Ebay assists Malaysian SMEs to export overseas - Digital News Asia

In a statement, the company said SMEs are the backbone of Southeast Asia's economy and a vital tenet of the regional economic architecture. It noted that in Malaysia, SMEs account for 97.2% of total business establishments, contributing 38.2%, or more than US$115 billion (RM512.8 billion), to the country's GDP in 2020.

In 2020, the region's eBay-enabled small business community made sales in 214 international markets, it added. eBay said its global marketplace is uniquely positioned to offer Southeast Asian SMEs e-commerce export opportunities. It added that while less than 20% of traditional businesses in each of the six markets highlighted in this report export, all eBay-enabled small businesses in Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam are exporters, and more than 95% in Malaysia, the Philippines, and Singapore use eBay to reach global consumers. eBay’s regional general manager for Southeast Asia and India Vidmay Naini said, “The marketplace offers 142 million active buyers across more than 3,000 product categories with market access to 190 markets. On eBay, export is no longer the privilege of large enterprises only.” “SMEs in Malaysia can easily reach consumers in some of the world’s largest consumer markets, such as the US, UK, Germany, Australia, and become ‘mini multinational corporations,” he claimed. The report noted that seven of the top ten export markets for eBay-enabled small businesses in Malaysia are not in the top ten for traditional exporters.

According to Liow, “eBay has opened more countries for KOR to branch out their business including countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom.” “During our infancy stages, it took us time to learn and adapt. Later on, eBay suggested moving most of KOR inventories to the US warehouse via the SEA forward deployment initiative,” Liow said. “Upon doing this, our sales increased by tenfold and continued to rise as KOR became acquainted with buyers' wants and needs, and eBay provided the insights to enable us to tap into the global scene,” he added.
