Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Malaysia looking to begin trading online will be happy to know that they can now do so easily via Lazada’s new #EveryoneCanSell program.

The #EveryoneCanSell program is an end-to-end, fully integrated eCommerce program that was initiated by Lazada, and was founded both in collaboration and partnership with several government bodies. This includes SME Corp, Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM), Maybank, and Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM).

How does the #EveryoneCanSell program work? When businesses and sellers sign up with the program, they will be given full access to eCommerce training (if they haven’t already been indoctrinated into the ‘ins and outs’ of it), an easier and less tedious process into the business registration, enhanced internet connectivity with online tools and solutions, as well as financial support through loan financing and exclusive merchant accounts. Additionally, these businesses will also be supported closely at every stage of their business, as well as be given recommended solutions by the different partners of Lazada.

“With digitalization disrupting businesses, SMEs’ adoption of technology has taken on an even greater urgency than ever before. As Malaysia continues its path towards becoming a fully digital economy, businesses here must continue their evolution to be a part of it,” Y.B. Datuk Haji Ahmad Haji Maslan, Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), said at the event today. “Thus, having eCommerce market leaders such as Lazada Malaysia to help SMEs continue their online growth, will greatly assist in realizing the government’s aim of doubling the eCommerce growth from 10.8 percent to 20.8 percent by 2020.”

So, if you’re interested in getting a business license in order to begin selling your products online, you can head on over to the official site to both register and gather more information about the program.
