Homesick and Homebound East Malaysians to Receive Free Shipping on Lazada in Time for Gawai and Kaamatan Festivals

Special RM10 Free Shipping voucher can be used for purchases delivered to East Malaysia, also helping Sabahans and Sarawakians send love back home

KUALA LUMPUR, 28 May 2021 – Many East Malaysians, especially those working and living in West Malaysia, have been unable to visit their hometowns and reunite with loved ones during the nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO) 3.0. To help the Sabahan and Sarawakian communities send love back home for Hari Gawai and the Kaamatan Festival, Lazada Malaysia will be supplying additional platform-wide Free Shipping voucher on East Malaysian deliveries.

Kayla Tan, a Sabahan as well as the Head of Innovation and Special Projects at Lazada Malaysia, said that: “A lot of East Malaysians, like myself, have not been able to meet our families and friends back home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For some of us, we have been away from home for more than a year now and the homesickness can be overwhelming at times, especially during Hari Gawai and the Kaamatan Festival.”

“Throughout the pandemic, my fellow East Malaysian friends and I find ourselves shopping more frequently online, not only for personal groceries, but also to send essentials and gifts back home to our parents and friends in Sabah and Sarawak. It’s unsurprising that Lazada saw online purchases and delivery to East Malaysia significantly increasing year-on-year across the nationwide MCO 3.0. The increasing demand has inspired Lazada to give back to the local communities by providing special East Malaysia Free Shipping voucher,” added Tan.

From 30 May until 6 June 2021, Lazada users can collect the RM10 East Malaysia Free Shipping voucher*, with no minimum spend, on the Free Shipping page on the Lazada app or via this link (http://lzd.co/LazadaMYFreeShipping). The platform-wide voucher can be used for purchases delivered to East Malaysian addresses*.

This enables Lazada to support the homesick East Malaysian communities in West Malaysia, while also aiding those who are homebound in East Malaysia to get everyday essentials safely from home. The special voucher will be valid throughout the Lazada 6.6 SHOPMANIA Sale too, which is ongoing now until 6 June 2021, where all online shoppers can collect 6.6 Free Shipping vouchers every day. On 4 June to 6 June 2021, there are also RM60 Lazada Bonus and RM0.66 Crazy Flash Sale deals during the 6.6 Sale for online shoppers to stretch their Ringgit further.

“This initiative is expected to benefit our local consumers, while also stimulating the digital economy for businesses during these uncertain times, especially for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). We are calling out to all local MSMEs to future-proof your business online. Lazada stands ready to support homegrown small businesses through our Pintar Niaga stimulus package. Join us and take the digital leap forward,” said Sherry Tan, Chief Business Officer, Lazada Malaysia.

The Pintar Niaga stimulus package offers 0% commission and listing fees for local MSMEs, while providing easy access to Lazada University’s comprehensive step-by-step training, Seller Centre’s innovative tools, free RM300 advertising credits, free high-traffic exposure slots, Free Shipping voucher incentives, 90-day dedicated support, and more.
