Shopee Answers Call to Lower Cost of Living with 9.9 Super Shopping Day

Over the past year, the Government has rolled out a number of initiatives to reduce the cost of living in Malaysia. Its recent initiative is the establishment of the National Action Committee on e-commerce by the National Cost of Living Action Council. The aim is to promote and strengthen the use of e-commerce, thereby eliminating the role of middlemen in a bid to lower the cost of consumer goods.

In view of this, the Government has been engaging closely with Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, on how it can best alleviate the rising cost of living for Malaysians. One of Shopee’s efforts is to work alongside Malaysian retailers by lowering the barrier of entry to the digital economy. Additionally, the cost of operating a business online is much lower. In turn, Shopee encourages retailers to share their cost savings with shoppers, thereby making online shopping more affordable for consumers. As a result, consumers see themselves saving an average of 20% on their daily necessities when they shop on Shopee on a regular day, with the potential to save up to 90% during major shopping events like 9.9 Super Shopping Day.

Taking place from 19 August to 9 September 2019, the campaign offers greater deals and discounts across categories from brands such as Nutox, HP, L'Oréal, Vinda, Photobook Malaysia, Enfagrow, Universal Traveller, realme, MR DIY and Nestle. To further promote the adoption of e-commerce and encourage Malaysians to take advantage of these savings, Shopee is bringing down the minimum spend for free shipping to RM9.

Welcoming the initiative, Song Hock Koon, Director of E-Commerce, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation, said, “One of MDEC’s objectives is to encourage Malaysians to become immersed in the digital ecosystem, as such initiatives like these will help accelerate adoption in a sustainable and cost-effective manner. We are always pleased to collaborate and support industry moves and trust that this latest initiative will further inspire digital entrepreneurship efforts.”

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee said, “Shopee’s mission has always been to impact local communities on a meaningful and sustainable level through initiatives such as our sales campaigns that will allow Malaysians to continue shopping and stocking up on necessities without breaking the bank. At the same time, I am happy to announce Shopee’s partnership with our latest brand ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo. Having him on board is truly a milestone for us. This makes us more than just a shopping platform as we continue to inspire users and connect them with the biggest stars and celebrities in the world.”

At the launch of 9.9 Super Shopping Day held at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Shopee revealed its newest brand ambassador, Cristiano Ronaldo. As one of the greatest athletes, he is an inspiration to many and his dedication to football resonates with the deep commitment Shopee has towards its users. He will be working with Shopee across its seven markets in a wide range of activities to engage and inspire people in the region.

The 9.9 Super Shopping Day will feature three weeks of super promotions and entertainment as well as exclusive privileges with leading industry players:

Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing mobile classified marketplaces, kicked off a nationwide pro-social effort today, #MYLocalWira, as part of a month-long effort that runs until August 31 in conjunction with Malaysia’s upcoming 62nd Independence Day.

To celebrate the occasion, #MYLocalWira calls on Malaysians’ well-known spirit of generosity, with the support of notable Malaysians – squash legend Datuk Nicol David, Malaysia’s first female ONE Championship mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and Global Citizen Ambassador Ann Osman, international model and renowned fashion and beauty entrepreneur Amber Chia, professional motorsport athlete and Malaysia's "Drift Queen” Leona Chin, world-class diver Leong Mun Yee and national gymnast Farah Ann. Each of these individuals has contributed several personal items to be sold on Carousell, with the proceeds going to a charitable cause.

“Many Malaysians are blessed with more than we need, while others need a helping hand. With the #MYLocalWira campaign, we are working with prominent individuals to sell their preloved items on Carousell in a generous act of ‘giving back’ to the Malaysian public who have supported them for years. We also expect that fans will find it very meaningful to acquire a personal item that has played a role in their hero’s career. With #MYLocalWira, we honour the Malaysians who make us proud, and hope their shining example will inspire others to do great things,” said Mr Tang Siew Wai, Country Head, Malaysia, Carousell Malaysia.

The full proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit Parents without Partners, a charitable organisation established to help single parents in need. Funds are raised primarily through the sale of preloved items at their thrift store, Jumble Station, which relies on public donations, and the proceeds from #MYLocalWira will help support expenses such as rent, groceries and school supplies.
