Lazada Online Revolution offering 210 million items
In its sixth year, the Lazada Online Revolution mega-sale will be the biggest yet when it takes off on November 11 across six countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Themed “Shop the Universe”, the sale will offer 210 million products, up sevenfold from last year, and has expanded its product categories to include fashion, luxury cosmetics, groceries, pet supplies and digital goods such as e-vouchers and prepaid mobile-phone top-ups. International brands include Huawei, Laneige, Levi’s, Mac, Ray-Ban, Shiseido and Triumph.
There will be about 26 million deals offering discounts of up to 90 per cent, including items from the Taobao Collection, which offers kitchenware, furnishings, fashion apparel and accessories.
Shoppers in Southeast Asia ordered about two million items within the first 24 hours of last year’s Online Revolution 2016. Among the top sellers were VR glasses, smartphones, shower gels and mascaras.
As well as its own 130 delivery centres across the six countries, Lazada will work with more than 80 delivery companies to handle demand during the sale.
