Global Shopping Day, otherwise known as 11.11 or Singles Day, is a shopping phenomenon that consumers throughout the world look forward to. As such, 11street – Malaysia’s second largest online marketplace – curated 11.11 Shocking Sales for Malaysians and saw its total orders surge by 4 times in comparison to a regular business day, 10 November.
Chief Operating Officer of 11street, Chuljin Yoon said: “As the biggest shopping day of the year, 11street seeks to share the joy of saving and shopping online with Malaysian consumers. We have seen remarkable success with RM1 flash sales and free shipping promotion in early November after we kickstarted our ‘Shocking? YES!’ campaign. Knowing what our consumers want is key and this led us to introduce these favourites, to add greater value for our consumers on this special global shopping day, 11.11.”
