Lazada Vietnam Awards Scholarships to Underprivileged Students
In collaboration with Vietnam National University in Hanoi, Lazada Vietnam last month awarded 100 scholarships to underprivileged students in relevant eCommerce fields. More than 500 local brands and sellers donated proceeds toward this Light Up ECommerce Talents campaign, which raised more than VND500 million (USD21,300) for the scholarships.
Lazada Singapore Achieves Highest Score in Second Annual Anti-Scam Ratings
Lazada Singapore received the highest possible score of four ticks in the second edition of the Transaction Safety Ratings by Singapore’s Inter-Ministry Committee on Scams. This is the second consecutive year that Lazada has been recognized for its efforts in implementing necessary safety measures to secure transactions on the platform. Since achieving a full score in its first year, Lazada has continued to roll out measures to maintain and enhance the safety and reliability of its online shopping environment. For example, in December 2022, it introduced a new feature that releases payments to sellers only after consumers have confirmed their receipt and satisfaction with their orders.
