Created to empower social sellers to capture the opportunities from the rising digital consumption trend, GrabExpress Sellers Club aims to help social sellers to gain better digital skills to grow their business and reduce their operational costs involved to maintain their online stores. Through this, Grab Thailand, TikTok and AIS SME hope to unlock the business potential of these MSMEs and contribute to Thailand 4.0 via a thriving social commerce sector.
Ms. Chantsuda Thananitayaudom, Country Marketing & Partnership Head, Grab Thailand said that “It has been 2 years since Grab launched the on-demand package delivery, GrabExpress, in response to the customers’ need for instant parcel delivery services. One of our main target groups include the Social Sellers, which is currently in the rise in accordance to the e-commerce trend in this era. To leverage the efficiency of our parcel delivery service for our valued customers, we initiated the GrabExpress Sellers Club, an exclusive project with special privileges to help unlock the potentials of online merchants, especially among MSMEs for their sustainable business growth. The project truly aligns with Grab Thailand’s business direction for 2021 in uplifting digital skills to support Thailand 4.0. We will do this through 3 key areas, including Uplift Digital Literacy, Improve access to Digital Inclusion, and Increase Income Opportunity. We have observed a change in consumer behavior in Social Commerce and its businesses, we therefore initiated this project to better respond to our merchants’ needs for an instant parcel delivery, in order to stay at a competitive edge in this arena and help reduce costs for our online merchants. GrabExpress Sellers Club offers special delivery services through GrabExpress, as well as supporting them through online marketing solutions with a rising social platform, TikTok. We also teamed up with AIS SME, a leading network and holistic digital services provider, to support small businesses or SME with special promotions and full-speed internet packages exclusively for online merchants.

Ms. Sirinit Virayasiri, Head of Business Marketing, TikTok, one of the key partners of GrabExpress Sellers Club said that “Thai MSMEs have widely been adopting e-commerce in response to the New Normal ways of life. As the leading platform, TikTok sees the importance of digital businesses and launched our digital marketing solution, ‘TikTok For Business,’ that comes with a unique solution tailored to support the holistic needs of all business sizes, or ‘Full-Funnel Marketing Solution,’ to increase Awareness of customers, Engagement between the brand and customers, Consideration, and Conversion to finally make a purchase. Our collaborative effort with Grab Thailand aligns with our values in supporting online merchants to initiate new perspectives towards digital marketing effectively. We provide various digital marketing training courses through our TikTok platform to upskill all merchants, as well as a special package, ‘GrabExpress x TikTok,’ to enable joining merchants of GrabExpress Sellers Club with a new communicating channel to reach more target audience groups through TikTok For Business.”
