E-commerce platform Lazada is holding a month long online bazaar, Lazat Bazaar, in conjunction with the Ramadan fasting season today.

It will also offer same-day deliveries for hot meals and freshly baked goods from local-favourite stalls and markets in selected areas across the Klang Valley.

“Many bazaar sellers and traders who rely on the Ramadan period to sustain their livelihoods have been worrying about potential loss in sales due to the ongoing pandemic.

Through the Lazat Bazaar, we aim to ease their hardships by bringing them online and supporting them with exposure and traffic on our eCommerce platform. The initiative will not only help to sustain, but also enable their businesses to grow this year,” Head of Traffic Lazada Malaysia, Susan Too said in a statement today.

“We have onboarded bazaar merchants across Subang Jaya, Shah Alam, and Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) onto our leading digital platform and empowered them with a robust logistics infrastructure to fulfil deliveries for buka puasa necessities in mere hours,” said Olivier Petra, Chief Logistics Officer, Lazada Malaysia.

Malaysians can easily access the page by searching the keyword “Lazat Bazaar” or clicking the “Food & Beverage” homepage icon on the Lazada app, as well as via this link: http://lzd.co/LazadaMalaysia.

In addition to authentic local delicacies, online shoppers will also be able to enjoy up to 50% off and Buy 1 Free 1 deals for fresh ingredients and discount vouchers on the Lazat Bazaar.

As part of its ongoing efforts to help local small businesses, the e-commerce platform also rolled out the Pintar Niaga stimulus package since March as a continuation of Pakej Kedai Pintar 2.0 that was launched earlier this year.

The Pintar Niaga stimulus package offers 0% commission and listing fees for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), while providing them 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.

“Through our extended stimulus package, Pintar Niaga, SMEs will be able to future-proof their business by coming onto Lazada with zero set-up cost. We are committed to supporting the local SME community by flattening the barriers of entry for homegrown entrepreneurs to digitalise and benefit from the ‘Lazada Effect’,” Sherry Tan, Chief Business Officer of Lazada Malaysia said.

Last year, local SMEs on the leading eCommerce platform generated more than double the sales due to its stimulus package and supportive measures. Those interested can sign up as a new seller via this link: http://lzd.co/SellOnLazadaMY
