Hong Kong based on-demand delivery app Lalamove is joining forces with Shopee a leading mobile consumer-to-consumer (C2C) marketplace for a one-day sale on Wednesday, August 17th, 2016, with same-day delivery.
The flash sale campaign comes hot on the heels of a successful one-day sale last month and reveals how Lalamove is speeding up e-commerce last-mile delivery. It also widens the appeal and potential for online retailers to satisfy consumer demand with quicker delivery times.
The one day Shopee sale on July 27th, 2016, promised free, same-day deliveries by 6pm on all city-wide purchases made online between 9am-12pm that day and the fastest delivery times that Lalamove made was within 20 minutes! Far faster than the usual ‘snail-mail’ delivery time of 3-5 days for online orders through traditional delivery services.
Accelerating to meet the city’s growing e-commerce market, Lalamove is fast becoming an essential online retail market ally. The same-day delivery potential gives businesses real-time sales boost too.
The most popular buys during the Shopee one-day-same-day sale in July were bags bought by women. When it comes to women getting hold of that must-have bag they have fallen in love with, they simply do not want to wait. Other top purchases were cosmetics and apparels, revealing the breadth of consumer shopping behavior and choices online.
