After a successful preliminary collaboration with GrabExpress to roll out same day express delivery service in Klang Valley, PGMall is now ready to expand this delivery service with an upgrade to ‘delivery within 2 hours’ timeframe, to other major cities in Malaysia, offering better convenience to community across Peninsula Malaysia.
Established in 2007, PGMall aspires to grow and push homegrown brands to global frontier under the brand tagline ‘Bridging Local To The World’, through its very own unique Sharing Economy business model called Consumerchant. Ranked as the Third Most Visited Online Shopping Site in Malaysia among two other foreign-owned eCommerce giants by iPrice since 2010, PGMall remains as the No.1 Homegrown Online Shopping Site in Malaysia ever since. With its venture into Indonesian market in recent year, PGMall is set to expand its foreign presence by making Singapore the international gateway to penetrate into other countries across the world.
As a preliminary collaboration with GrabExpress, PGMall had first rolled out the same day express delivery facility in Klang Valley in August 2021 to gauge market response, to which it has been successful and garnered overwhelming response from shoppers. With that, PGMall is now ready to take it on to the next level by extending this express delivery facility with an upgrade to delivery within 2 hours timeframe from order time, to other parts of Peninsula Malaysia, particularly in major cities such as Penang, Ipoh, Melaka, Johor (Muar, Kluang, Batu Pahat, Johor Bahru), Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu, where demand is high.
According to Mr. Jerry Ng, Chief Operating Officer of PGMall, “This same day express delivery facility is particularly useful for urgent deliveries, especially involving essential goods. With the efficiency of the GrabExpress team, we are now able to have our shoppers’ local orders delivered within 2 hours from the order time. This would definitely offer much more convenience to our shoppers, especially during peak hours of the day where traffic is high at major roads in the city. Also with this facility, shoppers could now shop from the comfort of their home or office and have their goods delivered to them in mere hours.”
“Not just that, with the presence of Omicron, the new Variant of Concern (VOC) of COVID-19, we want to encourage Malaysians to refrain from shopping at crowded places, to prevent the surge in COVID-19 cases in Malaysia. We hope with this express 2-hour delivery facility, we could play a part in putting the pandemic under control. Currently, PGMall is the only e-Commerce platform of its kind that has collaborated with GrabExpress and integrated this as one of our shipping options,” Ng added.
The PGMall Consumerchant business concept was created on the basis of the basic economic terms of demand and supply to genuinely benefit consumers and merchants. This business model aims to create a healthy and balanced economy business ecosystem by maintaining a healthy growth of shoppers through its referral and royalty programme, which offers them long-term rewards and incentives just by shopping and referring family and friends. This will subsequently benefit the sellers due to increase in demand from the growing number of shoppers. In a nutshell, PGMall offers everyone an opportunity to earn legitimate income and enables them to build a permanent business empire with PGMall.
To date, PGMall has over 20,000 merchants and 1 million shoppers onboard, with approximately 2 million of merchandise, consisting of lifestyle products and services that are catered to both local and regional market.
