Lazada Seller Stories #4: Sam Kon, Electrical Shop

Lazada Community has taught me so much about teamwork and ways to improve my business. We all come from different backgrounds but with the same objective which is to grow our online business internationally.

I stumbled upon an opportunity that I am thankful came by at the right moment. This was when the traditional brick and mortar outlets were not performing well. If it were to continue until today, I don't think it would be a business that would have been able to survive long in this digital age, which was why moving online was very necessary at the time.

My first encounter with the online business was during the days of Lelong, Mudah, eBay and Lowyat Forum. These were some of the baby steps that led me to Lazada, which was introduced to Malaysia back in 2014, growing at a rapid scale. At first, I had my doubts of signing up but as an entrepreneur, I know that opportunity and risk always go hand in hand. If I did not take that leap of faith, I would not be here today.

I remember it as it was just yesterday. The first ever item we sold on Lazada was a Samsung 43" Plasma TV. My cousin and I had our doubts if we were going to be paid accordingly.  I made sure that all documents were presented and personally sent the item to the courier office, ensured all evidence was captured as proof of delivery. I emailed all the scanned documents to Lazada and asked if they will pay me, still being in doubt And I finally received the payment and knew this was a beginning of something great.

eCommerce is not a quick rich scheme. It takes a lot of patience and grit to grind through whatever infrastructure that we do not have yet in Malaysia. Therefore, I constantly engage with the seller community so that we can uplift one another and build sustainability within the eCommerce ecosystem.

Lazada Community has taught me so much about teamwork and ways to improve my business. We all come from different backgrounds but with the same objective which is to grow our online business internationally. We share our business experiences, tricks and traits and our failures too because that's where we can all learn from and grow better. As one of the Seller Ambassadors, I am grateful to help the community by sharing my business knowledge. To see the sellers achieving their business goals makes me feel honored to be given this title.

This initiative has led me to be selected as a certified Lazstar trainer by Taobao University and Alibaba Business School. Lazada provides trainings, workshops and focus study group for new and existing sellers.

Lazada has created a great opportunity for sellers to learn and grow their business. My family business would not be where is it today if I did not take the leap of faith to try this online business.
