Yemeksepeti is the best and fastest solution for your food orders. These services deliver your orders free of charge within 30 minutes.

Yemeksepeti is the oldest food delivery service. Nearly all restaurants are subscribers to Yemeksepeti. Even in the smallest cities, you can order food with this portal.

Getir is the second-best food delivery service in Turkey, and it is the biggest competitor of Yemeksepeti.

These services do not charge any delivery expenses.

Visiting supermarkets is also fun in Turkey.

For basic grocery shopping, Yemeksepeti Banabi and Getir Buyuk are the best options. They deliver your grocery orders between 15-30 minutes in most cities.

For regular house shopping, Trendyol Market Section is another option. Trendyol is partnering with two big market chains (Migros and Happycenter). Additionally, many other producers also sell their products at Trendyol.

Electronics

Trendyol has the most variety because all producers and shops list their products on these shopping websites.

I also visit Teknosa, Vatan Computer, or Media Markt websites to see their prices.

Sometimes, I visit these electronics retail stores to get an idea of what I should buy. Then I purchase the product online because it is usually cheaper. 

Online shopping is usually cheaper than in-store purchases because retail companies also add their in-store expenses to the price of the product.

Kitapyurdu is the best Turkish site for English books by Turkish writers. It has a good collection of English and German books. You can find many books in Kitapyurdu in rare languages like Ottoman, Bosnian, or even Somalian.

Pandora, İlknokta, and Hepsiburada are other reliable online alternatives for buying books in Turkey.

Event Tickets

Biletix is the most common and well-known website for events, activities, and concerts. Biletix is the Turkish subsidiary of Ticketmaster. I never needed another website other than Biletix.

Biletino and Passo are alternative websites for Biletix.

Second-hand products

There are many second-hand shopping websites in Turkey. Sahibinden is the oldest and most used one. There are many professional sellers on this website.

In Dolap, Letgo, there are not many professional sellers. These websites operate like garage sales.

Cars and Property

Sahibinden and Hurriyet Emlak are the top search engines for browsing houses or cars on sale in Turkey.

Turkish Websites commonly do not have English language support. Yet, you can translate and use them easily with Google’s free Translate tool. Click here to see my hacks on how to use Google Translate.
