ON-DEMAND delivery service provider Lalamove is collaborating with Maybank’s zero commission ecommerce platform Sama-Sama Lokal to organise a National Day-themed Sehati Selokal campaign to encourage the sales of Sama-Sama Lokal’s merchants that are based in the Klang Valley.
The Sehati Selokal campaign will run exclusively on the Sama-Sama Lokal platform on Maybank’s M2U app from Aug 28 to 31.
The campaign offers free deliveries by Lalamove and a discount of RM10 with a minimum spend of RM30. The RM10 discount is redeemable with the promo code SELOKAL.
“The new normal has hastened the need for on-demand delivery among small businesses and SMEs. We are committed to supporting the business community with our digital logistics solutions,” said Lalamove Malaysia managing director Jane Teh.
“Local businesses, such as hawkers and retailers, are dependent on daily revenue to stay afloat. We share the same sentiment with Maybank’s Sama-Sama Lokal, that local businesses should be able to run their businesses, come rain or shine.
“Let’s play our part as consumers and caring Malaysians by buying from these businesses so that they can keep on selling within our community.”
Maybank launched the Sama-Sama Lokal initiative in April 2020. The zero-commission digital platform offers exposure to the bank’s 12 million customers and a sales channel for local businesses that were struggling to make ends meet due to restrictions under the movement control order.
“Lalamove has been delivering for Sama-Sama Lokal since May 2020. We are more than happy to be a part of the Sehati Selokal campaign which shares the same values as Sama-Sama Lokal,” said Maybank head of virtual banking and payment Kalyani Nair.
“We encourage Malaysians to come together, especially during the National Day week, to throw their support behind local businesses and make purchases from them.
“The campaign will offer discounts on top of free deliveries by Lalamove. We believe the additional perks and incentives will help increase daily orders throughout the four-day campaign period, which will generate considerable income for Sama-Sama Lokal’s merchants as well as the delivery riders.”
