While Amazon’s arrival in South East Asia is still unconfirmed, Lazada is hard-at-work in improving their services, in case the giant e-commerce brand come to compete. Just recently, we’ve spotted on their website that a service dubbed as Lazada Express Delivery is now available.
This same-day Lazada Express Delivery comes out right after they started offering the CoD (Cash on Delivery) option for international products. This clearly shows that Lazada is encouraging everyone to be on board with their services.
The new ultra-fast delivery service is identical to Amazon Prime’s same-day delivery. This is for those who need their orders right away or those who just can’t wait for another day to receive the items.
The Lazada Express Delivery is only available if you ordered before 1pm, with an extra charge of Php29. If you exceed the cutoff, you can still go with Next Day Delivery. But in most cases, your product would be delivered the following day anyway, so acquiring the extra service is unnecessary.
On the down side, the service is only available in selected areas around Metro Manila, Laguna, and Cavite. But as the service matures and becomes successful, we might expect it to expand in other locations around the country.
