AirAsia’s OURSHOP Save Our Shops

by on April 15, 2020
 

The current COVID-19 pandemic is having wide ranging effects on people’s lives, whether they catch the disease or not. In Malaysia the movement control order (MCO), in effect from 18th March, has greatly affected the business landscape, especially for micro, small and medium enterprises. AirAsia’s e-commerce platform, OURSHOP has introduced ‘Save Our Shops’ to open more opportunities for this sector. Starting with Peninsular Malaysia, the company is opening up its ecosystem to make its resources available to all local businesses.

Save Our Shops Campaign

The campaign to Save Our Shops (S.O.S) aims to assist as many local businesses as possible, with AirAsia making available the below resources:

  • OURSHOP, the e-commerce platform of AirAsia
    • Hosted on the AirAsia website, which receives significant traffic.
    • It’s the first tab on the Search bar
  • Products sold through OURSHOP will be delivered via Teleport
    • the logistics arm of AirAsia

This campaign offers merchants the opportunity to sign up at ZERO COMMISSION & ZERO LISTING FEE to market their products on OURSHOP, for the month of April. However, shops must cover the banking transaction charges of 2% for each sale made.

Local businesses who are interested to be a merchant can sign up at www.ourshop.com/seller.
