CEO, Youbeli

“The Malaysia Top E-Commerce Merchant Awards 2016 is an encouraging move for the sector, but the success of an e-merchant is not just about the volume sold.

At the same time, the e-merchant’s commitment to e-commerce will be tested, and can be seen in how diligently they present their product.”
