German-based Internet giant Rocket Internet GmbH has started to make its mark in Philippine soil.
Having launched Lazada Philippines (www.lazada.com.ph), the biggest online shopping mall in the nation, Rocket Internet is set to conquer the Philippine e-commerce industry. As their website is geared to carry nearly every top consumer item on the market – from electronics to health & beauty products to home appliances – Filipinos can look forward to an online shopping experience unlike any other.
Investing a lot of time and resources in setting up the most comprehensive and user-friendly online shopping destination in the Philippines, Rocket Internet promises to deliver a successful and competitive virtual marketplace. Founded in 2007 in Berlin, the powerhouse that is Rocket Internet is responsible for the development of innovative internet companies. Under their global umbrella are brands like Zalando, Zalora, Wimdu, and GlossyBox. As a stable and reliable company, they have strategic investments in Facebook and Linkedin. In the Philippines, they have revolutionized the online fashion industry with Zalora, they bring cutthroat deals via Groupon Philippines, and they are making online shopping a convenience with Lazada. Their highly motivated, passionate, and dynamic team of professionals ensure that each business they establish across the globe becomes a huge success.
As the Filipino people are becoming more conscious about bargain hunting and getting their hands on good deals, Lazada Philippines couldn't have come at a better time. “The Filipino e-commerce industry has grown exponentially over the past couple of years and people are ready to transition from brick and mortar stores to online establishments,” says Mattia Perroni, Managing Director of Operations of Rocket Internet in the Philippines. “Filipinos naturally love to shop and by offering them one website where they can get everything they need without even having to deal with traffic is a great advantage.” Besides being able to shop from home or during your lunch break, Lazada Philippines adds more value by offering free nationwide delivery, a 14-day return policy (a breakthrough for the Philippines which generally adopts a no return, no exchange policy), and a variety of payment options including COD, bank transfers, and credit card.
Conquering the Filipino market (both locally and globally) each day, Lazada has elevated the Filipino internet shopping experience to a whole new level. “We want to enhance every Filipino's experience with online shopping,” shares Managing Director of Marketing of Rocket Internet in the Philippines Gerald Eder. “By carrying quality products and the latest gadgets at prices that are easy on the pocket, we give our customers access to good discounts every day.”
As a trusted and secure website with the backing of Rocket Internet, Lazada Philippines is definitely set to take the Filipino online retail market on one amazing journey!
