NINJA Van Malaysia, 7-Eleven Malaysia Holdings Bhd and Razer Merchant Services (formerly MOLPay Sdn Bhd) are partnering to expand opportunities with Razer Parcel Plus, by allowing e-commerce players to process their parcels with Ninja Van at selected 7-Eleven outlets.
The tripartite partnership will encourage e-commerce entrepreneurs to bolster their businesses and be part of the booming digital economy.
It will also allow Ninja Van to effectively achieve its core selling point of convenience, said country head Adzim Halim.
“By allowing shippers to process their parcels at any 7-Eleven out lets which are al ready well-distributed across Malaysia, we are not only unlocking more opportunities for shippers to enjoy the reliable services offered by Ninja Van, but it also helps connect businesses regardless of size to expand their reach throughout South-East Asia, one delightful delivery at a time,” he said in a statement.
Razer Parcel Plus will grant shippers access to a myriad of services offered by Ninja Van that could boost and further expand their overall business performance.
The initiative has been rolled out in 7-Eleven outlets across Klang Valley, Johor Baru and Penang since November this year and will eventually cover all 2200 outlets throughout Malaysia to ensure smooth coordination for the shippers.
Under the partnership, 7-Eleven is foreseen to receive more footfall, driving higher sales at its stores, while bringing additional benefits to shippers.
For shippers to use Razer Parcel Plus, all deliveries must first be created through Ninja Van’s dashboard which is available online.
At this juncture, the service is limited to small parcels only (80cm cumulative).
Shippers will then complete the transaction by transferring funds through Razer Merchant Services, which can be linked to any preferred credit or debit card.
There will be no additional charges to enjoy this feature. Recipients can request their parcels to be directed to a pick-up or drop off points instead of the typical home deliveries.
Razer Merchant Services co-founder and CEO Eng Sheng Guan said Razer Parcel Plus can potentially replace cash on delivery services as it complements Razer Cash’s (e-wallet) capability to accept payments at 7-Eleven.
“Razer Parcel Plus is a universal platform that works 24 hours for all e-commerce, marketplace, logistic providers and the public at large, where everyone can enjoy a seamless shipping experience,” he added.
