JadoPado started business in 2011. In 2014, the e-commerce website resorted to diversification and became an online marketplace.

The JadoPado team will be moving into executing great new work now, said a statement released by the company, adding that "our grand experiment is at an end after 2,420 days."

But don't worry about the pre-orders. Orders that have already been placed will be fulfilled by sellers. If a seller is unable to process or fulfill your order, it will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund, the company assured.

"We will release any amount that has been pre-authorised and it will be credited back to your account by your card issuer," said a JadoPado statement.

The company put its value at $102 million in November 2015. Last year, the registered sellers on its website zoomed past 80 percent.

The acquisition of JadoPado comes close on the heels of Amazon buying Souq.com.
