Wendy Liu, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of ezbuy.sg states: “Last year’s inaugural 65eDay saw unprecedented number of shoppers visit ezbuy.sg. As a result, we reported 20 times spike in transaction volumes over usual business days. To faciliate easy shopping online, ezbuy.sg is the first and only ecommerce platform to launch Prime – an annual membership subscription service in Singapore and the region. Prime allows for consumers shopping exclusively on ezbuy.sg to pay a flat rate shipping fee of just S$2.99 per shopping cart checkout regardless of weight or size. Since the launch of Prime, we have seen an increase in the number of consumers buy bulky items such as furniture.”
Other key activities lined up during the 65eDay period include Friends Deal, Deals of the Day, limited time Flash Deals at up to 90% discount, and a 3-day live auction of sale items from 3 to 5 June via ezbuy.sg’s Facebook page. There will also be a “Share to Unlock Free Agent Fee (FAF)” campaign on Facebook to allow for a FAF extension between 1 and 5 June – further shaving 8% off the final bill for new customers. S$10 cash vouchers will be issued with every new or renewed Prime Annual Subscription. Singaporeans issued with NS50 vouchers can trade their vouchers for cash at ezbuy.sg’s Tai Seng Service Centre with amount credited to their ezbuy.sg accounts immediately.

CO-FOUNDER & SINGAPORE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Wendy is the Co-founder of ezbuy Group Holdings – operating out of Singapore and Malaysia, and is the Chief Executive Officer of ezbuy Singapore. Wendy, a Singaporean citizen, is a First-class Honours graduate in Electrical & Electronics Engineering with a minor in Business from the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore and holds a Master’s degree in Industrial & Systems Engineering from the National University of Singapore. Prior to co-founding ezbuy (formerly known as 65daigou) in 2010, Wendy was a Product Engineer at Global Foundries (formerly Chartered Semiconductor). Wendy caught the technopreneur bug back in her university days. Whilst her peers stuck to the minimum core subjects curriculum, Wendy elected to take on additional business and e-commerce related modules out of sheer curiosity and interest. These extra modules paid off and opened another door to embrace the beauty of online e-commerce. Wendy got to learn and appreciate the ideation behind the convenience and savings consumers enjoy from online shopping. Technology companies are by far much more efficient than traditional brick-and-mortar shops and as a result, can report better capital performance. Digital businesses do not require heavy upfront investments and offer mobility and flexibility to operate anywhere, any time, and round the clock. The seed to become an entrepreneur in the e-commerce space was implanted. On a visit to China, Wendy was impressed by the unlimited product varieties that China e-commerce platforms offered. When another would-be entrepreneur came to Wendy with the idea of creating the same level of convenience in the South-east Asia region, Wendy said: “Yes, let’s do it!” Wendy’s core duties include overseeing the Marketing and the Global marketplace departments. Wendy grew the company from zero to 2 million customers in less than three years. Today, ezbuy is and remains Singapore and Malaysia’s first and largest global shopping platform by page views and number of distribution points. ezbuy allows consumers to shop for items direct from China merchants and overseas online stores out of China, Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan and the USA, with access to millions of products worldwide while paying the least in itemized costs. Wendy is effectively bilingual in English and Mandarin.
