Lippo to launch new e-commerce business in April

After the launch of its Matahari Mall online shop last year, Lippo group is expanding its e-commerce activity into wholesale services.

The Indonesian conglomerate is set to launch in April, which specifically targets businesses and government institutions, unlike Matahari Mall that targets end users.

In a bid to offer its customers a large variety of products, Mbiz is inviting vendors of a wide range of products to join its platform as suppliers.

Its stated goal is to offer a simple alternative to cumbersome conventional procurement, where a business has to find vendors and compare them one by one, negotiate prices and record transactions manually, which takes a lot of time and effort.
