Durian season is here, and as much as we want to get our hands on the best-selling but also lowest-priced durians available, it’s essential to conduct extensive research on the seller before making an online purchase. Buying the King of Fruits for considerably less than its retail price may seem suspicious to some, but we can’t deny that there will be some people out there who might still fall for the trap.
So, there is a method to protect yourself from these durian scams: buy from legitimate sellers and the best way to do that is by purchasing via Shopee. You may have confidence in this e-commerce site since it will be collaborating with the Federal Agriculture Marketing Authority (FAMA). The goal is to make the new Durian e-Fiesta campaign a location where real durian growers and merchants can be empowered.
Furthermore, the Shopee Guarantee guarantee protects all transactions on the platform.
For those who are unaware of this policy, it will basically cover all transactions conducted on the platform at all times in order to safeguard users. According to the rules, Shopee will hold payment in escrow until you have certified that the products acquired are genuine and in excellent condition before releasing the funds to sellers.
This will allow us to go through a return and refund process that may be completed in as little as 15 minutes once authorised and if purchased using ShopeePay, enabling a worry-free buying experience on the platform.
In order to normalise the sale and purchase of agricultural goods online in light of the current pandemic, FAMA has partnered with Shopee to continue its Durian e-Fiesta for the second year.
As one of the largest e-commerce platforms in Malaysia, Shopee is primed to actualise FAMA’s aim of helping agro-food entrepreneurs in marketing online.
With the new partnership, both parties were able to digitise 211 durian merchants and prepare them for the Durian e-Fiesta campaign. And, ideally, the campaign and collaboration with FAMA will help us all to overcome our fears of getting scammed and help us to enjoy our favourite durian with peace of mind.
eFAMAPLACE sellers on Shopee will be having daily Shocking Sales from now until 31 July, which will see limited quantities of Musang King, D24 and Kampung durians up for grabs from as low as RM0.77 at 12 AM daily.
