E-commerce platform opens to public

WAWA Shopping officially launched its e-commerce platform in a ceremony at its office in Kampong Mata-Mata yesterday, with WAWA Shopping Advisor Md Norilham bin Haji Jais officiating the launch.

“The public can now access WAW Shopping via a desktop, laptop or mobile,” said WAWA Shopping Operations Manager Pengiran Hilman bin Pengiran Matyussof, adding that the website was designed to be modern, interactive, responsive and highly user-friendly.

“Users can find a variety of categories and products to shop from including fashion, kitchenware and gadgets, as well as Hari Raya fashion and décor for the upcoming festivities,” he added.

The guests were given a tutorial on how to navigate through the website. Local businesses and entrepreneurs can also sell their products through the newly launched platform.

“Wawa Shopping can be a marketplace for vendors; we can help them to connect to their target audience. Hence our slogan, shop for everyone,” said Pengiran Hilman.

Meanwhile, WAWA Shopping Director Faiz Shadiqin said, “We hope to reshape the e-commerce industry in Brunei.

“The locals often shop online via other countries’ e-commerce platform due to convenience and price. We hope to change that and encourage the public to support local vendors registered under our website, who can offer competitive prices compared to other e-commerce platforms.”

In conjunction with the official launch of the website, customers can enjoy free delivery for a limited period.

WAWA Shopping is an online shopping platform where customers can purchase goods and items from fashion, shoes, home decor to supermarket groceries
