“Considering Online Revolution is a month-long event, generating 2 million items on our first day is very encouraging,” said Maximilian Bittner, CEO for Lazada Group. “We created Online Revolution in 2012 to encourage more consumers to experience the benefits of shopping online. Every year we see a larger pool of online shoppers, with growing diversity across generations and geographical locations. This was confirmed this year, as we saw consumers ordering from places as far as Papua Barat[1] in Indonesia, Huyen Nam Nhun[2] in North Vietnam or Kudat[3] in Sabah, Malaysia to purchase international and local brands not previously available to them.”

Consumers didn’t want to miss out on the start of the highly anticipated and largest shopping event in Southeast Asia. In the week leading up to 11.11, there were close to 1.9 million app downloads and shoppers spent almost 10 minutes browsing through offers on the first day. In just 24 hours, consumers in Southeast Asia bought close to 74,000 smartphones and tablets as well as 1,944,000 diapers.

11.11 marks the beginning of the Group’s month long shopping event. In the next 4 weeks, Lazada will tailor its offering to its customers’ interests with a weekly curated selection of items for beauty fans, supermoms and families, techies and fashionistas culminating with another “mega sale” on 12.12.

These deals are coming on top of the wide and growing assortment on Lazada all year round. To date, Lazada boasts an unmatched catalog of close to 30 million products, over 17 product categories.

[2] Huyen Nam Nhun is 2,138km away from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
