Established in 2017, PGMall aspires to bridge homegrown brands to global frontier through its very own unique Sharing Economy business model called ConsuMerchant. Emphasizes on the ‘Shop, Share, Earn’ philosophy, the ConsuMerchant business model is aimed at creating a healthy and balanced economy business ecosystem by offering everyone an equal opportunity to earn egitimate income and build a permanent business empire with PGMall.
In this “ConsuMerchant” book, Puan Jonaina shares about her experience of discovering a local e- Commerce platform called PGMall that she not only could shop for the things she needs and likes, but she is also rewarded for every purchases she made on this platform. Puan Jonaina is surprised that she could earn good incomes from just shopping. Apart from the exceptional personal shopping experience, she is also impressed that PGMall offers mind blowing long-term cashback as well as incentives for referring new shoppers onboard. Never had any online shopping platform rewards its shoppers in long term basis, but PGMall does otherwise through their referral and customer loyalty programme.
The ConsuMerchant business model is the brainchild of the brand founder, Dato’ Wira Louis Ng, created to provide an extraordinary trading and shopping experience for merchants and customers, where they could buy and sell, and be rewarded with legitimate returns. This marks the first of its kind ever introduced in the e-Commerce industry.
According to PGMall Founder, Dato’ Wira Louis Ng, “Shoppers are the value creators for the whole economy chain. Based on the law of supply and demand, every goods (supply) must have buyers (demand) in order for goods to be valuable within the economy ecosystem. And with the ‘Shop, Share, Earn’ concept under our ConsuMerchant business model, existing shoppers who refer their friends and family onboard, or even other shoppers in general, they will be rewarded through the referral and loyalty programme. The more shoppers they refer, the more they will earn. Not just that, with the high traffic onboard PGMall, the merchants will inevitably benefit from it too.”
Apart from the referral and customer loyalty programme where shoppers enjoy great cashback and incentives, PGMall also hosts many other attractive sales campaigns to benefit shoppers from time to time. Up next would be the Mega 12.12 e-Commerce Shopping Campaign, where shoppers get to enjoy great savings through discount vouchers offered by sellers onboard as well as government initiatives vouchers such as ‘Belanjanwan’ and ‘Shop Malaysia Online’. Previously, PGMall had participated in other
marketing campaigns too, such as Go e-Commerce, Kempen Beli Barangan Malaysia, Penang e-Bazar to support Penang sellers and the SAVE 2.0 program to encourage public to save energy by using energy savings appliances.
