PG MALL Ranked the 3rd Most Visited Marketplace Online

Within a short span of 3 years, PG Mall, the homegrown online marketplace founded by Public Gold Group (commonly known as PG Group), has impressively ranked 3rd most visited online marketplace among other foreign-owned online marketplaces in Malaysia, by iPrice Insights with a total monthly site visit of 1,688,500 visitors as of its Q1 2020 report.

Established in 2017, PG Mall is the brainchild of PG Group Founder and Executive Chairman, Dato’ Wira Louis Ng Chun Hau, who aspires to grow and push homegrown brands to global frontier under a unique Sharing Economy business model. In view of the evolution of internet over the last decade and rapid growth in eCommerce in the recent years, Public Gold which specializes in physical gold and silver bullions trading, equipped with online trading facilities since 12 years ago, saw an opportunity to diversify its gold & silver products, to venture into consumer goods trading under PG Mall Sdn. Bhd.

PG Mall’s strength as a newly founded local eCommerce site is in its shared customer base with Public Gold that has more than 1,000,000 customers (and still growing) across South East Asia (SEA). As part of its preliminary marketing goals, PG Mall aims to bridge its local merchants to regional SEA markets, followed by global venture in the near future to boost and accelerate the local economy.

Despite it being a fairly new player in the industry, PG Mall saw an impressive revenue growth in its initial startup years, and true enough, within just a short span of 3 years since its establishment, it has won over a substantial market share to compete with bigger and long-established international players within the ecommerce industry.

According to the Managing Director of PG Mall Sdn. Bhd., Dato’ Wira Louis Ng,

“We are thrilled by the recent ranking on iPrice. Based on iPrice’s 2019 third quarter report, we were ranked Top 5 for the highest monthly web visit among other international players of similar kind, and to be able to get onto the third position in just 6 months with an impressive increase of 812,400 total web visits, to 1,688,500 total web visits is definitely mind-blowing, especially for a homegrown brand like ours, which makes us the No.1 local eCommerce site in Malaysia. No doubt that we are now officially a serious market contender and will continue to aggressively grow to top the chart.”

From a mere RM500,000 revenue recorded in 2017, PG Mall’s revenue expanded 10 folds in the following year to RM5 million in 2018. With the exceptional growth seen to date, PG Mall is set to reach a targeted revenue of RM100 million by year end.

PG Mall’s rapid growth is made possible through an aggressive marketing strategy that relies heavily on shoppers to grow its merchant and customer base under its very own unique business concept known as ConsuMerchant.

The ConsuMerchant concept is basically a profit sharing plan developed to benefit PG Mall shoppers by rewarding them with cash back ranging from 0.5% up to 3.5% on every successful transaction made. This concept also applies for referring new shoppers onboard under PG Mall referral programme. For every successful transaction made by the referred shoppers, the introducers will also receive cash back of 0.5% per transaction, up to a maximum of 3.5%.

This business model aims to help create a healthy and balanced economy business ecosystem by giving everyone an opportunity to earn legitimate incomes and build a permanent business empire with PG Mall. The brand believes shoppers are the value creators for the whole economy chain, for every goods must have a buyer in order for it (goods) to be valuable within the supply and demand economy ecosystem.

“Our business model enables anyone at any age, to own a business empire through referral under our ConsuMerchant concept and drop shipping method, without needing to master any business skills. Mostly we want to revolutionise shopping through our ‘Shop, Share and Earn’ mechanism. In general, people shop to buy things they need or desire and while they Shop we reward them with cash back of 0.5% per transaction. And if they enjoy shopping with us, we encourage them to Share their wonderful shopping experience with family and friends, and reward them further with more cash back up to 3.5%. The more they shop and refer, the more cash back they will Earn. It’s that simple,” explained Dato’ Wira Louis.

To enhance its shipping facilities, PG Mall has collaborated with Pos Malaysia Bhd’s courier arm, Pos Laju under a strategic partnership, as the main logistic partner in the region. This enables PG Mall to reach out to millions of online shoppers in urban areas through Pos Malaysia’s 700 outlets nationwide.

Apart from Pos Laju, PG Mall also partners with many other renowned courier service providers such as DHL, GDEX, Skynet, ABX Express, J&T Express, Easy Parcel, Pgeon, The Lorry and CJ Century for the betterment of the logistic industry because PG Mall believes that the logistic industry in Malaysia is growing in tandem with eCommerce and getting more competitive by the day. Therefore, they deserve the support from eCommerce company like PG Mall to grow hand in hand to reach its full potential.

Through these collaborations, they are able to share their marketing expertise with PG Mall.

MIHAS 2020 Promotes Sustainability Among Halal Based Industry Players

A new revolution in Halal Industry!

d4624869-aca4-4436-a39b-2b6208153a30

World’s largest halal trade fair, the Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS) 2020, is set to host Malaysian and global Halal-based businesses at its 17th edition from 1 to 4 April 2020.

In this edition, MIHAS will be facilitating the promotion of sustainability practices among Halal-based industry players.

WhatsApp Image 2019-11-21 at 11.26.14 AM

Themed as “Expand Your Halal Horizon”, MIHAS 2020 will feature more than 1,200 booths of companies from Malaysia and from ASEAN, North East Asia, Central Asia, Middle East, Africa and Americas. In addition, the event is expecting over 35,000 visitors from 90 countries. The congregation is set to be MIHAS largest yet since its inception in 2004.

18f1c3c5-56fe-4949-9cd6-0836ca456396

Participants of MIHAS will include Halal-certified and trade-ready companies, buyers, leading brands, manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers. Organised by Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE),

MIHAS 2020 will showcase the strengths of various sectors in Halal namely Food & Beverages, Food Technology Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, Logistics, Tourism, Islamic Finance, Digital and Franchise.

According to MATRADE’s Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Wan Latiff Wan Musa, 2020 will be a significant year for Malaysia as it operationalises various plans to drive Malaysia’s sustainability agenda.

“Sustainability promotes responsible businesses and good practices that emphasise responsibilities towards the environment, social and governance. This is very much in line with United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals or the SDGs. Halal and sustainability when practiced together will lead to the Halalan Toyyiban lifestyle and we need to articulate this to the world through MIHAS.”

For example, Halal gives guidelines on the production, processing and handling of products that ensure the contents used do not carry any matter that is prohibited by Syariah law, impure, or detrimental to health. It also warrants the processes adopted are safe and do not bring any hazards to the environment and people. At the core of the guidelines, we can see a strong emphasis on being environmentally friendly, safeguarding the well-being of the living (humans and animals), fair trade – a value that we champion through Free Trade Agreements, and ethical and just business practices that Islamic Finance exemplifies,”

“These are what make Halal and sustainability a perfect match for businesses to strengthen their value proposition when selling to the world, while at the same time protecting the world and society. This will definitely give Malaysian exporters a long-term strategic advantage.”

Apart from the showcase of Halal products and services at the exhibition, MIHAS will also feature a highly effective business matching platform called International Sourcing Programme (INSP) that has, since 2005 attracted more than 4,300 buyers from around the world who were matched with Malaysian companies.

Other than that, MIHAS 2020 will offer quality networking and learning opportunities through spacious and improved experiential zones and industry-renowned fora as well as talks by experts from various Halal industries.

Last year’s MIHAS saw the introduction of the Modest Fashion Cluster – where a total of 48 companies and associations were highlighted.

MIHAS 2020 will further strengthen Malaysia’s position as a global halal hub and put forward the economic values of Halal for the world. The prospects for Halal-based businesses continue to be strong. Based on Thomson Reuters (State of the Global Islamic Economy Report 2019/20), the global Islamic economy in 2018 was worth USD4.74 trillion and is expected to grow to USD6.66 trillion in 2024,” Wan Latiff added.

In the same report, Malaysia once again leads the Global Islamic Economy Indicator (GIEI), reflecting a robust Islamic Economy ecosystem, with Malaysia leading the pack in pioneering the growth of the Islamic economy in various sectors. Key sectors that will drive the Islamic economy include Halal Food (to be valued at USD2 trillion by 2024), Modest Fashion (USD402 billion) , Media & Recreation (USD309 billion), Muslim-Friendly Travel (USD274 billion), Halal Pharmaceuticals (USD134 billion), Halal Cosmetics (USD95 billion) and Islamic Finance (USD3.5 trillion).

MIHAS 2020 will be held at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and supported by CIMB Islamic, GISB Holdings, Ramly Food Processing Sdn Bhd of better known as Ramly Burger and Big Onion Food Caterer.
