Collectco – “Click and collect” model

Last week, I bought a product from Lazada. Upon receiving it, I realized that the product is not working. Thus, I decided to return it. After checking on Lazada’s return process and policy, I submitted my request to return and one of the option I pickup is “Collectco”. I have no clue about it. All I know is I can conveniently drop the product to the nearest selected collection points which is Caring Pharmacy inside Sunway Velocity, which is just 5 min walking distance from my office, Sunway Velocity Designer Office.

Providing many collection point is indeed this is a brilliant idea. This convenience helps to speed up return process and as a result improve the service in a e-Commerce business.

Vivy Yusof: Meet Malaysia’s Youngest E-Commerce Mogul

Article by Carla Thomas on 9th August 2017

Vivy Yusof, clad in a gorgeous silky cream-colored headscarf, doesn’t have time for stereotypes. She’s too busy running a retail empire in her home country of Malaysia, which landed her a spot on FORBES 30 Under 30 Asia list this year.

“I think there’s a misconception there, that Muslim women are oppressed,” says 29-year-old Yusof, who made the decision to wear the hijab a few years ago.

It’s an expensive misconception to have.

The booming modest wear industry is estimated to be worth $368 billion by 2021, making Muslimah-savvy entrepreneurs like Yusof a prescient and profitable force to be reckoned with in the Asian retail space.

Today, her e-commerce platform FashionValet is a major player in Malaysia, and Yusof’s own hijab brand, dUCk, is among the most popular scarves on the global market.

“I feel like women are supposed to go out there, whatever God gives you, your talents, use them for the good of the world. And still look presentable!” A sentiment women around the world can all get behind.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian e-commerce industry has grown steadily after its boom in the mid-2000s and is now a RM24.6bil business, said iPrice Group.

IPrice Group is a meta-search e-commerce website which enables Malaysian shoppers to connect with hundreds of e-commerce merchants and discover products, compare prices and get the best deals.

In a statement, iPrice said Lazada ranked as the top e-commerce company in Malaysia, followed by Zalora and 11 Street, based on their online traffic, staff numbers and followers on social media applications such as SimilarWeb, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

It said Lazada’s website received an average of 29 million visitors on a monthly basis while 11 Street received nine million visitors monthly.

“These three top e-commerce companies were all founded in South-East Asia.

“Although e-commerce websites originating from outside the South-East Asia region such as eBay and Sephora are also accessible to Malaysians, regional or locally based e-commerce sites seemed to be more successful, probably due to their on-the-ground knowledge which gives them a higher advantage,” it said.

Meanwhile, took the top spot in the list of Malaysian-based e-commerce companies, with its website recording an average traffic of 6.33 billion during the second quarter of 2017.

“Established in 1998, is probably the oldest Malaysian based e-commerce company and it remains the most popular commerce-to-commerce platform among Malaysians as they were among the first to spot the e-commerce potential,” it said.

IPrice also said that local fashion e-commerce websites, such as Fashion Valet and Poplook, were also gaining popularity among Malaysians.

“These local brands thrive mainly through social media pages such as Instagram, where they can easily feature their products via images and partnerships with popular local celebrities and brands,” it said.

It added that fashion brands in Malaysia had been seeing the benefit of adopting the e-commerce model in running their operations as it enabled them to scale their business efficiently according to consumers’ needs. – Bernama
