Three more territories for Taobao Collection
After launching in Malaysia and Singapore, the Taobao Collection – a curated offering from online marketplace Taobao – is being rolled out in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.
Available through the Lazada platform, the collection adds millions of extra products in such categories as home, beauty tools, fashion, sports, travel and electronics accessories. Also featured are specific lifestyle products not easily available in traditional retail outlets or non-metro areas.
The selection is chosen from the total range at Alibaba’s Taobao as well as from brands at Tmall, and is offered in the local languages on the Lazada sites. Delivery deals are available and goods are covered by Lazada’s easy return and refund practice. Customers in Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand will also be able to opt for cash-on-delivery.
Taobao Collection launches in Indonesia today, the Philippines on October 11, and Thailand on November 1.
Across Southeast Asia, Lazada has 175 million products from international and local-country brands and merchants, with Taobao Collection contributing about 8 million per country.
