Lazada, now the Philippines' leading one-stop online shop, continues to post impressive growth as it approaches its first-year anniversary. Aside from the Philippines, the Rocket Internet-backed e-commerce venture is also dominating the rest of Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia.
Being among the most visited websites in SEA and having more than two million Facebook fans emphasizes Lazada's recently gained popularity. Maximilian Bittner, CEO of Lazada: ''For a long time, the e-commerce market has been underestimated in SEA, but we did not. With a broad range of products from consumer electronics, household goods, toys to sports equipment, secure payment options, quick deliveries and a convenient return policy, we convince more people every day of Lazada.''
Managing Director for Lazada Philippines SteffenWulff Petersen added that the reception for Lazada in the Philippines has been especially great. ''Many of our visitors are returning customers that have experienced our great service. They keep coming back to discover our latest campaigns as well as products and then refer us to their friends and families. We are incredibly proud to have already become such a deeply trusted brand in the Philippines.''
To thank its loyal patrons and celebrate its success, Lazada is hosting a number of contests and games with prizes worth more than Php 1,000,000 during the weeks leading up to its birthday on April 4th. Here the stand out game is the Golden Ticket, which is awarded to every customer that makes a purchase of at least P5,000
