Lazada’s New Pre-Sale Solution

Never miss out on the items you have been eyeing with Lazada’s new pre-sale feature giving new and loyal Lazada shoppers a head start and more time to discover and lock in their purchases. Simply order the item, place a 10% non-refundable deposit, settle the balance within the validity period, then wait for your order to arrive at your doorstep! Do note that the new pre-sale feature is only applicable to selected items.

This new feature comes on the back of a successful pilot in Malaysia during Lazada’s Mid-Year Festival earlier this year. By placing a non-refundable deposit, shoppers can secure products at great discounts well ahead of sale day.

“We are confident that Filipino shoppers, partner brands and sellers will welcome this new deposit feature as it assures shoppers they will be able to get products at the best deals, while helping sellers better forecast demand and plan their inventory and fulfilment more efficiently,” Alimurung mentioned.
