KUALA LUMPUR, April 5: AirAsia Group has launched a Save Our Shops (S.O.S) campaign to help local businesses to market their products during the movement control order (MCO) period.
The airline said its e-commerce platform, OURSHOP would be hosted on its website, airasia.com, which receives significant traffic to enable products of local businesses sold through it to be delivered via its logistics arm Teleport.
“We have the right platform and infrastructure, and in this travel down-time, what better way to put our resources to good use than by lending a helping hand to those who need it,” AirAsia said in a statement.
It said the campaign would enable merchants whose businesses have been hit hard by measures to contain Covid-19 to sign up at zero commission and zero listing fee to market their products on OURSHOP for the whole of April.
These shops would only be required to cover the banking transaction charges of two per cent for each sale made.
The products that qualify include groceries, daily essentials, food and beverage, beauty products and household items.
