KUALA LUMPUR, 26 November 2020 – Malaysia’s leading delivery platform, foodpanda, through its on-demand delivery service, Shops, offers daily essentials and grocery delivery services from over 3,500 vendors nationwide with a delivery time of under 30 minutes. This allows customers to order numerous products from a wide variety of stores on a single platform.
“As part of our quick commerce (q-commerce) offerings, Shops introduces a refreshing customer experience in true on-demand fashion. By combining goods from your favourite retail stores on our easy-to-use app and broad delivery network, we ensure that purchased items are delivered in under 30 minutes,” said Sayantan Das, Managing Director, foodpanda Malaysia.
Some of the most popular vendors on Shops include Tesco,7 Eleven, FamillyMart, Marks & Spencer, Lulu Hypermarket, Watsons, Shell Select, and Petron. When you open the foodpanda app, just tap in your address and tap on the Shops banner and you can begin to order your groceries, daily essentials and more from stores near you!
foodpanda Shops lets you order a vast variety of goods. Some of our most popular product categories are Beverages, Snacks, Fresh Foods, Frozen Foods and Personal Care products.
“Speed and convenience are becoming more important than ever before. We are confident that the on-demand shopping experience can cut traditional waiting times, adding a fresh take to conventional e-commerce and retail shop experiences,” said Sayantan Das.
As more consumers are moving toward online shopping, foodpanda ensures that Shops can provide a quick, hassle-free shopping experience. By using Shops, customers eliminate the need to drive to physical malls or shops, traffic congestion, parking and exposure to crowds, ensuring a safe and contact-free shopping experience.
Additionally, the platform has also provided a launchpad for small and medium enterprises (SME) to move their businesses online via their app. Heavily impacted brick-and-mortar has vastly benefited from this.
“It is fortunate that we are in a position to help local business owners and their employees. The COVID-19 pandemic has shuttered many physical stores worldwide, which were not able to readily move their business online. We hope that by providing the tools and guidance on our platform, we can help many SMEs to stay in business”, said Sayantan Das.
Popular SMEs on Shops include Hup Soon Food, Pasaraya Borong Matahari, Choice Shop Melaka, Agro Fresh Bites Subang, Pasaraya Sing Long Pasir Gudang and Nadia Fruits Bangsar.
Recently, foodpanda partnered up with Tesco, Malaysia’s first major retailer on Shops, to further strengthen the offerings with up to 3,000 additional items ranging from fresh produce to groceries and so on. Sayantan Das added, “Partnering with Tesco gives our customers more choices and increased accessibility to them, as this would add 62 stores nationwide.”
Providing convenience for customers doesn’t stop there for foodpanda. The company plans to work with more vendors nationwide to provide customers with on-demand shopping catering for consumers safety and convenience in mind.
