MANY local businesses are struggling to make ends meet and their agility to adjust under the new normal is continuously tested.
Your favourite local and home sellers may be among them and in need of a lifeline.
To spur local businesses, the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has launched Go-eCommerce Onboarding and Shop Malaysia Online (SMO) campaigns, under the Belanjawan 2021 initiative.
As the only local bank to be selected by MDEC to join the campaign, Maybank is proud to further propel the aim of this initiative to reduce operation costs and ensure businesses leverage on new opportunities as well as strengthen agility and resiliency.
Besides that, it also aims to increase consumers’ confidence to buy from local businesses in order for them to remain competitive.
“MDEC holds steadfast to its resolve to enable Malaysian businesses to navigate and thrive through these business unusual times.
“With strong support from the Government and effective public-private collaborations, we aim to further catalyse the growth of ecommerce in Malaysia and of equal importance, sustain livelihoods and jobs in the process.
“Together, we can accomplish the goals of MyDigital and place us firmly on course towards Malaysia 5.0 – a globally competitive digital nation, anchored on inclusivity, sustainability and shared prosperity, firmly establishing Malaysia as the heart of digital Asean,” said MDEC chief executive officer Surina Shukri.
Moving forward together
Maybank invites local merchants to join them under its Go-ecommerce onboarding campaign with zero commission, zero sign-up fee and zero platform fees.
Through its Sama-Sama Lokal digital platform, merchants can establish their online presence and reach out to more customers easily.
Furthermore, Sama-Sama Local does not charge any commission or fee, which means 100% profit goes directly to the merchant.
No matter the type of business, participating merchants would be provided with delivery assistance via the platform for goods to be delivered to customers' safety,
