SINGAPORE - Qoo10 has emerged the No. 1 Singapore-based e-commerce platform, after being named 'Best Online Retailer' at the AsiaOne People's Choice Awards 2015.
Over a period of three months, more than 250,000 AsiaOne readers voted online for 500 brands across 27 award categories.
To reflect changes in consumer trends, the inaugural 'Best Online Retailer' award was added to the line-up this year.
Mr Adrian Tay, Editor, AsiaOne, said: "The AsiaOne People's Choice Awards always takes into account people's changing behaviour. It's quite obvious that online shopping has crept into everyday life, and therefore only natural that the PCA introduce this new category."
The e-commerce marketplace edged out nine other nominees, including Taobao, Rakuten, Lazada, Zalora, Redmart and Luxola, to take top spot.
"AsiaOne readers are well-read, well-travelled and unafraid to voice their opinions. So to be voted as the people's choice means that Qoo10 is well regarded by a high caliber audience as well as one that is happy to associate themselves with its services," said Mr Tay.
Mr Sam Too, General Manager (SEA Division), Qoo10 Singapore, said: "What is even more rewarding than winning awards is the knowledge that many Singaporeans are shopping on Qoo10 and making us a part of their lifestyle. This year is the fifth anniversary of Qoo10 in Singapore and we are striving even harder to deliver an unrivalled online shopping experience for all our customers."
