As many as 60,000 local micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) will receive up to RM3,000 in Shopee benefits via Shopee’s Go-eCommerce Onboarding programme.
New Shopee sellers who have registered as a seller from 1 July onwards will get RM1,500 in Shopee Store Coins Cashback Vouchers and up to RM1,500 in service fee rebates. Meanwhile, existing sellers who registered before July will get RM2,500 in Shopee Store Coins Cashback Vouchers and up to RM500 in service fee rebates.
“The initiative under Belanjawan 2021 aims to encourage the adoption of e-commerce as a trade channel amongst local MSMEs and Malaysian citizens who wish to venture into entrepreneurship,” Shopee said in a statement. “Shopee is also co-funding this initiative Ringgit-to-Ringgit in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).”
The programme was also part of the PENJANA e-commerce initiatives last year – known as Micro and SMEs E-Commerce Campaign before it was rebranded to Go-eCommerce Onboarding. Over 40,000 MSMEs were digitised through the campaign last year and participating MSMEs recorded a 158% increase in daily sales after receiving the benefits.
The Go-eCommerce Onboarding programme is open to registered Shopee sellers who are Malaysian citizens or belong in the MSME category as defined by SME Corporation Malaysia. Interested sellers who meet the eligibility criteria can start applying from now until 30 November 2021 at shopee.com.my/goecommerce. Participation is free, but sellers are encouraged to apply quickly as space is limited.
