Get ready! Brace yourselves!

2019's Lazada 9.9 Big Discovery Sale is coming at all of us with the greatest deals ever! Well, we're already used to all the great deals and steals, so this time around, they invited us over to talk about all the new functionalities they will be introducing in the platform. 

It was a super rainy day yesterday, but we all somehow made it to Manila House on time! 

Bea Fabregas was a very beautiful host. She also hosted the Add To Cart Livestream party if I remember correctly. 

Mr. Ray Alimurung, CEO of Lazada Philippines, was the man of the hour as he was the one who revealed all the biggest changes and additions to Lazada. But before all the big revelations, he opened the program with gratitude for all the supporters of Lazada throughout the years. 7 years ago, Lazada was more leaning on gadgets, and it wasn't really the one-stop-shop it is today. The platform grew as they partnered with conglomerate merchants, massively expanded the types of products available, and improved the payment and logistics experience of consumers. 

Okay now for the big relevations!!!

1.) Pre-Sale Downpayment System
Even before the 9.9 sale, you can already secure your most coveted items at their discounted prices! Lazada is now giving the option to customers to pre-pay a 10% non-refundable deposit to secure a sale item. Y'all can now breathe easy as no one will take away your favorite sale items away from you anymore. Just be sure to settle the balance within the specified transaction period to complete the order! This is in the initial rollout, too, so only selected items will have this feature this time around.

2.) Convenient Bills Payment
We always joked that we can find anything and do anything at Lazada. They made it real! You can literally do anything at Lazada now as you can now pay for  Meralco, Maynilad, Manila Water, Albay Power & Energy, Davao Light, VECO, Metropolitan Cebu Water and Prime Water bills in the Lazada app!!!

Moreover, you can enjoy up to Php 300 cashback when bills are paid using the Lazada Wallet from now till November 2019.

3.) Order Collection Points
It's always a woe of every shopper if one's not around when a delivery is expected to arrive. Lazada is now turning Japanese and offering convenient pick-up locations for online purchases! You can now claim your Lazada orders at select SM Malls and GrowSari branches. Just add to cart and select pickup instead of delivery when you shop checkout your items.

Here is the full list of Lazada Philippines collection points:

4.) Personal Consumer Loans
BillEase, pera247 and TendoPay are partnering with Lazada so you can now apply for a personal loan to shop when you want to! Loans go from Php500 to Php50,000. You simply need to apply for one, and if approved, the loan amount will be credited to your Lazada Wallet which you can use upon checkout. Loan schemes will be offered in one to 12 months repayment options to make it light and easy for customers.

5.) E-commerce Exclusive Helicopter Flight Experience with Ascent
YEHP! Lazada is now selling helicopter tours, in partnership with Ascent! You can now skip Metro Manila traffic, or whisk yourselves away to nearby getaways like Tagaytay.

Yes, I was honestly very pleased with the big revelations! I'm personally the most excited about the pre-sale downpayment as there really are some items that just sell out so fast... 

And yaaaay thank you Lazada for treating us to a scrumptious lunch! They went for a Japanese fusion meal yesterday... 

Excited for everyone to Discover with Lazada at the 9.9 Discovery Sale!
