Shopee Launches Raya Campaign & New AutoMall Section with Attractive Deals

Shopee just launched its Raya campaign, and the e-commerce platform is offering quite a number of interesting deals. On top of that, the platform also unveiled a brand new section exclusively for vehicles, which include both cars and motorbikes.

And get this: you can even purchase properties from S P Setia on Shopee now. Naturally, there are attractive incentives if you buy these properties from Shopee. Let’s break down everything Shopee announced recently.

One of the most interesting announcements today has to be the new AutoMall section. As its name suggests, you can purchase a range of vehicles on AutoMall. These include cars from Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Ford, and BMW.

If you’re into motorbikes instead, YesRide is offering various bikes on AutoMall. It has Yamaha, Kawasaki, KTM, and many other motorbike brands.

So why should you purchase vehicle’s from Shopee AutoMall? Well, for one, the booking fee can be as low as RM1, though this is up to each individual retailer to decide. For example, the booking fee for a Honda City costs only RM9, while you need to pay RM200 to book a Toyota Yaris.

But the most attractive deal is definitely the promised interest rate and discount if you purchase vehicles on AutoMall. According to Shopee, you can get interest rates from as low as 1.8% per annum, as well as discounts up to 29%. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

In order to purchase vehicles on AutoMall, you’ll have to first “buy” your desired vehicle on Shopee (which serves as the booking fee), enable push notifications, fill in a form, and a dealer will contact you to confirm appointment. From there, you’ll have to complete your purchase and paperwork at the dealership.

For motorbikes, the steps are a little different. Once you’ve purchased a bike on Shopee, the seller with contact you for JPJ registration; the motorbike will then be delivered to you once it’s ready. Of course, there is also an option to select 0% instalment plan.

Besides AutoMall, Shopee also talked about S P Setia’s first digital store on its platform. Currently, there are several properties from the developer on Shopee, which are located in Selangor, Penang, and even Johor. You’ll have to pay RM688 booking fee for either of these properties, and once you’ve done that, the developer’s sales assistant will contact you within three working days to proceed with the purchase.

Right now, the first eight buyers to (successfully) purchase an S P Setia property on Shopee will get several incentives. You can get up to 25% off on “selected prime locations,” Shopee vouchers worth RM3,888, and a free home kit worth RM5,000, which include electrical and home appliances.

If you’re not looking to get a new property or vehicle, Shopee’s Raya campaign has a number of good deals too. Not only are there different promotions every day until 6 June, you also get free shipping with lowered minimum spend of RM20 with DHL (until 24 May) and J&T Express (until 9 May).

Besides that, Maybank Visa Signature Card users can also get 10% Shopee Coin cashback for the whole duration of the Raya campaign. If you don’t have that card, worry not: Visa card holders can get RM15 off with a minimum spend of RM150 on selected days.

With the launch of the AutoMall section and properties (albeit only limited to S P Setia now), Shopee is really becoming one of the most complete e-commerce platforms now. Granted, Lazada had a short collaboration with Volkswagen last year, but that was a one-off thing – AutoMall is a permanent fixture on Shopee.

Nonetheless, if you’re planning to do any Raya shopping, Shopee got you covered with deals until 6 June 2019.
