PGMall has officially launched their Sell to China Program in partnership with JD.com – China’s largest online retailer platform, following a virtual signing ceremony held earlier this year.
Operating under a unique sharing economy business model, PGMall connects local sellers and shoppers on a platform which provides connected services to many logistics and payments service providers. To support local economies, PGMall has been actively collaborating with the local government to drive activities that support local sellers and products through PENJANA campaigns such as Micro and SMEs E-Commerce Campaign, Shop Malaysia Online (SMO), and Kempen Beli Barangan Malaysia (KBBM).
PGMall is now able to bridge local businesses to the largest market in the world – China, through its collaboration with JD Worldwide, in the hope of helping affected businesses to recover from financial woes caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Dato’ Wira Louis Ng Chun Hau, Founder and Managing Director of PGMall said, “Considering the ongoing pandemic situation, we feel that SMEs are in dire need of help to adapt and find alternative means to survive this
financial crisis. We hope with this partnership with JD Worldwide, we are able to help local businesses to stay afloat and recover by offering them an alternative channel abroad to safeguard their business from further threat.”
“One of our main objectives is to help local businesses to grow to their full potential and also enable local sellers to proudly showcase Malaysian-made products to the world while they grow and build a solid business empire with us,” Dato’ Wira added.
PGMall Sell to China programme provides a one-stop solution to satisfy all the seller’s needs, with services including brand registration on JD, product translation to Chinese, marketing materials and campaigns, as well as local customer service, marking a big improvement compared to conventional methods of selling to China.
