Merchants Are Turning To Lazada’s Lazat Bazaar During MCO 3.0
While the nation continues the battle against COVID-19 during the Ramadhan fasting month, Malaysians have opted to carry on the tradition of visiting bazaars virtually through the Lazat Bazaar, an ongoing month-long online food festival on Lazada. Local small businesses, grocers, and bazaar merchants who pivoted online at zero cost thanks to Lazada’s Pintar Niaga stimulus package are now able to continue operating during MCO 3.0 for the rest of Ramadhan and the upcoming Raya celebrations.

The Lazat Bazaar, which connects KLites and Selangorians with their favourite local bazaar stalls and markets until the upcoming Raya festivities, will continue to offer same-day delivery on cooked-to-order food for Lazada customers in selected locations within Shah Alam, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, and Subang. Lazada says that the best-selling items in Lazat Bazaar so far has been putu piring, followed by murtabak, kuih lopes, roti john, and kuih tepung pelita.
Furthermore, MSMEs can take advantage of the Pintar Niaga stimulus kit, which includes 0% commission and listing fees, as well as easy access to Lazada University’s intensive step-by-step training, Seller Centre’s creative software, free RM300 advertisement credits, free high-traffic visibility slots, Free Shipping voucher discounts, 90-day dedicated support, and more.
Last year, local MSMEs on Lazada generated more than double the sales due to the platform’s stimulus package and supportive measures. Local MSMEs across all industries are welcomed to sign up as a new seller via this link, whereas those looking to feast on local Ramadhan bazaar delicacies from the comfort of their homes can visit the Lazat Bazaar here.
Pokdepinion: I miss going to Bazaar Ramadhan. Both this year and last year didn’t manage to go due to MCO. Even though Lazada’s Lazat Bazaar is probably the next best thing in that regard, it’s just not quite the same. I wish that I can go out to a physical one sometime in the future.
