It isn’t easy to launch an e-commerce venture in the Philippines as compared to establishing one in the States. Because compared to Americans, Filipinos are less trusting when it comes to online selling website or ordering online in general. It seems presumptive but very risky and for it to become a success, there is a lot to be taken into consideration.
For Lazada though, it didn’t seem as such a struggle. After all, in as early as one year in the public market, it has already gained a lot of recognition including one from the Golden Globe Annual Awards from whom it received the honor of being the Best Online Shopping Mall for 2013.
The local e-commerce industry was prosperous last year and this year, it’s definitely aiming for an even bigger number in sales. And Lazada has become a very influential tool in making this a reality. It has widened its scope even more adding not just items in its already wide array of products but also expanding in customer coverage with an official partnership with LBC and 2GO. Both delivery companies when combined sum up to thousands of service centers that gives the e-commerce website a bigger advantage as compared to its direct competitors.
To add to its already extensive list of services, it now has a customer hotline available 7 days a week including holidays. Return your order free of charge and get it either exchanged or refunded in 14 days. That’s like saying you have up to two weeks to try out a new dress and still get it exchanged if you retain its tag and new condition. For as long as you maintain the condition of product when it was delivered and have with you everything else that came with it, then you are eligible to return your item with no charge.
The shopping mall isn’t as local as it makes itself seem. It has ventures in other countries spread out in Southeast Asia including Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand. A very prominent online venture builder called Rocket Internet that has over 100 successful ventures worldwide owns it. It definitely has a great team behind it if it is capable of creating an online atmosphere perfect for Filipinos to feel comfortable to shop from. Besides providing employment, it has helped put our local e-commerce industry in the same pedestal as our neighboring countries.
This Halloween, it offers an every better selection of discounted items up to more than half of its original price. Who knew the Halloween season could be so fun and invigorating financially speaking. You can have a bigger chance of getting the best promo offers if you subscribe to its newsletter. Not only do you get a special treat by being one of the first to know but you also get a P200 voucher for free just for signing up.
It’s a pretty good reward for the very little effort that you did. So why not jump in to the latest fad and make your online shopping an experience worth remembering each time?
