MALAYSIAN shoppers and bazaar merchants rejoice as Lazada gears up for the Ramadan fasting season with its month-long online food festival – Lazat Bazaar.
This is the online platform for local bazaar sellers to offer Malaysians a chance to enjoy their favourite buka puasa essentials.
Lazada 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 the potential loss in sales due to the ongoing pandemic," said Lazada Malaysia Traffic head Susan Too.
"Through the Lazat Bazaar, we aim to ease their hardship by bringing them online and supporting them with exposure and traffic on our e-commerce platform.
"The initiative will not only help to sustain but also enable their businesses to grow this year."
Lazada will support these local Ramadan bazaar merchants to better serve their customers through its vast logistics network by offering same-day deliveries.
From April 13 to May 13, all cooked-to-order purchases made on the online bazaar before 4pm will be delivered within the same day by 7pm.
Hot meals and baked goods ordered after 4pm will be prepared and fulfilled the next day.
"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, Lazada Malaysia chief logistics officer.
Murtabak, lemang, rendang, laksa, roti john, nasi kerabu and kuih-muih are some of items available for order on Lazat Bazaar.
