Angkasa eyes launch of e-commerce portal Shopeera in April

PETALING JAYA: Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Bhd, the Malaysian national cooperative movement or Angkasa, aims to launch its e-commerce portal, Shopeera, by April 7, and strengthen its cooperative business in Asean through the platform.

Vice-President Mutadho Bahri said Shopeera should be featured immediately to compete with other players in the market.

Angkasa, as the chairperson for the Asean Cooperative Organisation (ACO), lauded Shopeera by electing its subsidiary, MyAngkasa Holdings Sdn Bhd (MHSB), as the portal administrator, he said at a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony between ACO, MHSB and D&B Concepts Sdn Bhd, the portal developer, yesterday.

MHSB chief executive officer Shaharuddin Mohamed said Shopeera had good potential as its 13,000 cooperatives and 160 million members would want to tap the massive Asean market.

“The soft launch today is to create awareness for ACO members. Shopeera has a good potential market outside Asean such as in China, Japan and Korea,” he said.

D&B Concepts Sdn Bhd chief executive office Daniel Phan said it expects to clinch monthly sales of RM3 million, three months from Shopeera’s official launch in April, from at least 2,000 businesses. – Bernama
