Even though online shopping is a much more convenient way to shop, there are still some risks associated with it. You could spend hours just sifting through multiple listings of the same product and the cheapest one could be a fake option too.
Which is why online shopping platforms like LamboPlace have measures in place to deal with these issues.
LamboPlace works with official retailers and local businesses and they even have their own logistics arm for speedy 1-day delivery.
Only Verified Vendors Allowed
As LamboPlace only works with verified vendors, official retailers and brand owners, you don’t have to go through multiple reviews and doubting whether the product you’re buying is genuine or not.
LamboPlace also informed us that they only accept one product from a brand. Such decisions prevent the marketplace from being too saturated with the same products. They also want to create a marketplace that is trustable and easy for customers to use.
Example: You’re looking to buy a new Samsung Galaxy Note20 in Mystic Bronze from LamboPlace. When you search for the phone, you’ll only see one listing for a genuine Samsung Galaxy Note20. (There may be different listings for different specs and colours.)
This saves you time and money, as you don’t have to look for the best price or checking to see if it’s a legit product.
They Provide Benefits To Vendors Too
If you’re a merchant looking to sell on LamboPlace, they have plans in place to support and grow your business. Currently, they’re equipped with tools to help merchants go digital with their free onboarding services.
LamboPlace informed us that they’ve also set aside roughly RM500,000 to help out the merchants with promotions, digital advertising on social media, offline billboards and even onboarding/fulfilment services.
“This move alleviates the need for small business owners to employ additional manpower to manage marketing and customer service. We want to keep supporting our e-commerce community and constantly provide them with the best deals, especially during these unpredictable times.”Dato’ Jason Yap, CEO of LamboPlace
Ensuring That Your Shopping Variety Isn’t Limited
Aside from working with official retailers, LamboPlace also works with small local businesses via LamboBazaar, helping them reach different customer bases. Here you can find local and artisanal products that include food, skincare, and even homemade candles.
You can find a plethora of health and wellness products under LamboWellness and on LamboFresh, you can purchase fresh seafood, vegetables and meats delivered right to your doorstep.
Aside from those, they’re also working with big-name brands such as Puma, Hypergear, Sony, Supreme, Nike, Sharp and Electrolux.
Getting Our New Norm Supplies In A Day
Even after MCO was lifted, going to a physical shop is still a hassle. We have to wear masks, scan QR codes and get our temperature checked too. And the check-in process can also be delayed when you’re going on a busy day.
So, we decided to check out what LamboPlace has to offer. We ordered supplies for the office such as hand sanitisers, surface cleaners, face masks, toilet rolls and snacks.
We used the app version of LamboPlace and signed up on the platform using a Google Account. Of course, you can still log into the app with other methods.
We went through the list of stuff that we wanted to buy fairly quickly. Because there’s no need to compare or check if they’re verified products, we went through the whole process in just a few minutes.
In terms of the products offered, the LamboPlace team told us that they’ve done preliminary filtering and selected the best product for you so you don’t have to endlessly scroll and hope that you get the item you searched for.
After adding all the items we wanted onto the cart, we made the order at around 9 AM. To our surprise, some of the products arrived on the same day too.
Most orders within Klang Valley do arrive within a day (with no extra charges). But, delivery time will vary when you’re outside of Klang Valley. As for delivery fees, you’ll be charged per order from different merchants and the fees can be as low as RM2.
