Dreamshop.com.my, an e-commerce platform that is home to more than one billion products today announced an exciting collaboration with the iconic Italian luxury scooter brand, Vespa. For the first time in Malaysia, customers will be able to purchase a Vespa online via a 0% Easy Payment Plan, with certain additional offers, on www.dreamshop.com.my. This collaboration marks the entry of Vespa into the e-commerce space, giving Malaysian customers the additional convenience and value of online shopping.
Speaking at the launch, Juan Chow Wee, General Manager of Didi Resources Sdn. Bhd. said, “A recent retail survey has revealed that Malaysia is leading the way amongst Southeast Asian countries in e-shopping. By the end of 2021, nine out of 10 Malaysians are expected to shop online. * Therefore, this collaboration with Dreamshop, a full range products and gift voucher e-commerce platform, is very timely. We are pleased to be able to not only make available the iconic Vespa online at Dreamshop but also offer 0% interest-free Easy Payment Plans for our customers, made possible by Dreamshop.”
Today, Malaysia has 22 million consumers (88% of total Malaysian population) who are shopping online, ahead of the Southeast Asian (SEA) average of 78%. This burst which was accelerated during the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a surge in the adoption of e-payment, better logistics and improved role of e-commerce platforms.*
“To combine click and mortar, we would be rolling out a nationwide road tour with Dreamshop to outreach and connect to potential customers with test rides, special promotion packages and activities.” added Juan Chow Wee.
