Malaysia’s largest online market place, Lazada has made plenty of headway into pioneering and pushing the boundaries of the digital shopping experience in the South East Asian region – especially Malaysia. The goal? To push Malaysia’s digital economy into new heights of course. It only makes sense, digital is the future.
In that sense Malaysia’s online shopping economy is thriving stronger than ever. More people are shopping online now than before and the fact that Lazada is Malaysia’s fifth most visited site is a testament to how much Malaysians shop online – especially on Lazada. Of course Lazada is not the only online market place in Malaysia and that is also something to consider – if there are already so many people on Lazada, what about other platforms.
With the boom in online shopping as well there is an inevitable increase in the demand for digital entrepreneurs. The increasing demand for the variety of things you can find in online marketplaces also opens up plenty of room for online entrepreneurs to not just grow, but to innovate. That is why Lazada is making it easier and more ideal for online sellers with their new #EveryoneCanSell programme.
So, what is it? The #EveryoneCanSell programme, in Lazada’s words is a fully integrated e-commerce programme to encourage the growth of local Small and Medium Enterprises (SME). In theory it should help you, as an online merchant understand your business environment better. The programme seeks to not just educate online merchants regarding the business side of things but also to provide the necessary tools and solutions to propel their businesses to greater heights.
For this programme Lazada has formed a partnership with SME Corp Malaysia, Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) , Maybank, and Telekom Malaysia (TM). Lazada hopes that this programme would bring more than 50,000 new merchants to the marketplace by 2018. That will also contribute to Malaysia’s aim to double Malaysia’s eCommerce growth from 10.8% to 20.8% by the year 2020.
Lazada and its partners in the #EveryoneCanSell programme hopes to enhance their support for SMEs to move into the digital environment. They hope that this programme would make digital transformations and transitions for SMEs more seamless in the sense that they do not lose their competitiveness.. This programme is also a perfect platform for asipiring merchants to be able to participate in Lazada’s upcoming Online Revolution 2017 later in November. For more information regarding the #EveryoneCanSell programme can be found here in their website. Press release after the break.

KUALA LUMPUR, 13 September 2017 – Leading e-commerce platform, Lazada Malaysia, today announced the launch of the #EveryoneCanSell Programme, an end-to-end, fully integrated eCommerce programme to further spur the growth of local Small and Medium Enterprises (SME).

Y.B. Datuk Haji Ahmad Haji Maslan, Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) at Malaysia’s biggest e-commerce event, Lazada’s E-Commerce Seller Conference 2017 said, “With digitalisation disrupting businesses, SMEs’ adoption of technology has taken on an even greater urgency than ever before. As Malaysia continues its path towards becoming a fully digital economy, businesses here must continue their evolution to be a part of it. Thus, having e-commerce market leaders such as Lazada Malaysia to help SMEs continue their online growth, will greatly assist in realising the Government’s aim of doubling the e-commerce growth from 10.8% to 20.8% by 2020.”
Datuk Haji Ahmad Haji Maslan also added that the SME sector remains an important pillar of Malaysia’s economy as they contribute almost 36% to the gross domestic product (GDP). He mentioned that the #EveryoneCanSell Programme will be able to prepare SMEs with the right ecosystem to compete globally through the Digital Free Trade Zone which was recently launched this year.
“Our strategic partnership with esteemed companies and agencies in Malaysia will further enhance our support for SMEs in the areas of productivity, innovation and capability upgrading. We hope to boost SMEs’ capabilities when they capitalise on #EveryoneCanSell’s holistic digital ecosystem, so they remain competitive online. This programme will also be a great training ground for local businesses to upgrade themselves with the right tools and skills required for our upcoming campaign of the year in November, Online Revolution 2017,” said Hans-Peter Ressel, Chief Executive Officer of Lazada Malaysia.
