lazada shopping“We are committed to providing an effortless online shopping experience to approximately 550 million consumers in the Southeast Asian region. While our customer satisfaction survey reveals that respondents are satisfied with their online shopping experience, there is an untapped opportunity to reach out to non-online shoppers by highlighting the benefits of online shopping and thus changing their perceptions,” said InancBalci, CEO of Lazada Philippines.

As an eCommerce leader in the Philippines, Lazada provides consumers with an effortless shopping experience with its user-friendly sites and mobile apps accessible at their fingertips anytime, any day. It offers a wide selection of international, local and exclusive products; and multiple secure payment options including cash-on-delivery.

Consumers can shop with peace of mind on Lazada as all items purchased are covered by Lazada’s Buyer Protection Program. This provides a guarantee that products are genuine, new and not defective; and for customers to return the items within seven days for a full refund, otherwise. Consumers can also shop with assurance knowing that they can reach out to Lazada’s customer service seven days a week by phone and email.

What Lazada Philippines Customer Say
As a customer-focused company, Lazada Philippines constantly reviews customer satisfaction levels. In Q1 2015, the company polled 28,429 respondents in the Philippines to learn more about their online shopping experience.

While the survey reveals that majority of respondents are satisfied, a Google Shopper Study published in June 2014 shows that product quality and security are the biggest barriers to online shopping in The Philippines. The study shows that 45% are worried about the security of their financial details in online transactions, while 36% of non-online shoppers are unsure about the warranty process of the items they purchase online.

“There is a clear disconnect between the perceptions of non-online shoppers and what our customers experience, highlighting the need to gain consumers’ trust to dispel the barriers to online shopping. As a market leader, we are taking the first step towards highlighting the benefits of online shopping to all consumers through an integrated Effortless Shopping campaign,” said InancBalci, CEO of Lazada Philippines.
