KUCHING: Lazada Malaysia and TNG Digital are joining forces to introduce #KitaBantuKita, a RM6 million incentive programme to stimulate the local economy towards a post-Covid-19 recovery.

The RM6 million incentive programme aims to speed up and support the government’s digital-led recovery plans by strengthening the digital economy.

The incentive programme, in partnership with TNG Digital, will accelerate the greater use and adoption of digital platforms and payments among Malaysian consumers and merchants, especially small enterprises and retail businesses, as well as helping them bounce back and thriving in the new normal.

The programme also protects the livelihoods of over 320,000 local small medium enterprises (SMEs) and netpreneurs on the leading e-commerce platform.

As such, Malaysians will be able to enjoy savings of up to RM36 each through #KitaBantuKita platform-wide vouchers and rebates while shopping on Lazada.

Chief executive officer (CEO) of TNG Digital, Ignatius Ong, said that the team applauded the government’s effort towards cultivating an increasingly cashless society within the recent economic recovery plan, with initiatives such as the one-off RM50 allowance for eWallet users and discount vouchers.

“It showcases that digital payment is the way forward for secure and safe transactions, especially in the current global pandemic.

“Through this #KitaBantuKita incentive programme with Lazada Malaysia, we will further help boost the country’s economic recovery and promote a sustainable payment solution via the Touch ‘n Go eWallet,” he said in a press statement on Tuesday.

From now until 31 July, the #KitaBantuKita incentive programme provides up to RM36 savings for Malaysians via the following, namely instantly useable, no minimum spend, RM5 credit for new Lazada Wallet users; instantly collectable RM10 discount voucher for new Lazada users when activating account;

instantly collectable RM3 discount voucher for all Lazada Wallet users; instantly collectable RM3 discount voucher for all Touch ‘n Go eWallet users on Lazada; one-off RM5 cashback for the first purchase on Lazada by new Touch ‘n Go eWallet users; and one-off instant cashback of up to RM10 for the first top-up on Lazada Wallet
