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.

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.

Industry sources said the Chinese group is looking at companies which are under valued and have 5G capability to grow the business and at this moment are targeting TWO local telcos.

“They may target Green Packet Bhd and XOX Bhd. XOX  is the cheapest telco stock on Bursa Malaysia and are now one of the fastest growing telcos in Malaysia,” said industry sources with knowledge on the matter.

For information, XOX has about RM35 million cash on hand and currently offers the most competitive and innovative 4G data plan. It is focusing to build 5G infrastructure in the region.

This 5G technology has many to offers and some are:

  • to transform the landscape of telecoms as it promises faster download speeds and high network reliability
  • will open opportunities for new services, network operation and improved customer experience
  • providers will be able to increase both download speeds and monthly data capacity on unlimited plans
  • The transition to 5G is expected to generate a windfall for network, infrastructure, and equipment vendors

Three months ago XOX partnered with Advance Tech Communication Sdn Bhd (ATC) to launch 4G and 5G smartphones, with additional satellite communication capabilities termed XPLORE.

Therefore, XOX will be the FIRST MALAYSIAN telco to market and distribute the products to its users across Southeast Asia.

The smartphone, equipped with satellite connectivity and digital mobile radio, will be launched by ATC to XOX users. It is said that  XOX’s Executive Director Steve Tan has mentioned that the company aims to provide a unified network plan by integrating XOX’s prepaid plans and messaging platform with ATC’s extensive satellite emergency services. However, Tan was not available for comment at press time.

“XOX is quite strong as a company. It implemented the right marketing strategy as well as innovation ideas and products to see it through the current Covid-19 pandemic and drive the company forward. The success factor for XOX is built by leveraging on the brand, distribution channel with a solid growth of customer base,” said a source close to XOX.

Analysts believe telco stocks will rally as the sector is making handsome profits, amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

XOX is ranked FIFTH in the telco sector and is the Number ONE  MVNO company in Malaysia with current customer base almost reaching three million, including prepaid and post paid mobile phone users.

Last month XOX inked an agreement with DGB Asia Bhd to collaborate in the deployment of up to 1,000 next generation AI vending machines. This move is in line with XOX’s strategy to focus on different silos of its business to build up its revenue streams.

Valuations of telcos in Malaysia are becoming attractive again and the sector is expected to grow at an accelerated rate with the current shifts happening in digital landscapes such as 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).

This was supported by major shopping festivals such as 9.9, 11.11 and 12.12. Our volumes have been steadily increasing campaign to campaign. Hence, the appointment of Ninja Van was imperative in order for us to ensure that our users are able to get their parcels on time,” said Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director of Shopee.

Commenting on the industry’s landscape, Ho added that there is a lot more potential for the e-commerce industry in Malaysia to grow. “Seeing as e-commerce contribution to total retail is still below 3%, and very much at its infancy, there is a lot more work to be done. We remain committed to this market and expect 2020 to be another exciting year as we unlock more opportunities and identify solid partnerships that would be beneficial to retailers, consumers and the economy.”

This launch in Malaysia comes after Goodyear’s recent sponsorship of three participating teams in the World Endurance Championship (widely known as the Le Mans), namely Jota Sport, Jackie Chan DC Racing and High Class Racing.

Alex Ng, Managing Director of Goodyear Malaysia said:

“Racing is in our DNA. Throughout the years, Goodyear has been involved in many races such as NASCAR, Le Mans and the British Touring Car Championship, therefore, it is inevitable that we will once again align ourselves with high-speed motorsports. We continue to innovate to bring cutting-edge technology and differentiated features to our tyres. The most important aspect is that motorsports allows us to test our capabilities and push our limits so that we can eventually achieve excellent technology transfer and utilise development experience from the tracks to the road.”

As part of the official launch of the Eagle F1 family, Goodyear Malaysia recently announced two additional tyres, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV.

In addition to this series, Goodyear will be announcing a brand new tyre in 2020. This is part of Goodyear’s commitment for thrill seeking drivers and this tyre will enable all enthusiasts to enjoy premium tyres at competitive prices.

Fly With the Eagles

Designed for comfort, control and superior in the wet, the Eagle F1 SuperSport was developed for better grip and handling on the road. Through the usage of an innovative U-shaped compound, the Eagle F1 SuperSport Series has specialised power zones which creates pockets of control for superior wet and dry handling. The tyre also has a thread deformation protector which helps in maintaining its shape, allowing better footprint preservation for high-speed stability. To increase grip during cornering, Goodyear applied a closed outside pattern, which allows for more agile performance. Additionally, it also has a stiffer sidewall design which improves handling and stability.

Focusing on wet conditions, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 offers luxurious comfort and superior wet breaking. The specialised thread design and Impulse Control Compound Technology, a highly refined silica compound, allow the tyre to endure the force of high-speed braking, shortening the braking distance. This compound also allows a patch extension through Goodyear’s ActiveBraking Technology, which allows the tyre to slightly expand when braking to create more grip using its walls. In addition, the tyre is not only built for wet conditions – its Power Cushion Technology (stiff coupling of carcass and pattern) produces precise power transmission, leading to excellent dry handling.

For larger cars and SUVs, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is designed to be sturdy while promoting better fuel consumption due to its low rolling resistance. It is also capable of shortening braking distance through ActiveBraking Technology, in any condition. It enforces stronger grip, which makes it easier for handling and braking. Its specialised compound known as the Grip Booster compound increases the tyre’s stickiness with the road surface, allowing it to be comfortable while maintaining handling when travelling at higher speeds giving the driver to total control.

Expanding the family

At the launch, Goodyear Malaysia also reacquainted the market with its other tyre families, namely the Assurance, EfficientGrip and the Wrangler series.

For the Assurance range, Goodyear offers a comfortable, quiet and safe drive of one’s vehicle by highlighting the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax 2, as well as the Assurance DuraPlus 2. The Assurance TripleMax 2 is equipped with the latest HydroTred technology for enhanced wet braking performance, while its asymmetric threads allows for better handling, and comfort performance for a quieter and safer drive. The Assurance DuraPlus 2, on the other hand, is equipped with TredLife technology and a specialised compound to reduce exterior noise, increase overall comfort, and at the same time allow for further milleage.

The EfficientGrip Performance is a tyre equipped with higher gripping compounds that enables shorter braking distances on wet roads. Infused with ActiveBraking Technology, the EfficientGrip Performance increases contact between the tyre and the roads increasing the braking distance performance for up to two meters on wet roads. This has allowed the tyres to be A-rated by european regulations. In addition to that, it also comes with FuelSaving Technology that reduces rolling resistance by up to 18% in comparison to its predecessor, Goodyear EfficientGrip. The inclusion QuietTred Technology also ensures that the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance is able to provide a quieter drive.

Aside from the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV, Goodyear also showcased the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance SUV. Similar to the EfficientGrip Performance, the EfficientGrip Performance SUV is designed to be quiet and comfortable to fit luxury highway SUVs. In addition to that, with reinforced and robust construction, the EfficientGrip Performance is equipped to match all driving conditions. Its QuietTred Technology reduces exterior and interior noise levels to provide luxury SUV drivers with a quieter ride. Goodyear’s FlexContact technology uses heavier gauge under thread and barrier cushion that reduces vibration and increases tire insulation for improved ride comfort

When it comes to the Wrangler series, the Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac is equipped with Durawall technology provides light off-road durability with improved quiet and comfort for on-road and extended mileage, to achieve the best balance between on and off road. For the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac, the pattern offers additional transaction through its TractiveGroove Technology, which allows the treds to offer better grip in off-road situations. Furthermore, its highly angled centre tread blocks enhance traction as well as adds stability to reduce road noise, leading to a quieter drive.

“Each pattern was passionately designed to suit consumer demands depending on preference. we know that the tyre is in between the road and the drivers ability to have control of the vehicle. Hence, we continuously enhance our HydroTred technology to achieve better braking performance on wet roads as well as in various conditions. We understand that the tyre is the only point of contact between the road and the car, amplifying the importance of constantly innovating new ways to stay in control. This is why evolution of our patterns is important at Goodyear. With innovation, it has pushed Goodyear to push boundaries and set itself apart,” concluded Ng.
