Philippines- May 18, 2014–EasyShop.ph’s pre-launch event called the “Sellers’
Night” drew a huge crowd Saturday evening as online sellers, bloggers and
others in the web community joined the company’s officials and partners to
celebrate the newest online marketplace based in the country at the Green
Lounge Events Place at the BTTC Center in San Juan City, Philippines.
Officer (CEO) and President of EasyShop Online Inc; Sam Gavino, web development head; and Jerry Pereda, marketing chief were present during the festivities
and took turns in convincing the audience why EasyShop is the next big thing in
the online buy-and-sell marketplace.
present were online bloggers numbering around a dozen, roughly 20-25 online
plus other guests including supporters and partners of the fledgling company.
data as of May 16th is that we have 2,000 registered users in our
website and around 5,000 products already posted,” proudly shared Liao during a
roundtable with the bloggers.
figures look promising indeed as the website’s official launch is still on June
15, 2014 but more importantly, Liao emphasized on the security of the
site—using the phrase “scam-free” multiple times during interviews.
online buy-and-sell sites, it’s just a platform; it is not engaged in the
transactions of the buyer and seller so there are lots of scams or it’s open to
potential scams. They open the platform and then leave the buyers and sellers
to their business; that’s the problem they don’t have any sort of monitoring,”
said Liao, a graduate of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde in 2009.
main difference with us is that EasyShop is engaged with the transactions to
assure that the money is secure. Unless the buyer has received the goods it’s
only then that we release the money to the seller. On the other hand, sellers
won’t have to worry about the payments since the money is already with EasyShop
even before delivery.”
between the discourse by the designated speakers for the night, prizes and
freebies—from smartphones, tablets to a big screen LED TV– were given away via
a raffle for those who had signed-up in the website and attended the event.
the partners for the pre-launch event are SKK Mobile, Mogao BS Mobile,
Michaela, CCK Mobile, Yousie and Epson.
