Event Description

Since Alibaba acquired the Lazada Group, Alibaba has implemented countless changes in their commercial management. These changes have had a tremendous impact on the vendors selling on the Lazada platform. These changes include:

  • Implementation of “Seller Rating”
  • Transition to automation in commercial processes
  • Launch of Lazmall

While these changes have been made to support a more self-sustained platform, the overall impact has been vendors systematically losing sales revenues month-over-month on the Lazada platform. Our speaker Khang, Intrepid CEO, will be discussing these changes, the consequences they have had on e-retailers, and the potential impacts on other marketplace platforms.
