Good to Know: Online Shopping Sites in Malaysia

Last updated July 2018

Online shopping has taken the world by storm and Malaysia is a happy participant. The online retail experience has improved tremendously over the years with the addition of certified reviews, the ability to report a bad merchant and fake goods, as well as more secure payment methods. People in Malaysia are shopping online so much more now because of the convenience and availability of better deals online. Take a look at some of the popular shopping websites in Malaysia below, and let us know if we’ve missed anything out.

Apple iPhone 6 128GB

The iPhone 6 has an increased 4.7-inch display, a similar screen size as last year’s Moto X. It’s big for Apple phones, but still on the smaller side for Android phones, which have moved, lately, to the 5-inch territory. iPhones have always had phenomenal displays, in terms of brightness and color quality both: David Katzmaier here at CNET has tested the last few, and they’ve been among the tops in smartphones. We haven’t done full display testing on these new iPhones yet — stay tuned for that — but the iPhone 6’s 4.7-inch IPS display looks vivid, rich, and as good as that on the iPhone 5 or 5S, just bigger. But not that much bigger. The display’s 1,344×750-pixel resolution is higher than the iPhone 5/5C/5S’ 1,136×640, but it has the same 326ppi pixel density. It’s a good step up, and a big help for nearly anything you’d use your phone’s screen for. A grid of six-by-four apps now fits on each page plus the four in the dock below, for 28 total: on the 5’s 4-inch display, it’s 24. T

What is the best store to order baby gifts delivered to malaysia?

Andrew Lee

In my country Zalora has became one of the biggest online shop, I wont be surprise if it goes IPO any soon. Just a matter of time Malaysians will start to shop at home because of the ridiculous jam or maybe they still want to try out the clothes before purchasing? time will tell. Anyway for those who want to shop in Zalora Malaysia, get yourself this 20% coupon code that i found online before checkout, “VOUCHA” best part about it is that it does not have any minimum spending that you see Zalora spamming on your newsletter.

I used to shop at http://www.nile.com.my as they provide 24 hours cash on delivery in Klang Valley Area, Good Service

I wished Amazon shipped more products to Malaysia. That website is definitely the king of online shopping!

Ben Hock Seng
Nick

I agree. They’re quite restrictive on what they ship to Malaysia. Amazon has been more focused on developing its technology products rather than international expansion. You can read our article about using Amazon in Malaysia here: http://leapingpost.com/2013/06/08/amazon-in-malaysia-what-you-need-to-know/

Thanks for this! I never knew that Amazon delivered some products to Malaysia.

I’ve heard there have been issues with delivery for Lazada and Zalora. However, I’ve never ordered from them. Can anyone share if they’ve had good or bad experiences with the delivery from those companies?

Ben Hock Seng
Nick

I’ve ordered from Lazada and haven’t issue with them. I also had a good discount!

Sasha Amran

I’ve ordered from Zalora and both Lazada. My feedback is:
Zalora: No problem with delivery at all. Only might have some problems with the sizes when it comes to shoes. I can never properly fit their size 8 when I am a size 8. But for clothes, they are such a great buy.
Lazada: Great prices and beats going to Low Yat in the traffic jam for buying mobiles, tablets, powerbanks and etc. Only problem is, sometimes the items arrive separately if you buy in bulk. Their home appliances is not bad either.

Ben Hock Seng
Nick

Thanks for sharing your experiences! Much appreciated!
