CIMB Bank and its e-commerce platform partner, Shopmatic, are offering four free webinar sessions for small and medium enterprise (SME) customers throughout April and May 2020. Each “Build Your Own Store And Start Selling Online” webinar will help SMEs learn about the essentials of setting up an online business, and will run for 60 minutes.

According to CIMB Bank, this offer is meant to help its customers cope with the challenges that they have encountered during the current economic climate and the movement control order (MCO) period. All its SME customers with a business current account will be entitled to the free webinars, which are held on 9 and 23 April, as well as 14 and 21 May 2020.

In each webinar, SMEs will be guided on basics such as designing a webstore on Shopmatic, enabling e-commerce features on the webstore, and managing and updating the product catalogue. Interested SMEs will have to register for the free session that they wish to join, and prepare their company’s logo along with any 5 products and descriptions for the exercise.

Small businesses with limited budgets and growing businesses looking for cost-effective ways to expand will especially benefit from Shopmatic’s expertise. They can also opt to tap into the e-commerce platform’s features to sell their products and services after the webinars.

“The platform will help SMEs operate in a practical and more efficient way during these challenging times, where restricted physical mobility need not be an obstacle, both for the businesses and their customers and their customers,” said the chief executive officer of CIMB’s group commercial banking, Victor Lee Meng Teck.

Lee further added that the scalability of Shopmatic will let SMEs leverage on the full power of this business suite to take advantage of global online business opportunities. The e-commerce platform carries features that let customers build their own webstore with a full ecosystem, including shopping cart, email marketing, payment, logistics, dashboard and mobile optimisation, site builder, as well as marketplace and social channels. They will also be able to bring their businesses to channels like Facebook, Instagram, and Lazada.

The free webinars, which usually cost RM1,500 per session, are also open to SMEs that are not registered as CIMB business account holders. However, these SMEs will be subject to certain terms and conditions.
