SINGAPORE, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Lazada Singapore is sending five of its top performing sellers to Alibaba's campus in Hangzhou, where they will join a delegation of 34 Lazada sellers from across the region. Led by Lazada Group, the visit will take place from 23rd to 25th February, 2017.

Highlights from the three-day visit to Hangzhou include a rare opportunity to hear from Jing Jie, Vice President of Strategic Partnership Development, Alibaba Group and Aimone Ripa di Meana, Chief Marketplace Officer, Lazada Group. Sellers will get insights into eCommerce landscape development and best-practices when selling online. The delegates will also have the chance to visit and network with other successful sellers such as Semir[1] from Alibaba's Tmall platform as well as attend two training sessions on "Operations and Assortment Planning for Singles Day" and "Online Customer Management" conducted by Taobao University.[2]

Apart from Singapore, sellers will be flying in from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam; all markets that Lazada operates in. These sellers have worked closely with Lazada throughout the Online Revolution 2016 event, and have emerged the top in their respective product categories, such as fashion, electronics, and other fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) categories.

These top performing sellers have experienced strong uplift[3] in their sales during the month-long Online Revolution sale. In addition to their exceptional performance during the shopping event, they have also offered great value to shoppers with their deals and efficient product dispatching. They are also on record for achieving the least number of returns and cancellations on their products.                                                              

Alexis Lanternier, CEO, Lazada Group said, "Across the region Lazada hosts about 55,000 local and international sellers. In Singapore alone, our sellers have helped us reach an assortment of 5 million products."

"As a marketplace, it is our responsibility to empower sellers and equip them with the best tools available to help them succeed. This inaugural business trip for our sellers to Hangzhou, is one of many opportunities we will provide them with, to enhance and grow their businesses on Lazada Singapore."

Ed Fung, Director at Shoppy and one of Lazada's top sellers, shared, "The eCommerce landscape in Singapore can often be intimidating. Working with Lazada has simplified this experience for us in many ways. After joining Lazada, we have grown our business by an additional 50% and have always had access to new opportunities and insights. We are excited to see what the trip to Alibaba and Hangzhou will bring."

In addition to learning opportunities overseas, Lazada offers sellers a comprehensive suite of tools and solutions to make their online business a success. The seller centre for instance gives sellers a comprehensive overview of their business with Lazada. It is also a mobile platform for sellers to manage their business on-the-go. Sellers also receive a weekly performance report from Lazada with details on areas they can improve on for better sales.

Sellers in Singapore are currently gearing up for Lazada Singapore's 3rd Birthday Sale which runs from March 21st to 23rd. Sellers who sign up from now until March 20th, get a three-month commission fee waiver[4]  as a Birthday perk!
