Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the new online marketplace, Hoseok Kim said that launching 11street in Malaysia is the company’s aspiration to offer a trustworthy and convenient online shopping platform for local consumers to shop for a great variety of quality products at competitive prices.

Kim said, “With an established global presence, one of the key differentiators of 11street is a good mixture of local and global brands, whereby buyers can enjoy shopping for high quality products not only from local sellers but also from credible sellers worldwide.”

“We are committed to bring onboard the latest and the most popular products from the overseas markets, especially Korea and other Western countries, to enrich the local consumers’ shopping experience at competitive prices.”

Kim further shared, “At 11street, we strive with our sellers to make price competitive deals for the benefit of the Malaysian consumers. We recognized that in recent times, local customers are hard-pressed due to a combined effect of the recent general price increases as well as the rising costs of living. ”

“To offer our customers a stress free and enriched shopping experience affordably, we will be the first online marketplace in Malaysia to offer lowest price guarantee under the ‘Shocking Deals’ section of our service that will enable local customers to continue enjoy shopping while saving more.”

He added, “At the same time, 11street has included additional product verification layers to ensure all products’ authentication as part of our effort to be a trustworthy online shopping platform and to protect our customers from counterfeit.”

“Leveraging on 11street’s platform and operations know-how, coupled with Celcom’s experience and local customer knowledge, we are confident that this collaboration will be successful as it signifies our commitment to enrich our customer’s digital experience,” said Dato’ Sri Shazalli Ramly, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Celcom Axiata Berhad.

First established in South Korea in 2008, 11street has grown and became one of the top global e-commerce marketplaces with 400,000 sellers serving over 30 million consumers worldwide. 11street also has presence in Turkey and Indonesia, known respectively as n11 and elevenia.
