Background

The current COVID-19 outbreak and the measures imposed, including the movement control order has changed the landscape of how business is done, especially for micro, small and medium enterprises. AirAsia is responding towards this situation by opening up its ecosystem and making its resources available to all local businesses, starting with those in Peninsular Malaysia.

S.O.S  Campaign

Save Our Shops (S.O.S) is a campaign to help as many local businesses as possible, and AirAsia is making available the below resources:

  1. OURSHOP, the e-commerce platform of AirAsia will be hosted on the website airasia.com, which receives significant traffic.

  2. Products sold through OURSHOP will be delivered via Teleport, the logistics arm of AirAsia

This campaign will enable merchants to sign up at ZERO COMMISSION & ZERO LISTING FEE to market their products on OURSHOP, for the whole month of April. However, these shops will be required to cover the banking transaction charges of 2% for each sale made.

Local businesses who are interested to be a merchant can sign up at www.ourshop.com/seller.
