If you are an avid book reader in Malaysia and often purchase books from Amazon, you must already know how much the shipping fees are pain in the neck. Bookurve, a local startup that was founded by my friends Hossein and Lian Shen is addressing this issue.
Value proposition of their startup is simple;
- Give access to wide selection of books (almost any books sold at Amazon is available on Bookurve)
- At a cheaper price (usually 20-40% cheaper than Amazon)
- With free shipping if you order above RM25 (for West Malaysia)
They have taken few pivots to reach to their current business model. And I’m optimistic about it, as it’s working pretty good for them.
Last week I tried out their service (mainly to see the end-to-end customer journey and provide feedback) and ordered my first book, received it few days back and couldn’t be happier
Give it a try..
