The world is coming online and with that, habits are changing, most notably how we purchase goods and services. In the past, you had to crowd with everyone else doing their last minute holiday shopping but now you can get practically everything you need with a few simple taps.
Malaysia’s no different and the meteoric rise of e-commerce is almost scary. But every revolution has its victims and with such a drastic shift in how people discover and purchase goods, some start to wonder what’s going to happen to all the local brick and mortar small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
Lazada Malaysia is launching a brand new “social commerce channel” and it’s called Lazada TV. And from what they’ve said, it does look like Lazada’s trying to bring teleshopping to the internet.
Malaysians love to do their shopping online for greater savings and convenience. To reward its almost 1 million MaxisONE Club customers, Maxis wants to provide the best online shopping deals by partnering with the top e-commerce platforms from AirAsia to Zalora. This includes up to 50% discount at over 500 e-commerce sites and exciting RM1 flash deals every month.
If you’ve ever ordered something online, we’re sure you’re acquainted with the hassle involved with picking up your parcels; especially if you’re not at home to receive it. BOXiT, is here to help fix that.
