KUALA LUMPUR: Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) plans to have more than 10,000 merchants onboard and deliver 1,000 orders daily through its online platform known as Sama-Sama Lokal by year-end.
Group chief executive officer of community financial services Datuk John Chong said Sama-Sama Lokal which was launched in mid-April last year has received tremendous response from local business such as hawkers, market and sundry shops, as well as home appliance providers since the movement control order (MCO) was enforced in mid-March 2020.
“Since its inception, we have processed close to 50,000 orders, and have more than 4,400 merchants on our platform.
“We hope to have more merchants online that can provide a larger variety of products and services to our customers, ” he told Bernama. — Bernama
