RURAL SELLERS EMPOWERED BY SHOPEE & KPLB TO SELL ONLINE

Published by Lavinesh @ 06/12/2019

Shopee is working closely with the Malaysian government to equip local traders with the skills, knowledge and opportunities to bring their products online. Last month, Shopee inked a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Rural Development’s (KPLB) appointed e-commerce enabler, Elokal, to ensure that rural entrepreneurs are not left behind. The Desamall@KPLB official store was launched, featuring locally made products like sambal, dodol, books, baju kurung and more.

Following the success, the Ministry is launching an automotive specialty store on Shopee. Known as Desaauto@KPLB, the initiative is expected to benefit over 200 rural entrepreneurs manufacturing and distributing automotive parts such as tyres, spare parts and engine oil. This will give them the opportunity to reach new potential customers across the country and the region through Shopee’s cross-border service, Shopee International Platform. As a start, 100 products will be made available on the store.

The launch pf Desaauto@KPLB was held in conjunction with the announcement of Shopee 12.12 Birthday Sale which runs from 28 November to 12 December. Shopee has lined up a cake-load of entertainment and promotions to thank Malaysians for their never-ending support, including daily RM12 deals, free shipping with RM12 minimum spend and 12 million Shopee coins up for grabs on Shopee Catch.
