Lazada Malaysia chief executive officer Hans-Peter Ressel said every year Lazada sees a larger pool of online shoppers with growing diversity across generations and geographical locations.

“Our record-breaking performance in the Online Revolution campaign showcases the growing trust and relevancy of e-commerce in Malaysia and how it will continue to benefit Malaysian consumers as well as the entire e-commerce ecosystem,” he said in a statement.

The top five selling categories include fashion, motor and media, baby and toys, electronic, as well as groceries.

Most orders had come from Selangor, Penang, Johor, and Perak.
