Lazada is offering shoppers an assortment of discounted items marked up to 90 per cent off and surprise vouchers worth Bt1212 available for collection at mid-day and midnight, the company said.
Lazada has also joined hands with global play and entertainment company Hasbro to provide toy donations to underprivileged children in Thailand.
Jack Zhang, deputy chief executive officer of Lazada Thailand, said, "Lazada sees the last quarter of the year as the golden period of e-commerce as consumers start to search for special gifts for their loved ones for the upcoming festive occasions including Christmas and New Year... We hope all Thai consumers will enjoy making their wishes come true during our Lazada 12.12 Grand Year End Sale mega-shopping event."
According to a 2018 survey by Facebook IQ on the Thai e-commerce market during the year-end holiday season, more than 39 per cent of Thai consumers made a holiday purchase on mobile devices.
