Lazada’s Online Revolution campaign claimed itself as Southeast Asia’s busiest online shopping event of the year with record performance from 10th to 12th of December, the final three days of the month-long sale.
Traffic spiked to an all-time high of 36 million visits on Lazada sites and mobile apps. Volume of orders reached one million – a 300% jump over the same period last year.
With approximately 1.7 million items ordered, the campaign chalked up US$40 million in Gross Merchandize Value (GMV) or overall sales in its three-day finale, the company said.
Mobile reigned, accounting for 60% of the GMV as more customers across the region choose to purchase via their smart devices.
More than 30,000 sellers including over 600 global and local brands across different categories supported the campaign with exclusive launches and promotions. In three days of the campaign, more than 300 flash sales and hundreds of thousands of deals were rolled out across the six countries.
“We thank our buyers and sellers for their trust and enthusiastic response to our Online Revolution campaign. The campaign has become the biggest retail event of the year in Southeast Asia since its initial launch on 12 December 2012 as more consumers embrace online shopping. We will continue to enhance the customer experience and bring the best of online shopping through unbeatable assortment, great value and convenience,” said Maximilian Bittner, CEO, Lazada Group.
The Lazada Group operates in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. It was launched in March 2012.
