Southeast Asia’s largest online used car trading platform, Carsome entered the e-commerce space to sell used cars online through a collaboration with Malaysia’s no. 1 e-commerce platform, Shopee.
Consumers are now able to purchase an exclusive premium selection of used cars on Shopee’s platform. All listed cars, complete with car specification details and multi-angled photos, are Carsome Certified, and come with a one-year warranty and a five-day money back guarantee. Additionally, Shopee users can purchase a RM500 cash voucher at the special promotional price of RM199 and use it to pay for the down payment of their selected cars.
According to Carsome Co-founder and Group Chief Executive Officer, Eric Cheng, the collaboration enables Carsome’s official store on Shopee to be the first online store selling used cars in Malaysia. “We are proud to work with Shopee, who have been very supportive in our endeavor to reshape and elevate the used car buying experience through digitalization,” Cheng said.
Regional Managing Director of Shopee, Ian Ho said, “We are excited to welcome Carsome as the newest addition to the Shopee network of brands and retail partners. This partnership enables us to offer Malaysians a wide selection of quality used cars. Now, browsing and searching for a new ride is made so much easier. The launch of Carsome’s store on Shopee is also just in time for our upcoming 10.10 Shopee Brands Festival. Carsome will gain exposure from the increased customer traffic to the platform and by leveraging it, bring about the awareness that users can now experience a new way of shopping for quality used cars.”
Consumers can browse for cars from the Carsome Official Store on Shopee at https://shopee.com.my/carsome.os. On top of that, they will benefit from ongoing new launch promotions which will include exclusive Carsome merchandise for the first 100 test drives.
Additionally, the Trade-In Discount Programme will offer customers who have previously sold their cars to Carsome will enjoy a RM500 discount when they purchase a car from Carsome. Customers will also be able to benefit from the Refer-A-Friend Promotion, where successful Carsome car buyers can invite their family and friends to buy cars from Carsome. Both parties will receive combined cash rewards of up to RM800.
