Known in China as “bare sticks holiday” because of how it looks numerically, “double eleven” has become synonymous with a unique festival during recent years. What started as an obscure anti-Valentine’s celebration for single people in China back in the 1990s has spawned into the world’s biggest online shopping day which takes place on November 11 every year, when everyone, regardless of their single status buys themselves gifts.
Having spotted the commercial opportunity in Singles Day back in 2009, e-commerce giant Alibaba began launching “Double 11” deals for the very first time, just as online shopping was starting to explode and took the online shopping world by storm. Only last year, more than $12bn was spent on Taobao.com (shopping website by Alibaba) in the first 12 hours of Singles Day, and it surpassed $7bn in the early two hours alone, and that’s just one website! Also seen as a golden opportunity to boost sales in the lull between China’s Golden Week national holiday in October and the Christmas season, Alibaba now refers to Singles Day as the 11.11 Global Shopping Festival.
EzBuy: hassle-free shopping experience!
Online shopping is not a new obsession for many, and the sheer convenience and element of surprise has hooked our hearts, not to mention that the prices are way more competitive than what local brick-and-mortar stores are offering. Basically, EzBuy is a convenient and hassle-free online platform for us to shop, with a wide range of products such as clothing, fashion accessories, beauty products, toys, home appliances, electronic items, sportswear, office stationeries, etc. up for grabs.
Founded by a group of aspiring and Chinese former electronics engineers in 2010 to fully leverage the knowledge of their home country to help shoppers in Singapore and subsequently, Malaysians purchase items from Taobao, China’s largest consumer-oriented e-commerce platform, commanding an estimated market share of more than 70%. The website, which is entirely in Chinese, has grown in popularity with Malaysians and Singaporeans despite its merchants not delivering outside China, and this is where middleman companies like EzBuy come in.
代购流程简易方便，只需透过 Facebook 或 Google+ 账号或电邮注册成为会员，就可以在 EzBuy 网站上购买商品，然后透过 Molpay, ATM, 或网上转账服务来充值 Ezbuy 钱包，最后选择最方便自己的取货方式便可！新山的朋友如果等不及，也可以直接到位于福林园（Taman Daya）、武吉英达（Bukit Indah）及皇后（TUTA）的激成电器店上门取货，费用只需RM2.90，简直超方便！
Registering for our EzBuy account is as easy as 1-2-3 by using our Facebook account, Google+ link or via our traditional email address and set a password. With just a few simple steps, we can start our online shopping within minutes! After making our purchase and payment via Molpay, ATM, internet banking or top up our prepay wallet for easy checkout. If you just can’t wait for the delivery right to your doorstep, just opt for self-collection (RM2.90) at the following Elektronik Keck Seng outlets in Taman Daya, Bukit Indah or TUTA! Shopping online from overseas websites has never been this Ez, isn’t it?
And one more thing, we also love the fact that one doesn’t have to read or understand Chinese when shopping on Taobao, for buying with EzBuy is also as easy as ABC where we can select our preferred language in English, Chinese, and even Malay.
值得一提的是 EzBuy 主打的另一个卖点，就是 Prime 用户不管购买商品的数量多少、体积大小，运费通通一口价RM8.80！当然这个优惠需要成为 Prime 会员（年费RM188）才能享有，但考虑到平均一个月还不到RM16，又可以用它来帮朋友代购边省钱边赚钱，这天大的好康大人都那么大方分享了，看官们还在等什么呢？
Since we bought a lot from Taobao, and the occasional big size items like furniture from USA shopping websites, the EzBuy Prime Membership is the best value for money product for us as we can shop for millions of products from overseas and ship them over to Malaysia at only RM 8.80. Size and quantity no longer matter, and we just pay RM 8.80 flat for international shipping fee, how’s that for some real and huge savings?
除了可以代购中国淘宝的物品，EzBuy 还可以帮忙代购台湾、美国，甚至日韩等国家的网店，看官们不妨先来 Window shopping 看看？
Go on, take your pick from the following online shopping websites, and shop to your heart’s content “under one roof” with EzBuy!
