If you’ve been raring to buy yourself quality headphones perfect for summer getaways at only P699 or a four-wheel trolley for P3,507, then you’ve just been provided with the best deals of up to 90 percent off with the ongoing fifth birthday celebration of e-commerce retailer and seller Lazada.
When the clock struck midnight today, March 21, the online site gave its birthday blowout to both loyal and new customers to celebrate five years of operations. The birthday discounts will be until March 23.
Inanc Balci, co-founder and chief operating officer of Lazada, reports that they are giving as much as 90 percent off on well-loved items, as well as prizes for those who just go online to shop such as a trip for two to Taiwan courtesy of KKDay, and free booky.ph subscriptions worth P1,500 with every minimum purchase.
Balci reports that the site he co-founded five years ago just keeps getting better and bigger especially with its acquisition by e-commerce giant Alibaba.com last year.
With an established group backing it, Balci sees the company’s growth in the next five years by improving on its core competencies.
Along with the acquisition, they have also added two new categories to their 16 previous ones. Shoppers can now order their groceries and pet goods supplies via their website.
As their ecosystem grows bigger with more retailers and sellers, and even impressive site visits registering 6.3 million last year, Balci shares that they are working on adding more to their portfolio.
Their fifth year celebration is expected to add to this, given the traffic it would generate. Last year, they registered a record 200,000 items sold during their birthday blowout, which was more than triple the amount when they first organized their birthday blowout sale in 2014 where 4,000 items were sold.
Besides the Delsey Trolley and JBL headphones for their Top Deals items, the Nyx Lip Lingerie originally at P980 is slashed down to P490 in a Buy 1, Take 1 scheme; VR Box 3D glasses for P95; Keds sneakers for as low as P999; and assorted Nestle Dolce Gusto capsule packs with free Nestle Dolce Gusto Oblo machine for P3,400.
Their Flash Sale gives discounted prices for items during specific time of the day. These include an inflatable Banana Bed for P199, Niver Shower Gels for P68, CKK Inspire mobile phone with five mega-pixel camera and dual SIM capability for P999, Avision 24" HD LED TV and Matrix air conditioner for P4,999 and car stereo Bluetooth player at P699.
