Introducing HOME+, a Shared Economy e-Shopping Platform
Transforming Online Shopping with Unique Cross-brand Collaborations
HONG KONG, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As consumers structurally shift their shopping habits online under COVID, HOME+, a brand-new e-shopping portal, launched today to answer the long-term needs of household consumers in the buzzing e-commerce marketspace. Created to take traditional online shopping experiences to all new levels of care and attention, HOME+ delivers a heart-warming "plus" by supplementing a diverse range of wholesome foods, appliances, health supplements and personal care goods.
Shared economy platform with zero slotting fees or promo costs
Unlike other legacy e-shopping channels, HOME+ does not charge merchants a slotting fee or annual fee to showcase and promote their products on its online platform, instead it will take a Win-Win-Win (Win3) partnership approach by actively co-investing in cross-media promotions to help connect featured brands to an established broad spectrum of consumers. Through cross-branding, a key feature of the platform, Home+ empowers merchants in different sectors and sizes to collaborate and achieve critical mass to sell their products in unique "cross-brand" combos. By encouraging merchants to work closer like partners, HOME+ can unleash near endless possibilities to help businesses grow. For example, merchants can take advantage of HKBN's massive reach of ~1-in-3 households and ~1-in-2 active companies in Hong Kong, as well as make use of the geographical reach of the store networks of Hung Fook Tong, Dah Chong Hong, Eu Yan Sang and Hong Kong Society of Rehabilitation as self-pick-up points.
Engaging businesses of all sizes and social enterprises for win-win-win
William Yeung, Executive Chairman of HOME+ said, "In today's new normal, HOME+ has built a shared economy platform on the established incremental economies of our partners. Via revenue share rather than fixed mark-up costs, HOME+ opens itself up to merchants of all types and sizes (including small businesses and social enterprises), allowing them to much more easily and far more cost-effectively to reach online/offline customers on a massive scale. We aspire for Win3 for all by drawing merchants to share resources, combine strengths as to deliver to customers products of great value."
"HOME+ is now in commercial beta-stage, selling products from over 400 different brands, and we expect to see this number grow exponentially within our first year," William added.
Featured brands on HOME+ include products/brands under Dah Chong Hong, Hung Fook Tong, Green Common, Green Gables, Vita, Eu Yan Sang, AUSupreme, Samsonite, Canon, Sharp, Vermicular, Gemini, and environmental social enterprise Eco-Greenergy, as well as the latest smartphones from HKBN and other suppliers.
Cross-brand combo shopping
Adding a touch of care typically lacking in the online shopping experience, HOME+ will offer customers the choice of packaged supervalue-for-money cross-brand combos, which feature a complimentary selection of goods.
Around 70 self-pick-up points across Hong Kong
Customers who buy from HOME+ can make convenient use of around 70 self-pick-up points (to be expanded to over 100 by end of 2020) across Hong Kong.
